    Let me put this in a way you'll find more prevalent.

    If more people are tested for covid, there will be more positive results. Right?

    So if less people are on tm, there will be less competitors. Right?

    I stated it above in the thread from evidence.

    I also stated that BB is becoming more popular due to physique etc.

    Keep up mate.

    The forum angle is an interesting one though, Simon would have figures I reckon.

    Doesn't seem to go that way when people are charging 100 plus who haven't competed.

    In Asia all time high. A novice bikini and men’s physique show in China can pull 400-600 competitors. Just those two classes. Yes things have changed but I think it’s popularity is up when including the newer classes and I think will continue to grow , more and more shows happening here , more pro shows planned this year (we were due to have 3x as many as the year before ). I see that first hand just with our own training business too.... definitely growing. Even with Covid about. Classic physique also taking off in popularity which makes sense as BB is a long game and many Asians just aren’t big enough so will do classic and then aim for 212 or just do 212 if they are the bigger ones.... I would say that shows here are a step ahead. Money spent on the venue and stage. Korea pro was going to be very popular as they treat people well, out on amazing stage and effects., in China you’ll get celebs going too , it’s marketed very differently. No working mans club in a former coal mining town it’s high end hotel or casinos or proper nightclubs or theatre. Different product ...honestly it’s far more respectful to the athlete and why people wanna travel from the us or Europe to compete here

    Im Srs. Why did u never take the plunge and actually fight instead of just talking like your an expert online?

    I think I know why but I would like to see u admit it to yourself

    I was referring to Ken boxing mate

    Scared of being beaten and exposed as being all mouth would be my guess in his regard.

    Much better to challenge people to drive out of their way to fight u online, that way you can have as much bravado as u like and never have to back it up as the only person sad enough to be involved in such phaggotry is Ken himself. Dat master plan

    It’s interesting though that he’s forgotten that and instead chooses to call out younger lifters for not lifting in a low level meet or standing onstage at the local town hall

    But most of the regulars on here have competed in iron sports at some point

    I compete in PL’ing when younger (and offered Ken a direct competition last month which he quickly declined)
    GG did strongman
    Noel BB’ing
    Pooley BB’ing
    Golf Delta BB’ing
    Sunny did a gym comp and is thinking of physique
    RS strongman and PL

    I’m sure there’s others I’m forgetting. So out of the people who still use the forum I’m wondering who he is calling out?

    Proteinbrah and Phani Tikkla?
