I am trying to figure out how to calculate the amount of work done for two people of differing sizes (160lb man which is me and 200lb man) in reference to varying exercises we do in the gym.
All this to see which person is in fact doing more workload per pound. I have ideas, but don't know where to start.
For example, if he and I do a clean and press workout at 50% of body weight and both do the same amount of reps in one minute, did we both do equal work?
Additionally, if we both do box jumps, and I do 25 of them at 20 inches high, and he does 20 of them at 20 inches high, same amount of time, are we doing the same work?
Third, pull-ups. If I do 20 pull ups (160lb man) and he does 16 (200lb man), is that the same amount of work, assuming same time they are done in?
Last of all, running. How in the world can we determine who is doing more work when calculating one mile run times? Any help would be appreciated, as I didn't study this in school. It is very intriguing to us to get the science of this so we can determine who is in fact does more work in each exercise.
