    Not what you're asking but...I used to train her.
    But when I did we'd end up fighting 50% of the time. She'd always call me a nazi. After a few months though got the fighting part down to 25% of the time. Still wasn't worth it to me so I just gave her a routine she follows on her own.

    I can see running together being fine, but not doing routines

    don't do it, your probably gonna spend more time giggling and talking than you are actually lifting, and it probably won't be that hard either.

    i do just about every exercise with her.

    deadlifts, cable rows, close press tries, nose breakers, curls, preacher 21's, squats, shoulders, cardio you name it; but with a slight variation of grip and form geared towards women.
    she won't do chest but she'll spot me pretty good on 315.
    so on my chest day she'll do hamstrings.

    :love:

    I tried it with an ex. She wasn't intersted in lifting like I was, and she just ended up being a huge distraction and slowing my workouts to a crawl.

    No thanks. Never agian.

    Does she load and unload the plates for you?

    Someone told me that when Jamie Foxx worked out at Bally's he had this cheerleader hanging out with him load and unload his plates as well as rerack his dumbells for him. Maybe that would make it worth working out with a significant other. ;)

    no.. she trains when I leave for work at 6:30 in the morning.

    we tried once, but she doesnt like working out when the gym is busy as she is self-conscience, and the only time we can train togethor is after I am done work around 5 when the gym is packed.

    she loads and unloads.
    the cool thing about it is that she knows our routine down pat.
    she'll grab plates and place them next to the bench because she knows what weight is needed for whatever exercise we're doing.

    i'm not the one to carry around a journal of some sort of what i lifted the week before so the cool thing about her is that she knows my warmup weight, max weight and burnout weight
    she's the shit!:wiggle:

    My right hand is always there though :love:

    I definitely enjoy my solitude while working out. I wouldn't want to go with him all the time, but I thought it would be nice to go occasionally.

    Didn't work with the ex, doesn't work with the current either. Workouts slow down to a crawl, and all they want to do is work out their flabby arms. So no, not anymore. She takes off and does her thing, and I do mine.

    i won't post pics of her.
    just cause i promised her i wouldn't. :hsugh:

    just to get somewhat of a visual she looks fairly close to eva from top model; just with short dreaded hair, a tad bit thicker on the bottom, smaller tits and 2 couple inches shorter.
