    My wife trains. Sometimes we discuss programming, AFTER she asks me. But we do NOT train together and I do NOT offer unsolicited advices. Absolutely, under no circumstances do I offer comment on her form (its pretty good, she squats deep enough, its what she likes and feels good doing so fuck it). Even if she asks me to comment, like she did on her deadlift form, the other day. I didn't refuse to watch her, I agreed to watch her. And then I said "looks good" and a few similar platitudes. And it did look good. There would've been no point in discussing minutiae with her.

    My wife is a wonderful person, and a great mother. She is a good lifter, too. But I had to learn the hard way not to try and train her. It wasn't pretty.

    I train with my wife and I coach her when asked, which is most of her work sets. It works because I'm not her real coach, just a training partner. Sometimes I disagree with her coach over programming and my opinion counts for exactly bupkis.
