Planet Muscle Magazine has been around for three years now.


Planet Muscle Magazine has been around for three years now. My goal for the magazine is to survive, and to actually prosper without selling my soul, or to let a goal of profit overtake a quest for the understanding of truth.

Planet Muscle will endeavor to disseminate the truth; reliable, accurate training and supplement information, as well as quality editorial, without pulling punches. My own opinion is that our magazine news stand market is saturated and that all the magazines have too much of a specific agenda and unyielding approach.

Contrast FLEX, an enormously popular, information-jammed periodical which stresses professional bodybuilding contest results and training, with MUSCLE MEDIA, which has no professional bodybuilders or results, stressing supplements and unusual training approaches. Both are as different as night and day yet most trainees can only afford to buy one of the 5-6 bodybuilding magazines on the market!

M&F has moved gradually to a very wide, colorful array of recreational sports, physique training and other wide topics, still including bodybuilding, but the accent is on presentation of the physique, not so much the method. ANMD presents both a research (like Drs. Kraemer & Fleck) and personal anecdotal approach (as with Mike Mentzer) to training and nutrition. I like their diversity, as I do in Iron Man. Finally, MMI, has a down home, friendly and rumored coverage, perhaps, the most detailed as to the inside workings of bodybuilding.

I will publish Planet Muscle six times in 2002. Will I be selective in articles and advertisers, and will I direct my readers towards various training programs, equipment and supplements? Yes, you bet I will, just as I shall suggest you away from baloney. Planet Muscle will appear on the the newsstands for the first time all around the country in Spring 2002. Our cover price and subscription prices will be much less than any other similar magazine. Click here for rates and to subscribe.

I won't compete with the big boys, having somewhat of a different forum, but I will be unique, interesting, historical, entertaining, jocular, cutting edge and up-to-date, with useful, practical and honest information. I hope you like my approach and will support me! After all, it's your planet and your muscle!

Planet gives you everything you would want in a bodybuilding website, just like the TV show, just like the magazine. We are devoted to giving you the best bodybuilding information out there!
