The lexicon of muscle-building, and training - Part 59


There are 89 issues of HARDGAINER. They provide more result-producing advice for drug-free bodybuilders and strength trainees than is available in any other magazine. They are crammed with practical advice, and wisdom.

HARDGAINER speaks to the hard-gaining typical individual. But average potential doesn't have to mean average achievements. In fact, an impressive physique and a terrific level of strength are well within your reach. They key, though, is in the right approach. That's what HARDGAINER is about. Fresh information, and the expertise and experiences of a range of contributors can be found in each issue. And there's plenty of grassroots material, to show you the ins and outs of the practical reality of applying abbreviated training.

The content of HARDGAINER doesn't date. The back issues provide a wealth of experience and advice, and include features such as:

Inspirational articles on developing the right training philosophy.

Sample workouts for bodybuilders, including specialization routines.

Programs for powerlifters, and strength trainees.

Advice for new, intermediate, and advanced trainees.
