Partner workouts are great. They are basically interval training and I love interval training. Intervals enable you to really give everything you have to the assignment at hand because you know you are going to get a short little rest afterwards. Thus, intervals are great for intensity. Intervals aren’t something that should be done everyday, but I always mix them in a couple times a week. Partners are also great for intensity. Knowing that someone is waiting for you to finish before they can start really gives me an extra boost. Not to mention that having a partner is like having your own personal cheering section. Another bonus of a partner WOD is that correct scaling means you can partner up with anyone, not just someone your own level.
It’s just a lot of fun. Enjoy this one, folks.
