Final Word


Fokken Great!

That was an interesting article on Brandan Fokken and how he is attracting more mainstream sponsors to the fitness world. It’s about time. Fitness is a billion-dollar industry, and millions of people are involved in it. Some fitness celebrities have a crazy amount of people following them on social media. I’m glad that major companies no longer look at us like narcissistic freaks posing onstage in our underwear and instead see real athletes with real value.

Editor’s Note: We agree! And with the more approachable look of the Men’s Physique, Classic Physique, and Bikini divisions, we expect to see more blue chip companies begin to knock on the door of the fitness world.

Physique Fan

Thank you, Iron Man, for covering the sport of Men’s Physique better than any other magazine. I love reading how guys like Jeremy Buendia, Jason Poston, and Ryan Terry train. Keep it up!

NFL Invasion?

I was a Javon Walker fan when he was in the NFL, so it is cool to see that he’s getting into Men’s Physique. The career of an NFL player is so short these days, I can imagine a number of wide receivers crossing over. I wonder if we’ll see a lot more guys transition from ball sports to physique sports?

Science Class

I’m a 26-year-old male reader of Iron Man. I like the short articles in the front of your magazine, especially the ones that report on the latest scientific studies. I see that some research uses animals or women or guys who aren’t in the gym as much as I am (six days a week). You should only include science stuff that deals with trained guys in their 20s and 30s since that’s who your readers are.

—Chris H., via e-mail

Editor’s Note: We’d love to only cover studies on 26-year-old guys named Chris who train six days a week, Chris. However, the universities and labs around the world that we follow are interested in a slightly larger grouping than that. We understand that an animal study or a fat-loss experiment using obese people as subjects may not exactly replicate your life. You have to look at our information as an N=1 experiment. Some stuff might affect you while it does nothing for the next guy. Your fitness quest is to figure out what works for you. Stay curious.
