I have trained for my initial one year alone and did not see much gain. But had the opportunity to train with a friend for few months. In these few months I learned to lift heavier weights with good form and push myself further like never before. This helped me gain weight and also some shape in short period of time.
Now I am back training alone for the past few months, I do push myself now and then. But not frequently as much as before.
Could you provide some suggestions/tips to help me motivate myself to keep pushing myself at every rep in every set in every session.
Good upbeat music seems to help. I am unable to find a partner at the moment. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
