My point was this.
At home, you can get crazy and get alot accomplished without a training partner.
At the gym, there are so many distractions, you can barely get a decent workout. Maybe your partner at the gym can help you stay focused. Seriously, I can't be listening to Celine Dion and Brittney Spears at the gym and try going ballistic to that shit. Worse than that, they got the foom full of fatasses doing step-aerobics with all that electronic techno noise thumping in my head. Not to mention the 35 high schoolers bumping into me every 5 seconds looking for tips because i happen to have a build that they so desire. Seriously, try doing a a heavy back squat with 5RM weight on there, with "papa don't preach" on the loudspeaker and some 17 year old newbie waiting for you to finish so he can get a tip on how to train his chest or peak his biceps.
I'm outta my elements with a training partner or trying to get a workout at the gym.
Maybe its just me.
