5 keys to finding a great gym partner
A good workout buddy will help you get the best results from your exercise plan. Itâ€™s easy to ditch the gym when youâ€™re on your own, but itâ€™s a lot harder to blow off a friend whoâ€™s expecting you to show up.
But the trick is finding the right guy for the job. Here are five qualities of the perfect swolemate.
1. Heâ€™s reliable.
Thereâ€™s no use making a bromantic gym date if your partner doesnâ€™t turn up. Pick a friend who wonâ€™t bail on youâ€”or better yet, find someone who will annoyingly text you on leg day to stop you from skipping out.
After all, itâ€™s better to have a barbell on your back than your gym buddy.
2. He knows your style.
A spotter who knows that you like to pause at the bottom of a rep wonâ€™t throw you off by rushing in and grabbing the bar too early.
