Back Story: I lift three times a week with my wife... We've worked through Starting Strength over the last few years ... moving from the standard linear progression to a variant of the Texas Method for the last year (for variety and LP was getting a bit much for recovery). Both of us have ok numbers ~2x BW Deadlift, 1.5x Squat etc
Neither of us are looking to get massive, just stay strong and fit. This year our goal is to be more rounded and get aerobically fitter and a bit more explosive again. In the past I've been a competitive endurance athlete, and while I'll never get back to the same level while strength training I'd like to get back to being solid, rather than puffing up hills like today.
We both run / cycle / do 'stuff' beyond our strength training so not too worried about adding more conditioning work in the gym itself.
We are both on our way towards 40 so managing fatigue can be an issue sometimes.
Problem: Our gym is tiny, and like most people we are time crunched in the morning. We're figuring out how to juggle our time in the gym, in particular the EMOM. Typically to date we take it in turns with our lifts and that gives enough between set recovery, but that's not practical for 10 to 15min sets of EMOM. Also we like doing Squat, Dead, Bench, Press and Row for balance - 5 lifts and not enough days in the week...
Possible Solution ?: Mondays we do both squat sets and EMOMs - The other days we do two lift sets and alternate the EMOM sets - that means one person can use the rack and the other can use the floor space to double up.
SQUAT SETS - SQUAT EMOM
DEADLIFT and BENCH SETS - DEAD/BENCH EMOM (Alternate Weeks - One person does one, the other does the other)
PRESS and ROW SETS - PRESS/ROW EMOM (Alternate Weeks - One person does one, the other does the other)
