Default Your significant other

Does your significant other workout/exercise/weight train.

If not, does it bother you?

And if they go to the gym with you (or workout with you), is it a pain in the back side?

=> I have a gym in my basement, and my wife works out with me. I have had to implement a no estrogen policy. No hugs. No "I love yous." No talk about "is my butt looking better."

My wife likes to do that sort of thing right in the middle of a heavy deadlift set. We politely talked this through, and I explained why I need no estrogen.

Yes my wife does train, whole family does train (Home Gym) !

I train alone (earlier years I trained with my wife), my wife trains with my eldest daughter (16) who is pretty strong.
She's stronger at Squats than my wife (back squat = 235, front squat = 165, I have vids of her in facebook), same at Deads and weaker at benching than my wife, but the weights match pretty good to train together.
My youngest daughter (12) does train also, mostly with olympic lifts and some other exercises, kick-boxing etc., and alone.

The whole family loves to train, so there isn't any significant problem about, in general.

That's great to hear! My oldest daughter is exploring weights with me (she is 10). I don't push weight training, but I do offer them the opportunity.

Are the videos on Youtube as well?

I try to keep my significant others nude and chained to the treadmills while I'm working out.
