With our typical anti-social selves now augmented with the excuse of COVID, I know most of you train solo. But, here is the thing, you will never reach your full potential unless you are training with somebody else. Preferably with someone with a similar or better physical athletic capability.
It’s nothing about you as an individual it has to do with how we naturally interact with society. As a whole, people not only like to impress those around them, but they also like to establish pecking orders. This is what being competitive is.
The added need to beat somebody is an added push that allows us to focus more, train harder, and force our bodies to adapt to a higher degree.
So, if you can, find someone to train with, even if that’s just one day a week, or bragging to your buddy about your daily lif numbers and run times.
