Training partner debate

I opened up a training partner debate on Facebook today, and asked this question. Using a "good" workout program with a training partner is better than doing a "great" training program on your own. Agree or disagree?

I was surprised that anyone disagreed...So I followed up with...

Ok, so everyone who disagreed about the training partner issue, you're telling me that if you trained with John Romaniello, Jay Ferruggia, or even lil' ol' me as your training partner, that you wouldn't get better results than you would on your own? Seriously?

Kickbutt mindset question to ask yourself:

Will the things you do today help you get where you want to go?

I'm heading to the Freshii restaurant at the Heartland Center today around 1. The mayor will also be there to celebrate Healthy Eating. All meals are $6. I'll be having a veggie burrito and possibly challenging the mayor to feats of strength.

What are the odds that the program would be merely "good" if one of the guys on that list is my training partner?

Hi Craig,

In my opinion it depends on your mind set and your level of knowledge...

But I must agree that with a training partner like you or John Romaniello the results would be much more effective. Results would be better and would appear faster.

A training partner will always boost your motivation during training and never will let you quit or facilate on what your doing.

Of course there's always the question: how much will it cost?
