Can he work the program? Sure, thats the easy part, but thats not really the question that you need to be concerned with. Does he want to work this program? Thats the question.
Two people with different viewpoints on how to train will have a bit of a hurdle to step over.
The next aspect is one of personality's. Can you two work together, and have productive workouts? Thats the bigger issue as I see it. I generally prefer to lift alone, but have in the past had a few very good workout partners.
Even if your not at the same spot as far as how much weight you lift, you can still work together if the other aspects are right. A good workout partner is not unlike a marriage. It takes a committment from both people for it to work.
