    My GF and her female partner having been working out for the past 9 or 10 months together. I must say my GF has made a lot of progress to her over all body toned. Especially her legs and butt. On occasion I join them at the gym but usually do a separate work out for the most part. I find they can be a bit distracting lol. They like to wear tight outfits or tight short shorts. Both have awesome looking legs. I have a huge upper body strength advantage on them but now my GF has stronger legs (not the case a year ago). They got me to do this lunge walk with them and I could not keep up with the distance using their amount of weights. Both could complete the distance for 5 sets. I could almost complete it once but only got half way on the third and packed it in lol. I felt a bit silly and weak being the man and a guy with a pretty strong and built upper body. My legs could not keep up with theirs. They would smile and kid with me about this so but I was feeling a bit embarrassed. I am wondering what they are really thinking now and if it make me less attractive in their minds. How do women generally feel if they can out do their man at thing involving physical strength and endurance?

    Captain Top-half, welcome to the Den!

    If you're a woman in a same sex relationship, nothing to be embarrassed about. If you're a male and the women are outperforming you, get under a bar and squat!

    I was stronger than my ex, but he also sat down to pee.

    My wife can out swim and beat me in any kind of distance run. I smoke her in a sprint.

    She was a national level competitive swimmer, and I doggie paddle. I also can't be bothered to run from my truck to the gym entrance in the rain, so she can have the distance runs and swims.

    If she ever beat me at anything strength wise, you might find me doing the Robin Williams in my bathroom.

    You don't call her in the room to kill spiders for you, right?

    Dude, you might want to invest in a pair of workout pants. Zubaz are not the way to go.

    Looks like she has greater endurance than you do for the walking lunges. Further, those exercises take a lot of balance, and you may have been spending a lot of your energy on your core trying not to fall. I would simply stick with that exercise and work on your form until your balance improves. Plus walking lunges incorporate your own weight on top of the weight you're holding. So me holding 20 pounds DBs while my wife holds 20s is not exactly the same thing, as I outweigh her by about 100 pounds.

    On a side note, good to hear your GF is lifting.
