Now, let me preface this post by saying it is just a suggestion. And it is a suggestion that I don’t take but I’ll explain why later.
Many people, especially those who are just getting back to developing a workout regiment, would benefit greatly from having a workout partner. Having someone to hold you accountable is key to the ability to push yourself to new levels.
In addition, it is a great practice when it comes to safety. I do not workout with a partner usually because I workout on my lunch break and no one I’m comfortable working out with lifts at the same time daily. Let’s just say that yesterday’s session wasn’t as safe as it should have been and I had a small weight room faux pas. It wouldn’t have ever happened if I’d had a partner.
So, for accountability and safety reasons, I strongly suggest getting a partner, especially if it works with your schedule. Sadly, it doesn’t for mine at this point. But maybe one day.
Make your health a priority.
