No easy answer Mr ITRG I'm afraid. In an ideal world there would be enough 90k comps going on in Scotland to keep the under 90k guys happy. But there isn't. So obviously they need comps to do. Hence entering novices.

But it defeats the point of the novice title. Lets call it something else and be done with it eh?

just weighing in with 2 points

1. unit comp was not easy for me. won 2 events by 1rep - both in the last few secs. and anyone who was there can tell u i was f**ked after all the events - ie not taking it easy.

2. this comp was a good bit heavier than the natural national that i came 5th at last year.


Spoke to scott after a couple of events and yeah he was f**ked lol , it wasnt like he was holding back on us , he got the last stone up by the skin of his teeth and his winning rep on the finger was touch and go so no question in my eyes whether he should of been there or not , yeah he had the comp won before the last event but that happens sometimes , if memory serves didnt big loz win his heat in last years wsm with 2 events to go , didnt hear anybody saying he was in a weak group just how good and " consistent " he was , thats obviously the key and fairplay to scott thats what he was , cant remember him blowing the field away in any particular event , just that it was a different person getting second each time , you cant punish someone for being well rounded and coming into a comp prepared , I do think now is the time for him to move up but think it is perfectly timed and not overdue - good luck in the opens dude Happy

i dont see what the problem was it was my first comp had no idea what the set up was or anything wasnt bothered where i finished just wanted the experience, havent even used some of the equipment before, it didnt matter to me who was in the comp to be honest

Morning!.... Drunk babble. It was not really on topic, nor legible..............

Gist was that U90 won't go any where if it doesn't exist and after a few novice comps is it the inter 105's next for me?. Though this was interspersed with large ammounts of f**k knows.

My wife had spotted it and told me she couldn't read it/make sense of it, hence the edits!

Head is sore todayGrin

this is false!!
100 kilo plus is possible for all normal people (5ft8+) imo. People just dont want to do the hard work in the gym and especially in the kitchen.



Keeping bodyfat at healthy levels and not overeating is far harder than letting yourself remain/become morbidly obese.I could be over 100k in no time and have a great time doing it.

like brian said there were more than 4 people entered in ssm u90 but they pulled out... would people be moaning if there were 8, no probably not.

at the end of the day its a personal choice and i believe there is a market for it in scotland. everyone knows reputation means little going into a comp, so how would you decide who went to bsm u90 without a ssm u90 comp. just ask the person who is thought to be the best? not exactly fair on the others who could pull a blinder out of a comp and win it.

Why?

the standard of u90 recently is VERY high, chris jenkins comes into a comp who is world class what what he does but didn't just walk in and take an easy win the guy took 3rd and if i wasn't an unlucky f**k he would be sitting in 4th!!!!!!

but without people training hard to be ssm u90 it never will be.

mate if this is really your opinion that's fine, but if you are just taking the same line as your training group for the sake of it.... well, that's fine too.

but i think expecting the lads who want to be u90 to either gain weight or give up is a bit disrespectful.
