I have been training for ten years now and found that the greatest supplement to a workout is a partner with the same goals and intensity as yourself. I have had training partners in the past, but none stuck around long. They would usually fade away and stop training.
So I trained by myself for a long time. It wasn’t until I got together with who I train with now that I have seen the greatest gains in strength and mass. It started out as working in with him on squats and grew to aligning our routines on the same days at the same time. Now we are a team. We have broken plateaus that previously exisited and found a new drive to training.
There’s something about having someone there to pump you up and give a quality spot when needed. He has more training in PL, so I have also learned a lot from him about the DL. He’s a strong fucker too, so it’s always a lighthearted match to see who can outlift the other. I have to say that I missed out on quality training without a partner. Just wondering if anyone feels the same way?
