    That was surprisingly better than I expected. I felt like they cut short the scope of who this program is for though.

    I know you're a humble guy, but honestly, how does being called "legendary" make you feel?

    It reminds me that they have to say that whether they mean it or not. Why would Men's Health talk to a coach who wasn't legendary?

    I am shocked this is in Men's Health. I've read it on and off for years and it's full of fluff and pump garbage that I did before I knew better. This would be this first time I've seen a legitimate program in their pages. Are they changing their model?

    Same feelings here. I think they should have made it more exclusive. But telling 99% of your novice readers that this "isn't for them" wouldn't make a good article, heh.
    I'm sure most general gym-goers would consider themselves TM ready according to the guidelines given in this article. And we know that wouldn't be correct.

    Let em try, and fail, and learn. If we're lucky (or unlucky, perspective blabla), those that want to get it right will come on down and ask for directions.

    And we'll dropkick em into repetitive inquiries where they belong.

    No, but I am na´evely hopeful that some doe-eyed novices will find their way here. Exposure like this couldn't hurt.

    Much

    Never read Men's Health. But I have looked at the cover in the grocery line and thought, "Damn I wish I looked like that" while buying ice cream.

    I have had a Men's Health subscription in the past. They tend to lock in on whatever is trendy obviously. When the movie 300 was relevant they would have Gerard Butler with the "300 workout" among many examples of this. This advertisement is probably a good thing for the Starting Strength brand, but I fear that the trend that Men's Health is locking onto isn't "Starting Strength" but they are locking onto the new IG trend of "powerbuilding" which is basically bodybuilding without "caring about your actual aestehtics"

    "Powerbuilding"

    That made me chuckle

    Another stupid portmanteau from the muscle magazines.
