I got an account . I thought I’d run into other local powerlifters , and we would talk training ; or run into others who fish , and talk fishing . but no , turns out FB is for sending people imaginary flowers and hearts because everybody on FB is awesome ; or telling everybody they accomplished some heroic task on farmville.
pretty fuckin’ lame for the most part . I kinda do my own thing . I sometimes post my lifting sessions…just to show what I do with my time .
I’ll look ya up . it’ll be good to find someone else who trains . just dont send me any damned smiley faces ;)[/quote]
Don’t disrespect Farmville and the flowers and stuff.
You know you can disable those right? I shut that crap off a long time ago.
I’ve found Facebook to be a great source of connections for lifters. Some are local and quite a few are spread all over the place. I started with a few people I know on T-Nation and ended up connected with friends of friends and have gotten a ton of great information and feed back. I also ended up with a tenant via a lifter in Arizona and I live in Hamilton Ontario.
I don’t spend a ton of time on it but most of the guys that I know locally that I’ve competed or trained with are friends and it’s easy to catch up and see what’s going on.
