You also gotta remember some people may be taking things like creatine and protien powders to help aid their lifting.

I could probablyy only do the weight lifting competition. My mile time is 6:40 and I don't have enough weight to lose. I don't realy see myself getting a huge improvement on my mile, but my lift weight has gone down a few pounds.

How about this...we have two categories for each competition: Best improvement and best overall. That way those of us who are already in shape or naturally gifted athletes have something to actually shoot for.

As far as competitions:

Best 10 rep bench press
How many times one can squat with 225
Pull ups
Push ups
Logest distance doing lunges
Mile, 5k, 10k time
Body fat percentage
Resting heart rate
Best aesthetic appearence
Some other cardio exercises? I can't think of any others besides swimming, and that just wouldn't be fair for yall :P

And what is to keep people from cheating?

Either way, I will probably be in.  I have been progressively getting fatter and I really need to loose it.

What about age groups? Because like a 13 year old for instance against a 25 year old obviously has no shot.

Well duh, anybody that is serious about it will most likely use some form of a supplement, namely protein shakes or weight gainers.

I like this a lot. These should be the categories, and if anyone feels the need to refine them, then put up your ideas.

As for proof...

I'd like it to be on your honor, because I doubt anyone is going to want to watch a few hours worth of video of forumers working out to authenticate anything.

For aesthetic appearance, that can be judged.

For a time frame: 6 months, with first "weigh-in" on new year's day. It gives us all ample time to plan an exercise schedule/eating plan, get used to said exercise schedules/eating plans, and gives us the time to get all the initial measurements of performance in each category.

Because of the ubiquity of that, I'd say it's fair. But steroids are out of the question (users tend to have muscular manboobs and the huge gain in muscle mass makes their heads look shrunken)

Theres also plenty of people who take pride in not using any of those, and just eat right.
