    I think you should leave him to it. Fair enough if he wants a better body. It has so many benefits. More attaractive to girls, better strength, more confidence, longer life expectancy etc etc. Its a good thing to get into, or would you rather him smoke some weed in his free time, whilst eating junk and getting a gut on him?
    Don't be an idiot. It's not like if he cuts out an hour of exercising a week to talk to his girlfriend all the benefits of his exercise regime you've listed will be negated.

    Oh so im an idiot for having an opinion?
    You probably dont know anything about exercise of weight lifting.
    If he starts missing workouts it could become habit which isnt good.
    LDR dont really work out in the end anyway.

    As someone who exercises twice a day and spends hours in the gym I'll give you a different view. If you are working all hours god sends you want a bit of me time away from work, the girlfriend, family kids etc. The gym at least for me isn't just about exercise, it's about having a crack with the lads, some of whom I work with or for. It is a man thing. I turn my phone off so it's just me and the iron, I don't want to speak to her or anyone else, whatever is the subject.

    Lots of relationships have failed down to this, the girl likes the novelty but then realises she isn't the most important thing in my life. But really I'm not to fussed because I want a ferrari before I settle down with a serious girlfriend anyways, and I enjoy my lifestyle and really if a girl don't fit into that I don't really care.

    I think if he is as heavily involved with it as Iam unless you develop a healthy interest in gyms you need to become tolerant or find someone else. Very familar conversation this.

    Exactly, if she cant appreciate that her bf wants to improve his body then he should get rid of her. Chances are he hasnt been loyal as its a LDR anyway.

    Exercising every night is bad for you o.O.

    you should get him to post his routine on to the fitness forum here so we can ridicule him. then he will come crying to you and give up exercise for sheer embarrasment.

    I guess thats just his way of relaxing

    just tell him how you feel about this instead of resenting him for it.

    Smart priorities. In the long term, exercise is much better for you than a relationship.
    Well aren't you a barrel of laughs? I bet people queue up to talk to you at parties. :indiff:

    Well, more fool him; personally I can think of nothing more stimulating than a mandatory thirty-minute discussion of my 'day'.

    I don't go to parties. That would waste time I could instead be using to further my education.

    exercise is a very vague term.
    By exercising daily it could simply be 30 mins a day brisk walking, which isnt bad for you in the least.

    hey guys. basically my boyfriend and i are long distance. he works very long hours atm so only has a short period of time where he can talk to me properly like on the phone or msn before he goes to sleep. i'm not a very demanding girlfriend but i'd like to have a proper conversation at least a couple of times a week rather than just survive on a few quick texts that he manages to sneak while he's at work. i understand that in this time he also has to catch up with friends and family and generally just chill. so please don't make me out to be clingy because i'm NOT and i don't need to talk to him constantly.

    but alot of the time, he chooses to exercise for a couple of hours before he goes to bed. occasionally he will call me for the first time in a week for five minutes then say he has to go because he HAS to exercise :confused: when i say he doesn't HAVE to, he gets annoyed and says he does.

    i'm going on holiday at the weekend. and i asked him to occasionally check facebook while im away so we can send messages on there. i'm away for two weeks and would like a bit of contact with him in that time. and his response was weeell. i'll try. but you know, i'm in work all day then i'll need to exercise when i get back. as if exercise takes priority over his girlfriend?? surely he should WANT to talk to me sometimes because, oh you know, he might actually miss his girlfriend? men :mad:
    Don't call him, let him call you.
