lol I have my bachelor's degree in music, I studied classical for 4 years. The problem is that you don't know which composers to go to when you're lifting heavy. Lots of Beethoven symphonies and quartets are incredible for lifting and motivation.
Might have to download some Beethoven and give it a whirl!Originally Posted by GreenEarth
Id kill to have a good dedicated training partner. Im solo. Been that way since october. Not having a spotter to really push failure inhibits gains to an extent. I find my self doing less compounds and more isolation because, lets be honest, pushing bench weather it be 170lb bells or 365-400 with out a spot is down right dangerous. Getting that extra youve got another is motivation as well.

I workout solo (with headphones cranked up)most of the time other than those times I need a spot. I do occasionally do some tire flipping or heavy deads with a partner just to provide some competition.
I've been working out solo for the last year... I get my workout done a lot faster!
I have a training partner but lately been solo. When he's around I love kicking his ass. I push him to the brink set after set. Haha he hates me most days!Originally Posted by StackedCop
generally, alone. but my friend is pretty no bull****, so hes good.
I like training by myself,but there are workouts where a spotter/motivator is nice have
If your partner is a motivator it seems to really help me kick it to another gear.Originally Posted by diezel
I prefer to work out by myself. I have not trained with a partner in over 10 years.
My buddy is on vacation so I worked out by myself today for the first time in a good while. Brought the Ipod along and rocked out. It felt good.
i work out by myself right now. i like it because i can listen to my music and not talk to anyone. it keeps me focused. i would love a training partner if he is the type of person that is serious and wants to give 100 percent every time like i do. the people like that at my gym all have training partners already it seems. its like women lol most of the good ones are taken.
