    Forums are dead. Most people will use Facebook/ Instagram where they can appeal to a larger group of people. Especially young ones where they are trying to gain a following and make some money out of it. No point appealing to a bunch of fcuking has beens on some forum.

    The majority of forums is basically a platform to push labs and talk shite anyway. They are hardly inspiring.

    I’m pretty sure there has been an increase in competitors. Any BB show I’ve attended has risen in popularity over the past few years.

    Don’t think it’s a lack of balls or phaggotry. 2can pulled 290kg for a set of 3 and put a video up. To me that is fcuking impressive and it doesn’t matter if he does it in his gym or at a competition he still lifted the weight.

    Same as Thor deadlifting 501kg. To me he is the record holder and until someone lifts 502kg+ in a competition or in the gym he will continue to be.

    Thanks for thoughts.

    We did a thread on this. There was a decent discussion actually and Brian Shaw nailed it for me.

    Yea and I understand where people could have an issue with it as it wasn’t within the parameters of a competition setting. Brian’s point was pretty fair.

    For me though I couldn’t really give a shit. I just want to see people lift a lot of weight regardless of where it is done. I find strength the impressive aspect and not the comp. I actually think Thor would have lifted more at a comp. Thats my opinion anyway. Maybe slightly biased due to the fact that Eddie is prick and i just don’t like him. I have referred some strongman shows and have meet and seen what eddie is like. Chaps a Cnut.

    I used to compete in strongman by the way so this isn’t coming an armchair POV.

    This is derailing the thread a bit though. So to sum up. Ken stop being a phaggot, get back on the TTM and start lighting heavy things again.

    Agree with that. Thanks for the compliment too

    FB and IG reach a much larger audience as you say, so people don’t use forums anymore, Con is a good example of this, binned TM to build his insta account (wasn’t working last I saw but may have gained some traction now)

    For someone to be confused as to why new competitors to iron sports don’t instantly create a TM account just means they are a bit out of touch with reality. Which is fine it happens when u get older

    But now they know so all good innit

    Known data
    Increased trainers.
    Increased competitors.

    Unknown data
    TM : active users and new accounts.

    Once we have all the data, we can then analyse and provide conclusions.

    Delicious.

    Never posted on IG. Not once. And only follow around 20 people, most of them PL’ers or fit IG birds. And my GF obviously as she made me :lol:

    Gonna start trying to build it up as we’ve agreed forums are dead. I wanna see how long it takes me to get to 100K followers

    I predict 2-3 weeks

    Thinking about it, I reckon that the boys are correct in that the numbers of active users and new accounts has dropped from its peak (probably 2012 at a guess) and has been declining ever since.

    Would be good to see the data though.
