No, it would be nice to have a training partner some times, but I really enjoy training by myself.
Typical training week?
4-5 days Include ie My training depends on my competition schedule, I have no set routine as I find that most of the time I train instinctively and that also varies according to which body parts that I want to improve. Reps, exercises, I ask the opinions of people I respect in the sport and follow the good advice.
Any techniques used.
