I tend to train alone and when the gym is almost empty, but sometimes I feel I am missing out on the fellowship of iron. What is your experience, what do you prefer?
Your not missing anything. I prefer an empty gym. Laser like focus and a mindset of I could be anywhere but I'm with the iron.
I train by myself as well. But I do find it sometimes better with a partner - for spotting or motivation.
But you need to find somebody at your level and schedule.
Training in a empty gym is sometimes hard for me and I tend to do less.
