Training Buddy by Skype?

My gym set-up in my garage is getting pretty good. That’ll be the subject of a different post, but one of the things I’ve put there is a laptop with an internet connection: it lets me listen to music or have the TV on, or whatever.

But it struck me, if I can do video conferences at work, why shouldn’t I have a training buddy via Skype to my garage. They wouldn’t be much help as a spotter :frowning: but in most other respects, I reckon it could work, provided you could match up training schedules/timezones.

Anyone tried this? Anyone want to try this?

This is one of the gayest ideas I’ve ever heard. Unless you’re talking about training with Cbear.

Training with Cbear… Mmmmm.

No.

I’ll do it!! Any time let me know bruh. I’m doing legs next time. Hope you don’t mind that when I lift alone. I have some small rituals I do. I like to gag myself and wear a leopard skin thong when doing squats. While covered in baby oil as Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls just want to have fun” plays in the background for some “pump me up” music . Ok we’ll set it up. Hows Tuesday evening for you say 6ish? k pumpkin I’ll ttyl toodle loo

LOL. Guess that’s a fail, then. Reclusive gits.

In this case just do p90x.

For real, I don’t think it is really such a terrible idea.
I might consider doing this with my brother.
