Favorite Magazines?

#1 Postby robert » Mon May 09, 2005 12:55 am

As far as magazines go, some great ones that I enjoy are:

Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness Magazine

Muscle & Fitness

FLEX

VeggieLife

Vegetarian Times

I don't think that Muscular Development or Ironman, or Muscle Mag are worth buying, although they do have some awesome photos.

Feel free to list any favorite magazines you suggest we read.

Vegetarian Times is a great magazine. (I just got a 3yr renewal subscription on Ebay for $10!!) I'll have to check out VeggieLife. Which of the first three magazines you have listed would you say you find the most useful?

Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness is cool because it is all about natural athletes and bodybuilding naturally.

Muscle & Fitness is pretty mainstream and is also pretty good but has a lot of un-natural athletes in it. The information is still pretty good.

FLEX is for extreme bodybuilders. I've been into bodybuilding for about 5 years now so I know a bunch of those guys, but for the average athlete, FLEX won't do much. It is mostly for hardcore bodybuilders.

Muscle & Fitness Hers is pretty good I think.

Also, Oxygen and Shape are pretty good women's fitness magazines.

I would read them if I saw them in the store, however I rarely if ever buy magazines. I pretty much get all my info online and in my course study booklet.

My favorite vegan rag is Herbivore magazine. http://www.herbivoreclothing.com/magazine.page.html

They had a feature article on Brendan Brazier in the last issue. I'm not much of a writer, but I'm thinking of submitting an article on this summers Vegan Fitness Week in the UK. 8)

Awesome dude, starting writing stuff. FLEX Magazine, the biggest muscle freak magazine there is, had me in there 3 years in a row........kinda strange for a magazine that features the best bodybuilders in the world to have 7 photos of a vegan bodybuilder in there over those 3 years, along with 3 of my articles.

I've been in other magazines as well, just by simply writing and submitting articles.

I think I'll refine and submit my "Presenting Veganism" article. If you haven't read it, I think it's a great idea for people to see it so check it out.

It should be featured on the front page of the main website www.veganbodybuilding.com

I'm not sure "where" to submit an article such as that, but I think it will really help people promote veganism in a positive way....read it and you'll know what I mean.

So, please do a report on the Vegan Fitness event in the UK and tell them I say hi as well.

Have you ever submitted anything to Vegetarian Times? They might be interested in printing something about you and the site.

I may have submitted to Vegetarian Times before but I don't really remember. I should submit more stuff. It has been quite a while since I submitting anything to magazines. I've mostly been doing website articles.

Thanks for the suggestion. I need to get back to writing and get stuff sent off!

Keep on me about it so I don't forget :lol:

Veg news is a great mag. More articles than recipes and they seem to have more of a focus on vegan products than veg times.

The oly mags I generally buy are called "New Vegetarian" Australian edition. It is based around vegan/veggie new age lifestyles. The only other mags are Australian Womens Fitness, and Muscle & Fitness Hers, as I love the models they use (athletic, fit but not fake). And of course all my organic alternative lifestyle mags "Warm Earth" etc.

personally I like to read local newspapers to keep up on local and wordly events. I do most of my health, nutrition and building research online.

When I was in college I subscribed to Vegetarian Journal. It only comes out (could be different now) ever other month. I also subscribed to Vegetarian Times but I found Vegetarian Journal to be way more useful. I think I still have some of the old magazines.

Got to admit, even though most of the mags aren't aimed @ women, I still enjoy the "freaks" in mags like "Flex", Muscle & fitness, BodyFitness, Australia Ironman etc. Most bag us vegs but I am an absolute lover of the "old school" bodybuilders :shock:
