Whereabouts Chris? After a little bit of ill health and time away I've got back in the gym but the same old surroundings, people etc is becoming tiresome.

As the title says. A good programme with a good Strongman segment to end.

Ok mate thank you. I'll get you a cheque sent over and if you have to knock the opens on the head then so be it.

Hi mate just a quick one for you. Are there any spaces in the opens? I'm not too fussed about being scored to be honest I'd like to use the comp as a gauge as to where my interest lies following a couple of health issues I've had over the past few months that nearly finished me off.

Please don't think I'm trying to devalue your comp by saying that, I'd just like a competitive environment (which ain't a million miles away) to see if I still have a genuine interest in lifting as a whole and a goal to work towards.

IME of doormen (excluding those who I know as friends and dont see how they behave on a Staurday night) a lot think they are "ten men" and are looking for an excuse to have a scuffle/barney


There is a massive difference between those who have the ability to work the doors and those who have the money to pay for a license.

In the last 12 months I have had over 1200 candidates sit the course on front of me. Of those no more than perhaps 50 demonstrated to me what I'd consider the correct attitude to be successful. Of those I've only asked 6 to work next to me.

Not sure if that says more about me or the industry.

Agreed there are always people out there who will be hell bent on causing trouble and as a Doorman you will inevitably get caught up in it if you do it for long enough.

The comment I made about the industry being what you make of it I feel needs a little more explanation perhaps. The security industry as a whole, not just working the doors, has excellent scope for career progression if your prepared to take a step back and think outside the box a little. Only because you have a Door Supervisors license, it doesn't mean that you have to work the doors.
That said it does take a certain character to do so. You need to realise that it is a profession and people's livelihood depend on it so it is important you understand that first. We don't live in the 90's and its not the same as it is on Rise of the Foot Soldier' so don't do it if you have a point to prove or if you have a chip on your shoulder. View it as a customer service job and be prepared to learn from people with experience, however just be aware of the guys telling you how many people they've knocked out etc. You don't get paid extra for fighting so as far as I'm concerned if you go home with a clean shirt with all the buttons on then you've had a good night.

500.00??? Me thinks people have been overcharging! I am the director of a company who specialise in the delivery of SIA qualifications based in the midlands. In order to obtain your Door Supervisor qualification it is a 4 day course run between 9and 5, you will have to sit 4 multiple choice exams and have one observational based assessment for the practical part of the physical intervention module.

The cost of the front line license directly to the SIA is 220.00 and if a company is charging any more than 150.00 for the 4 day course they are ripping you off!

As for working I agree with most of what's been said by all the previous posters. It's s**t, it's fun, it's boring, it's exciting, it's a home wrecker, it's a home maker.

I've made some good friends doing the doors, I've also had my fair share of 'issues'.

The industry is what YOU make of it.

Oxman that video was about the most simple I've seen the set up broken down, a quality find. Cheers mate

Mr Pateman I think that sounds like a plan, I've recently worked on my stop presses which helped my numbers jump over the 500lb mark. I believe you have a previous T&G attempt video'd from my last visit to the Warehouse over 12 months ago.
That said I did have a mess about this week with T&G with a bit of weight.

I'm certainly not claiming it as a lift but was fin trying with my go go gadget arms.

What you like for time during the week Jay cuz as it stands work has me occupied Saturdays and Sundays
