I agree kudos, let's see the pictures. Everyone on this forum has seen my body. You're just a faceless prick on an internet forum so far.

be able to perform reasonable daily tasks without getting out of breath, have a good resting and exercising heart rate, reasonable blood pressure excluding genetic factors, and be able to lift 100 pounds.

In day to day life, being able to squat a certain amount doesnt help you much unless you're lifting boxes every day or something.

I also think you're on to something important as well. Many people can exert themselves to meet a requirement, but if you're just fucking blitzed after it, I wouldn't consider that in shape.

However, where I think you're wrong is the squat issue. Lifts like that translate into far more things than just lifting boxes.

I would consider a person to be "in shape" if they can do all of the following as a basic test:

- Run at least 2 miles at a 7 minute pace (or better)
- Bench press body weight
- Squat body weight
- Deadlift body weight
- 40 pushups without pause
- 10 strict form pullups

What's your criteria?

This is a tough list. I guess I am not in shape...

you're under the impression I give a shit what you think. I don't need to post my picture because I have no need to try and impress nor justify myself to some vain gaids(i just made that word up, you can use it) looking guy on a forum.

You prove mine every time a thread like this is made. It draws you in like flies on shit. It's clockwork.

Hey man, all I know is you like to bust my balls. Which is cool, you just seem to be a worthless piece of shit that has no respect for himself. Whatever it takes to cheer you up.

Honestly I wouldn't let it get you down. Fitness means different things to different people. For instance, I need to be able to take hit after hit from rugby and still be effective. That sort of shit doesn't matter to most other folks.

Just my opinion based on my own performance, which isn't spectacular. What's your train of thought?

2 miles? 3 miles at an 8 minute pace would be more appropriate

Yeesh, I wouldn't attempt that, don't think I ever will. A 5K fast is perfectly fine for me, as long as I can perform decently on a soccer field without screwing up my knee further I'm A-OK

Yeah, she's training for the NYC Marathon. Sometimes her running partner craps out, and guess who is the fucking stand-in? Talk about agony.
