July 2007

One of the best covers we have seen in a long time, this special 60 year birthday issue of Arnold has actually five covers starting the magazine, with one of the most creative covers we have seen in a long time. Some magazines have different covers for the same issue, but this one just put them one after the other. This is a collector's issue, and they won't last long.

Muscle & Fitness is considered to be the best of the non-hardcore bodybuilding magazines. It contains lots of information about the principles of fitness & bodybuilding. Each monthly magazine usually contains information about weight training, nutrition, training, bodybuilding and many other topics that are current in the bodybuilding and fitness world. Muscle & Fitness is more of a mainstream bodybuilding magazine, which has excellent articles and pictures. On the cover is Arnold, Arnold, Arnold and Arnold.
