The Rationale Behind Partner Workouts

Our partner workouts are a sneaky way to say “interval training.” You go hard, you rest and get some recovery and you go hard again. What happens is an adaptation: you are able to work at threshold better. You 90% effort eventually goes from 400 watts on the air bike to 500; your row capacity at 90% increases from 1200 cals/hour to 1350, and so on. Also, your system gets acclimated to recovering more efficiently.

If you decide to do the partner workout solo, you should still perform it with a work:rest ratio. If you don’t, you end up doing steady-state cardio and don’t get the benefit of the adaptations we are trying to create. In this instance, longer isn’t better.

So, grab a partner (and you usually push a little harder with one) and dive in!
