In another section, fitness guru Jay Cutler fields questions about the most effective exercises for achieving a rock hard body. “I favor ‘dips’ as a great mass builder,” says Jay. A similar result can be achieved by any dip with a sour cream base. Jon Jones, another physique freak who writes for MF reports that his favorite workouts are the Bulgarian Split Squat, the Keiser Push Pull and the Glute Hamstring Raise. Why he doesn’t include the Sumo Squat Stretch is simply a mystery to me.
The pages are also full of ads for bodybuilding supplements. Choose from Jet Fuel, Beast Amphetalin, Horsepower X, Shock Therapy and my favorite: Hemo Rage. Not only is it an effective nutritional supplement but it’s soon to be a major motion picture.

In the last article, there is a question-and-answer feature with Arnold, who is now in his 60s. He admits he doesn’t enjoy working with a big dumbbell, anymore. Coincidently, this is exactly why, when Arnold was governor of CalEEEfornia, his first chief of staff quit after two months.
