As said earlier, McCallum, Liestner, Starr…all worth the price of admission.
The typical layout of a mag is like this…
A personality profile, usually strossen interviews an oly lifter, strongman, the occasional PL, etc.
4-6 Strentgh training articles. Ranging from the very old school Steve Justa lifting anything not bolted down, to Listner and Starr, to the occasional article by Casey Butt or some other CSCS, which can be fairly sciency.
They cover major OL contests, Arm wrestling meets, Strongman, Highland games, both major and local. Not much PL, though they’ll usually have a summary of the major comps in the IronFillings section.
Yes, there are a few guys who profile old time strongmen…one guy writes about old soviets, another italians or whatever…If you dont like it, dont read it, haha it’s only a few pages, mienkia.
Also, they have a lot of article written by readers about, well, lifting stuff. If nothing else, you get to see guys who are elite and guys who are lifting in their backyards, but what comes through is the love of lifting.
If you are looking for a 16week spreadsheet program, then it’s not the place for you. There is the occasional program, but it’s usually very basic.
I have every issue from vol. 1.1 on…
