For the next 6 months, we shall be involved in a fitness competition.

The objectives and divisions are being worked on.

There wont be any judges or anything (except in the aesthetic part), because the measurements will be qualitative.

Traineo can help you log your efforts.

You can start preparing now, but the first weigh-in (official start of the competition) will be on January 1st. Get your weight, running times, lifting ability, etc (depending on categories you wish to compete in), in on that date.

If we use Traineo, I propose we use forumers in the competition as our "motivators."

It's probably not a bad idea to require it. At the very least it'll standardize calculation of BMI and record progress.

I think I'm in.  I've lost 14 pounds in the last 4 or 5 weeks, so hopefully I can keep going.

I'm in, but I don't really need to lose much weight right now. I really just
need to bulk up a bit.

Pumpker'd; (V.) When a pump player runs up and shoots you at point blank range because you thought 20bps made you good.

Which is why I posted different categories.

Post whatever you want when the time comes, and anything you put will be entered (whether you intend in competing in the categories or not).

An idea I had for measuring strength increase is weight lifted (in specific ways) over BMI.

The different categories allow for different types of people to get involved.
If you see a better way to measure progress, then say so.


And yes, the out of shapers will probably win most catagories. This is more to motivate us than it is for the people that already have healthy body weights.

For the people who consider themselves in shape, you can compete for fastest runner or other things along those lines.

Yeah, BMI has severe limitations. Those of us who are in some way athletic will have flawed BMIs indications due to BMI's assumptions about propotions of muscle, bone, and fat in a normal person. I'm a distance runner, for instance, so my legs have quite a lot of muscle and skew the BMI.

A couple measurements that may be of use for cardiovascular:

Timed Mile
Timed 5km
Timed 10km


I did my 5km in 22 minutes and a few seconds... Haven't timed myself on the other two recently.

I'd be down for the lifting, but my shoulder is pretty much busted to hell.

Longest endurance?  Who can run/walk/jog the longest before collapsing?

I planned to start doing stuff for other reasons anyway, so I'm in.
