I couldnít agree more, they should be ashamed of themselves.

Absolutely, although it doesnít surprise me. Bryce comes across as a guy who will only think about the business and would be more concerned if it caused any negative impact/connotations than it being respectful to do so. Obviously, I donít know him but he seems to have that air about him imo.

I been invited to have one every year for the last 6-years and have never had it until this year. Zero issues with it and I will be having it again.

Even though the Ruskies are known to meddle in things completely outside of what they should be doing. Seems a bit incredulous that any westerner would believe them. Confused

I think he quit but only because his vision has become so impaired that he knew he was at risk of a big right hand and some serious damage.

Itís a pity really because from an age perspective, the future of British boxing is with Dubois but that jab of Joyceís did a number on him. I often think Joyce looks a bit clumsy and square on (which is ridiculous for me to say about an Olympic medalist ) so he doesnít look like heíll get much power in his right hand but that left flicks out so frequently that itís bound to cause damage. Joyce seems to have a right engine though. Never stops throwing and never seems to slow down due to it.

I think whilst Dubois has more professional fights to his name the lack of amateur pedigree played to Joyceís advantage.

I do enjoy watching Kirill's posts on instagram. Not much training these days but plenty entertaining enough. I just wish he'd speak more English in them as my Russian isn't that great*

I'm okay work and housing wise.
I messaged her today, in terms of what is happening with her and the kids over the next year. Obviously, I would like to be reasonably close to them, so I am not travelling hours to see them.
Her response was "It's not up to me to tell you what to do with your life. You know how I feel about you having the boys right now and in the next year, or so. I'm not going to comment on how I may feel in the future".
Just remember - she hit me, twice, in the last year. I never so much as laid a finger on her. But, she has convinced herself I am the issue.
A mate of mine who is a clinical psychologist, said that she has a classic narcissistic view of herself: she can never view herself as the antagonist - only the victim, or hero.
So, she does mental gymnastics - and extols her continual control freakery - to convince herself, that I am a bad person: and she is beyond reproach.
Which is somewhat challenging for me. To say the least.

Personally, from now on I would only contact her through traceable means and would go as far as to screenshot EVERYTHING she says and keep it in a separate folder on your phone/laptop. Let her hang herself with her unreasonable behaviour.

danbaseley said:My girlfriend of five years left me, and took our two children aged 2 and 3 with her, at the start of Lockdown 1.0.

She kept me on the hook at the family home, whilst she lived at her parents, for 6 months - saying she did not know how she felt.
Then in the space of a day made, effectively made me carless, jobless - by disconnecting the Internet - and homeless.
The car she took, then sat - unused on her parents gated drive for almost a month. At that point she had two SUVs, in a house which had 7 cars.
Had it not been for a local mate, who is a landlord at a pub, I'd have been jobless and on the street at the start of October.
She "allows" me to see my children for 3.5 hours a week, twice a week.

She tells me that I should be grateful for this - as its more than a lot of fathers get.

Still, it means I have not been hit by anyone in a while.

On the plus side, I have a six pack for the first time ever.

s**t, that sounds f**king awful mate, so sorry to hear this. Us men really seem to get the s**tty end of the stick in these situations. That said, make sure you keep hold of what you can. Can you use your phone to set up a personal hotspot and use that for internet for the laptop? Is the car in her name? If not, get it the f**k back. Start court proceedings over access, you'd like get at least every other weekend plus one night during the week so far better than what she's allowing you currently. Don't let this break you man!!

Just seen a post by Eddie on Instagram. Absolutely devastating for his family and friends. So sad.

AdamT said:I never competed strongman

Is it a case of when you're older, it is just harder to recover between events?

I doubt Brian or even z is much weaker, but with the increase of age, recovery is a major issue. Also just wear and tear on the body that younger athletes don't have

I don't or never have claimed to be strong, but in my 20s/early 30s I could lift heavy every day while doing cardio if I wanted

I'm as strong now as ever and still quite fit, but I can't train with the same intensity and if I do? My recovery goes up the left

Cardio and lifting on the same day is not something I look forward to

Gone are the days of a max effort lift and then go for a run for an hour

Even a 5% drop in strength is a massive issue though. Imagine Usain Bolt losing 5% on his 100m. He'd go from 1st to last place. Whilst the depth of field isn't that great in strongman to make it such an issue it still means banker events become top 3 and average events become close to bottom and that's just too much of a drop.

On a separate note, DAMN I wish I could remember my log in details on my phone. I was regularly updating this last night but couldn't post anything as I can't remember the god damn password. Tried 20 different ones this morning to no avail so I'm stuck to using my laptop when I want to post.

unit94 said:Martins would be a great presenter to have

He'd be a great personality to have presenting. Doesn't take himself too seriously, funny as f**k and will know exactly what he's talking about. Rather than like this country were you had the bald dude and Eddie doing a bit part on presenting, I think Martins could present the full show himself and just have other people do the little stand in bits.
