Which magazine is better? I'm sure many of you would say neither since some of their exercises/advice are gimmicky, but at just $15 for a 12 month subscription, I figure there has to be something in there that's educational or useful.

Men's health seems targeted at younger, mostly single, men.

Men's Health has a lot of B.S. articles that I've seen. Same with Women's Health, which tends also to post articles about nothing but sex and yoga on its Facebook wall. Very annoying.

Better for what? What are you looking for in a magazine? No one can really answer without having that info.

Neither one. You can find much better information for free on bodybuilding forums.

Men's Health tends to be a little less of a hardcore fitness & exercise mag than does Men's Fitness. MH seems to also usually have articles on a wider range of topics, almost at times getting into a sort of Average Joe's GQ type mag, while MF tends to pretty much stick with straight-ahead fitness and workout tips. If you're a hardcore gym rat or body builder and are always looking for the newest, flavor-of-the-month exercise and diet fads, then you'll prolly like MF better.
But if you're just mildly interested in working-out and living well but also like to read the occasional article on, oh, say Nice Vacation Spots, or Cool Big Boy Toys, or How to Make Her Wetter than Seattle in October in The Bedroom, then you'll probably enjoy MH more.
MH also has a better sense of humor, I think.

I use to subscribe to Men's Health, but I got tired of all the countdown articles like "110 ways to live better" and "20 ways to get ripped". I couldn't find many of the countdowns because they were single ideas scattered all over the magazine, and they just counted them all together instead of putting them together. But it looked good on the cover.
I've picked up a few Men's Fitness magazines, and they seemed to have more workout tips.

Both magazines are pretty much the same. Nothing great, nothing bad about either of them. VERY interchangeble if you ask me. They make for good reading material in the bathroom though.

Muscle and Fitness I think are better than the two you mentioned though.

HAHA that's what I was about to say. Something to read in the bathroom.
