    The only magazine that I find that actually has some interesting stuff in it is "Muscle & Fitness". Most of the rest are a waste of money. Actually, if you go on their website, they have a cool section that actually lets you pick out a certain body part (i.e., shoulders, quads, triceps, etc) and they have lil videos that show you how to perform the excersize that you wanna do. Nuffin wrong with learning a lil something new or how to do what you already know how to do a lil bit different.

    The Men's Health Big Book of Exercises.

    I switched from P90X to this, and after 12 weeks, I lost 34 pounds. I was 322 or more @ the beginning of the summer (and I hadn't been that big since I was a college sophomore). 13 weeks later, I'm in between 285 and 287 and a size 46 in the waist. So yeah, it has worked.
