Muscular Development calls it Quits! Last issue Nov 2023!

Sad news – Muscular Development Magazine is shutting down. One of the last great icons of bodybuilding magazines.

The last major bodybuilding magazine is calling it quits, announcing that after this November 2023 issue, it will be the last. Also announcing that no more new articles, forum or info will be updated too. End of an era.

So the November 2023 magazine issue will be the last one… this is from the editors… I am writing with the sad news that Muscular Development has stopped publication. The official announcement was made in a letter to our advertisers from our publisher. The print magazine is no more and the website, while still live at this time, is not going to be posting any new content. The last issue of MD that was published was the November 2023 issue.

Rick Collins, who has been apart of the magazine for 22 years as a writer, shared a post on Facebook on Thursday sharing the news. “it is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to official muscular development magazine. After 250 monthly columns spread out over 22 years, touching on all things fitness, hormones, law, and culture, I have been advised that the magazine is closing up shop and will print no further issues. So sad. When I started, print was still a powerhouse and social media didn’t yet exist. It’s a different world now. I will deeply miss working with the members of team md, and I wish them well in all their future endeavors. What’s next for me? I’ll keep my day job lawyering my butt off and maybe see what else looks interesting!”
