4. An Idea Generator
Sure, you might be on some serious, rigid program to add more size or become the strongest man in the room, but after a while, repeating the exact same routine day-in and day-out gets boring. Plus, it can eventually cause your results to plateau. A good training partner should bring new ideas to the table to help keep things interesting and effective. My training partner and I swap ideas before and during each one of our workouts. One week he might be responsible for developing our upper body workout while I handle the lower body, and then we switch. Whether it’s suggesting new exercises, different finishers, or a variety of combinations, look for someone who can bring some creativity to the training floor and you’ll be golden.
