But for my standard lifting schedule, I prefer to lift alone. Less distraction, less time wasted, less criticism to give and take.
Feel that same exact way. Although i do train with a crew, and we all compete so it's a lot easier to get work done without the external stimuli.
But somedays i end up training alone and i try to take full advantage...
