So over the last week or so a lot has been said about MT and it's ridiculous amount of advertisements that would make some consumers' monthly subscriptions a little lighter to carry to their couches. The other day I took the time to actually count the amount of pages dedicated MT in the latest issue of FLEX Magazine...
These numbers aren't exact, but I know the MT # for a fact. Keep in mind I included all of their sister companies as well...
LG - 5 pages total (The "Don't be a *****" one was priceless!)
USP - 5-6 pages
AI - Only recall 2 pages, there could have been more, but HANK WAS IN ONE OF THE ADS!!!
MT - 65 pages!!! Including sister companies. WTF!!!

Hahahaha. Well, they ARE the best.

It comes in cycles...right now its Muscle Tech...before that it was Met Rx...before that it was EAS....there will always be a supplement company that is overhyped...the consumer demands it...

I actually did a paper on this for an advertising class and found Muscular Development to be the most advertised in with something like 70% of the magazine being advertisements.

Well go a step further and count how many pages of pure advertisements there are in Flex vs any articles in there. I used to have a subt o Flex but I soon found the articles to be getting contradictory and every year coming up with the latest fad. I soon found myself only cutting out ads like Universal Nutrition and use them to hang up on the wall just for inspiration purposes. I use convesations on the internet now for my learning in part. I find it hard to go through any magazines anymore.

i just picked up a copy of MD in the march edition and i find this magazine to be really good, i really like reading about all the braking news on supplements they print, but the magazine does get blurry between real articles and ads.
I wouldn't mind subscribing to it but at $50 for annual subscription is too much.
