So I've always trained alone, and I like it that way. But today a guy came up to me and proposed being training partners. I've turned down a few but I found myself saying yes this time. I've been unable to do the main lifts for about 8 months due to a lower back injury and he's been unable to cause of shoulder surgery. His lifts were about the same as mine before the injury and were similar in height and weight. Im a bit more nerdy about training/nutrition but he seems to be a hard worker and has been going at it for some time.
My question is this. How do you train with someone without doing the exact same program? Also is this even possible considering he's good to start lifting heavy again and I still have about another month
