TEXAS TAG TEAM

Branch Warren and Johnnie Jackson have been training partners off and on for years. Hitting chest and biceps, their pace was as relentless as a bucking bull’s. When one finished a set, the other started his, racked it, unracked it, without pause, and all while moving prodigious weights, including 405-pound incline presses (for six reps) and 100-pound hammer curls (for seven reps). They cranked out 250-pound pulldowns (for 12) and 200-pound onearm dumbbell rows (for 10) along with machine T-bar rows, seated cable rows, and chin-ups, all of it at their usual I’ll-rest-when-I’m-dead pace. As soon as Branch is done, I’m ready to jump in there because it’s so motivating watching him,” Jackson said, “and then vice versa when I’m going and he wants to get at it. When each of us is going the other is thinking, ‘I can do that too’ or, usually, ‘I can do more.’ ”
