    Looking for a training partner.

    My Stats:

    Male
    35 years old
    177.5 lbs
    5'11''
    Body Fat: about 13%

    Type of training I do: Mostly endurance running and triathlon. Right now I'm training to run the Pikes Peak Ascent: http://www.pikespeakmarathon.org/. I just ran the Garden of the Gods 10 miler this past weekend. My time was 1 hour 32 minutes so about a 9 minute mile pace. I'll be running a few other races this summer but the ultimate goal is to run the Pikes Peak Ascent in 3 hours and 30 minutes.

    Running: 4 days a week - about 20 miles total each week.
    Weight Training: I have some tendonitis in my shoulder so all lifting is put on hold for right now.
    Martial Arts: I attend a kung fu class twice a week.
    Swimming: About once or twice a week. This needs to become more regular.
    Cycling: Very little at this point.

    Goals:
    1. Get my weight down to 170 with 9% body fat.
    2. Run the Pikes Peak Ascent in 3:30.
    3. Increase my swim and bike training enough to compete and finish in an Olympic distance triathlon. Preferably the Boulder Peak Triathlon: http://www.boulderpeak.com/
    4. Get back to weight training 3 times a week.

    Anyone out there have the same kind of goals?

    5'6"
    146-lbs. @ wakeup
    BF = 14+%

    Shooting for 10% for now. Check maintainability @10%. Possibly proceed below, depending on lean mass retained...

    I have brown hair, brown eyes, Sagittarius, I love cars, 80's metal... :D

    Age 20, almost 21
    195lbs
    6'3"

    guessing aorund 16% BF%

    ive been this weight for about 2 months now, maybe a little more or a little less. Initially began at ~230lbs and probably 25% BF% so i've made huge gains but my diet is preventing me from trimming down the rest of the body fat. I'll try to get some pics up here soon, but is anyone interested in an 8 week, really really strict diet/exercise plan? The diet is my huge problem but im much too lazy to figure out absolutely everything i eat and make a good plan. I need the motivation! If someone is interested iny making a diet plan with me, i'd probably be more interested in perfecting it;)
    As it is, im going to the gym about 5 days a week. let me know!

    If you guys want a third I'll go in with you.

    Age: 28
    Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 239
    BF%: 32%

    Or if one of the other 'big' guys wants to go in with me. Lord knows I need some more motivation to lose weight. Lifting isn't a problem though because it is so fun.

    42, 5'8" 162lb (down from ~200 a year ago), last BF measurement with calipers was 14% which I think is way too optimistic from the looks of things. not so interested in a competition so much as "virtual" gym buds.

    what might be kinda cool is a forum for such a thing, or maybe merge it with this new one. each little group could start a thread for its members or something like that.

    well the good news is that i did a REALLY quick 3 point calliper test today at the gym (first time i've ever done that) and he said i was at a whopping 14% bf!!! so exciting! i swear ill have pictures up soon

    but in any case, doesnt look like theres a partner for me. anyone around the same bf% at least and want to do a drop together? looks like i wont be able to find someone with similar stats, so ill take what i can get :tu:
