3.0 out of 5 stars Depending on what your looking for.... August 13, 2002
By A Customer
Yes FLEX is a good magazine (I've been a subscriber for many years), however it depends on what is it that you're looking for in weightlifting and nutrition. If you inspire to look like these gentlemen on the covers of FLEX, ok. But if your looking to be fit, eat healthy, be active, FLEX might be a little to much for you. After a while you'll realize that you will not (and would not want to) look like most of these giants of the sport. On a positive side, the pictures and routines are very helpfull and motivating. And their nutrition articles are helpfull too.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent magazine for a hardcore gym rat..... July 26, 2008
Verified Purchase
I like this magazine a lot better than Muscular Development magazine. MD claims to be the biggest magazine, but that's to their disadvantage. MD is too hardcore, but after a while all the articles contain the same content. All of the pages are a lot of the same old stuff. Flex magazine is new and fresh every month. It is a little bit commercialized, but it makes it able to be read by either male or female workout enthusiasts/bodybuilders. It is filled with a lot of unorthodoxed workout routines to help add some spice to a plateauing workout. I used to subscribe to Flex, but switched to see what all the hype was about on all the other magazines. Now I'm back and I would definitely recommend this magazine to anyone who works out.

I think it is worth the money because I was able to get it download for the kindle app which was a plus. The articles are good and some of the workouts I have tried have gotten good results. Would buy it again.

I am a tiny female who get this magazine due to the fact these guys KNOW what they are talking about when it comes to training, diet and form. Form is everything and it takes a long time to build a foundation for body building with heavier weights. I have learned more from this mag. than all the women's mags. put together. What works for them will work for me, just use less weights. I have begun training more seriously since I have found all the great info in this mag.
For GUYS, this is a MUST to see what the Big Boys are achieving. Really accurate, invaluable research and info.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get Huge! September 13, 2005
So you want to get big. You want ladies to gaze approvingly at your body when you are at the beach, you want to make the football team and you want to be able to pummel the annoying nerds who yell out the answers in your math classes. Or you are approaching middle age, and you want to get those muscles back so you can feel like a kid again.

This is the magazine for you, my friend. Each issue is packed with advice on training and nutrition. There are articles by and about the top name bodybuilders. There are pictures that will inspire you to drop your copy of the magazine on the coffee table, hop in your car, put on some motivational music and drive to the gym. This is the best bodybuilding/weight-lifting magazine on the market today. Provided you are disciplined enough to follow the advice in the magazine, you will improve your appearance and you will feel more powerful. Men will look at you in awe, and women will look at you in lust.

Why do I only give this magazine 4 stars, then? Two reasons. First, I think there are too many advertisements in the magazine. It is annoying having to flip through them to find the articles. Second, I think that the magazine can get a bit repetitive. If you have read 15 issues of the magazine, you will start to see that the training articles are essentially the same. There is not that much difference between Chris Cormier's back workout and Kevin Levrone's back workout. These minor criticisms should in no way deter you from buying the magazine. It is worth reading because it will motivate you to go to the gym, watch your diet and stick to your workout regimen. I have been reading Flex for ten years, and I credit it for helping me develop discipline, and for improving my self-confidence (maybe it improved my self-confidence too much--look at how condescending some of my Amazon.com reviews are!). Anyway, buy this magazine, eat 200 grams of protein a day, and get huge! Good luck.

4.0 out of 5 stars About SERGIO OLIVA in new issue of Flex..... July 12, 2003
By wbryant
I am glad to see that the Weiders are once again featuring The Myth-Sergio Oliva in the mainstream Weider publications.
Oliva made quite an impact back in the 60's. He had an an incredible V-shape and was huge. When Sergio hit a most muscular shot--it was positively mind blowing! Then Oliva would throw those huge arms overhead and hit his signature pose which nobody could come close to.
My only complaint with the articles was the inference that Sergio won NABBA/WABBA and WBBG shows against "mediocre" competition?
Serge Nubret, Bertil Fox, Kalman Szkalak, Dave Johns and Tony Pearson, just to name a few, could hardly be called "mediocre" competition. Nubret beat Ferrigno, Zane, Columbo and others and all of the above mentioned men were Mr. Universe winners.
Szkalak beat Mike Mentzer for the IFBB Mr. Universe and Dave Johns beat Casey Viator for the NABBA Mr. Universe.
In 1976, Dan Lurie's WBBG organization, hosted a Pro show called 'Mr. Olympus that rivalled that years 'Mr Olympia. Oliva won that beating Nubret, Tony Emott (Pro Mr. Universe) Chris Dickerson among others.
Flex mag is a great hardcore mag. Great you are doing features on Oliva, how about doing one on Nubret and Draper now.
