Throwing the Weights Around

Mike Haydon:

Just worked out with my brother Dave Haydon at the gym in my spare room. Wow, that was intense. We went for the overall body workout:

Exercise Reps Sets
Squats x15 x3
Bench x15 x3
Deadlift x15 x3
Upright Row x15 x3
Military Press x15 x3

Doesn’t look much when you put it to paper, but sure felt it afterward! The final set of each exercise was done to failure, so it was a bit over 15 for the final. The rest between each set was the time it took the other to do their set. I lost count on the second set of squats while Dave talked about the stock market and ended up doing probably around 30 squats that set.

IMO, it’s a great idea to train with a partner. You give each other the motivation to train. Dave & I have been training together twice per week for a couple of months now. He injured his knee not too long ago, so he wasn’t able to do legwork, but that’s all fine now.
