Has anyone else seen the June 2001 issue of Muscular Development? Steve Blechman’s editor letter caught my attention. In it he directly comments about the latest paper issue of T-mag. He doesn’t like the fact that the author lists no credentials for the supplement review article but does use a “nut sack” rating system.
I also find it interesting how they (M.D.) are trying to become more “hardcore” and in the same editor’s letter, Blechman is trying to rationalize the switch.
Is it just me or are bodybuilding magazines trying to become more hardcore? Muscle Media talked about it, now Muscular Development… I guess they are getting ready to compete with Testosterone once it begins hitting the more mainstream bookstores.
I guess Blechman just needs a way to separate M.D. from T-mag. His letter sure tried to do that.
So what is everyone’s consensus on the recent changes being made? Is everyone jumping on the “hardcore bandwagon” or are the magazines learning that people are getting smarter and won’t buy magazines with pages of watered down crap?
