Training with a buddy is an integral part of some sporting fields, but there are plenty of great pros when it comes to both training with a mate and going solo.
• Exercising precisely to your own fitness goals and limits could be more beneficial in terms of reaching your goals at your own pace.
• Tailoring your diet, fat burners and supplements to the exact requirements of your workout can offer superb efficiency. E.g. do you like to follow a gym session with a cycle home?
• The exhilaration of solo exercise is incomparable for some people. If exercise, for you, is all about private goals, performance and mental strength, training alone could be the best option.
Two for Training
• Motivation is a huge part of what training together is about. Sure, you’re sticking to your whey protein powder routine and protein drinks, but are you really pushing yourself in the gym? A workout buddy for running, cycling, weight training, climbing – any sport – can motivate you when your inner enemy whispers “You’re tired, why bother today?”
• Sticking to timetables is a lot easier when you’ve made plans to meet someone. That 6AM morning run is tough to drag yourself out of bed for when you’re not meeting a mate to share the experience.
• It doesn’t matter whether you’re fell running, weight training, climbing, playing rugby, boxing or cycling; someone to watch out for you can really be an asset.
