Just noticed you and your wife workout at the same time. Mine works out at at the same times I do. She does lifts one day and cardio the next. Both days she ignores my advise. Your workouts are looking great.

It was a long road to get her to start listening to me. First I told her the basics. Of course she doesn’t believe me, then gets a trainer. Trainer echos everything I’ve told her. Then finally I told her to save the money and just let me train her.

Flat DB Press: 50’s x 11, 60’s x 8, 70’s x 4, 80’s x 4, 90’s x 3, 100’s x 7, 100’s x 7, 90’s x 9

She listens to me now, somebody pinch me.

Jeez - if only that’d worked for the missus and me.
