Safety in the Gym
I lost my workout partner, i live in a remote town in northern canada, and I haven't been able to find another person interested in weight training.
Are there any resources available that would show how to train effectively, without the assistance of a training partner/buddy?
Also, any thoughts anyone has on maintaining individual motivation and goals without having a training buddy to kickstart you when you need it would be helpful.
Love the site.
I've sound this site to be good as far as mechanics of the exersices: http://www.exrx.net/Lists/Directory.html I've kept a log to help track my progress and a journal on the site to get input and motivation from the members.
A power rack is the best spotter you'll ever have. You'll also be able to get through workouts much faster. Training without a partner is a plus, in my book.
