    Looking for a partner - let's get ripped

    I'm interested to see if anyone wants to work as a partner. It could be a competitive thing or more just a support thing. I'm open to ideas.

    Here are some stats:
    24 year old male
    6' tall
    167 lb
    11.2% bf according to my tanita scale (that seems a little low)
    Goals: I want to feel light and essential. I'd also like to get some visible abs. So my first goal is to lower my bodyfat to 7%. I'm planning to cut down with fairly strict dieting and then settle into a diet based on whole foods once I reach the mythical 7%.

    current physical activity
    lifting 3x per week.
    swiss ball exercise 2-3x per week
    light cardio 1-2x per week
    occasional skateboarding / bicycling

    sample schedule
    sun - back/biceps/rotator cuff
    mon - rest
    tues - swiss ball video
    wed - chest/shoulders/triceps/rotator cuff
    thurs - swiss ball video
    friday - legs
    sat - light cardio

    One of my main goals is to improve my posture and body mechanics. So I'll be doing a swiss ball video a few times a week and maybe some work on a balance board.

    Here's a photo to get a sense of where I'm at now.

    I could use a partner also. I'm a 24 years old male, 6'1", 239 pounds. Haven't gotten my BF measured yet.

    My long-term goal is something in the 170-180 range by 6/25/2005 (wedding day).

    challange!

    Exellent!, I´ll challange you if you´re still up for it :)

    We seem to have quite similar stats,

    19 years old
    175 lbs (used to be 227)
    5´8" (i think??) 178 cm
    BF= I believe I shuld be somewhere around 20 aswell

    My goals are basically to lower my BF to get a ripped look, not necessairily any bigger, but I am willing to work hard to gain lean mass in the areas where I lack. It´ll all be more viseable after the fat is shredded off.

    I wouldnt mind some friendly competition ;)

    16 Years Old
    6'3"
    172 lbs

    Looking to really cut down to around 8% then start a nice clean bulk. I have been lifting/cutting for a couple months now, and have come a long way since i started. I used to be around 200lbs little chub chub. Still cutting though. I have found a really good lifting program though that seriously helps me a lot. I have seen so many great gains. So, if anyone is interested, give me a pm, or post here. I would really like to get started soon, because this could be just the motivation that I need to start training again.

    I also noticed there are no women looking for a challenge. I'm not interested in a challenge because I am content with my appearance. Are most of the women on this board in pretty good shape?

    Okay, I'm putting my journal in my sig, so you can see the whole story. I'm willing to pair up with someone in a similar boat (though the two of us in the same boat would likely sink it).

    34 male
    6-foot-2, appr. 340 lbs.
    BF%??? (quite a lot, since I'm pretty obese)
    Waist--around 50

    My goal is to achieve overall fitness; I haven't put any numbers on it, since I'm just starting and not very well-versed in the nomenclature. I also need to lose weight so my blood pressure will go down and my doctor can finally take me off of the BP medication (I've been on it for about three years).

    I probably need to get back to about a size 42 waist, and weigh in the neighborhood of 180-200 pounds (Maybe more--I've never been at an "ideal" weight, so I'm not sure what it's supposed to be). My plan consists of walking, weights, and a revolutionary change to a proper diet. I wouldn't mind getting "ripped" or whatever eventually, but for the time being, I'll settle for not being a big tub of goo. I'm on day two (6/30/04). Any takers?

    I'm interested in finding a partner (male or female).

    Age: 23
    Weight: 179
    BF %: (Approx) 22% (if I measured it right :whistle: )
    Height: 5'10"

    I'm interested in losing about 10 more pounds and 6% BF. I've had a lot of trouble losing these last few pounds. Maybe this will help? :)

    Im game!
    Age: 19
    Weight: 135
    BF: I dont think Im ever gonna be able to work those things!
    Height: 5'11

    Im not interested in losing more than 5 pounds. I'd love for my muscles to show! What I want to get out of this is to be very serious about working out and eating right, and to have somebody to share that with. And at the same time lower my BF % (not necceseraly weight - except those almost 5 pounds).
    ...If you are interested?

    Hi, I have begun my fitness program after months of horrid eating, and I'd like to find a partner as well.

    My current stats are

    5'9" and 218.0 lbs.

    I'd like to partner someone who has quite a bit of weight to lose like I do.

    Well, after being encouraged by AWD_ENVY to come here, here I am.

    ============================================
    My Stats:
    Age: 27
    Height 5'-7"
    Weight 238 lbs (was 253)
    BF% ?? (More than I should have, probably 25% or more)
    ============================================

    I'm looking to get back to the days of when I was a wrestler in HS. I would like to be in the 160-180llb range. I've got a stocky build, and I never really have been considered "skinny" or whatever. Just trying to reverse 27 years of being the fat kid :eat: (lol). As soon as I can get a pic, I'll post it here.

    Looking for similar stats to get going. :tu:

    >> As a follow-up, Robert28 and I are going to start a challenge on August 2nd if anyone else is interested. We are pretty even, except for height, Robert28 is 6" taller than I am. :jumping:

    So if your stats are in our range area, feel free to join in our challenge. You (from today) have 2 weeks and 3 days until "start day" :tucool:

    To all those in challenges, :gl: :flex: :db: :bb: :db: :flex:
