Very annoying

Right firstly I will explain the story.

Every year WSM/BSM is on I get emails off friends pointing out forums discussing the competitions. Everytime there is always an idiot that makes a comment about how fat I am etc. Basically I don't really understand why people would comment on my BF levels being I am not a BB and strongman is certainly not a beauty contest!! I know there was a post earlier regarding different physiques in WSM and that is not one of the threads I'm talking about, I'm talking about people being downright nasty!!

Why do people feel the need to comment on my bodyshape??

Anyway I always promised myself I wouldn't do this but I'm gonna anyway!! Give me your honest opinions people, would you consider me to have "rolls of fat"??



I know it's not a great picture but I think you can get the idea

    i dont see any rolls at all Terry to be fair

    youre not a fat bloater and youre not shredded, kinda in-between, but as you know its strongman not BB'ing

    Sorry to hear that people have been giving you stick mate its not deserved and i would tend to think that some of it surely must be from jealousy standpoint

    personally i would just ignore it unless of course its from someone you know personally

    Fecking ppl and they're pointless opinions, you're fat you're skinny - come over and let pop your head you little b.rstard..

    Mate ignore them, you're not fat, you're trained for the sport you do and as pointed out it's not a beauty contest.

    Maybe they should add an event to the stongman comps, how far can you throw the ppl that make such pointless and uncessary comments...

    You're one of the strongest blokes in the world. People will always be jealous.

    I also think there's a certain expectation since Marius came on the scene that that is how you should all look.
    As you say, looks don't come into it so fck em.

    And no, I don't think you're fat. You are what Eddie Hemmings(Rugby league commentator) would describe as a 'big unit'.

    It's harsh calling you fat. You haven't got abs like a spinter, but then that's not a job requirement for you.

    That's the thing I don't get!! Why make comments in the first place!! I should be judged on my performance and that alone!! You don't judge a marathon runner on their physique do you!!

    No you're not fat.

    I am basically an 18 stone version of you. I could be slimmer, I could be fatter. I'm not really bothered either way.

    Does somebody need a hug?

    Seriously though, You could have a 6pac you could great cheese on or you could have more rolls than a bakers.

    Doesn't change the fact you are one of the strongest Mo Fos on the planet.

    I do mate, its jealousy to be fair, you have things people themselves cant have

    Youre on TV, youre liked by the general british public, youre one of the strongest men on gods green earth and from the post it seems you also have a decent conscience

    Ive been called many names myself mate for different reasons but most of the time it all boils down to people being insecure about themselves and they try to make other people feel worse than they do for some kind of cheap ego boost

    Dont let it get to you

    p.s. good luck in next WSM mate

    It's quite funny it didn't used to bother me, but since I've been doing the strongman contests on TV, people are quick to comment!!

    at the end of the day.......

    a) you're strong
    b) you're heavy
    c) you're not fat

    these people will look at marius's physique and assume everyone should look like him, but imo he shouldnt look that good and be that strong

    id kill for your physique at 14 stone never mind 28 stone mate, now less of the bum licking from me

    I know that is right, the thing is people think because I've been on TV a good few times, I've put myself up there to be judged. That is further from the truth!! I'm just lucky I'm good at my chosen sport that is all!!

    With all the "lean bulking" credo flying about recently im more than baffled about the "Trinny and Suzannah" approach people are taking these days.

    I will say first that the commentators sometimes do make comments on physique whilst the show is airing Terry.

    It was only yesterday that a young cousin of mine made a statement about some of the guys not being "All muscley".... She has no idea about strongman and based her decsion purely on her naive factual grounds that Strong = muscular... Needless to say she got a sharp tongue from me.

    I think its pure misconception that people are linking strength with muscular powerfull looking physiques.


    Your doing an absolutely cracking job Terry mate. Its dizzying how people can come up with such random babble about your physique whenb as you stated it is NOT bodybuilding!! I would quite frankly disregard such idiot comments. Though I do feel I would take things personal myself as they are questioning you and not your strongman.

    Keep throwing the slag iron about bro! Middle finger to the nob heads.

    its just muppets that don't understand the difference between the two diciplines, you train for strength not definition. Its a completely different sport. Take big Glen huge guy massivley strong but he wouldn't be taking the stage in a BB competition in a million years. Your not fat mate you know you ain't and muppets that say you are need to shut up and show some fackin respect to a guy that is successfull in his sport.
