The third group worked out with a single partner and was told that the results of their test were based on the partner with the weaker performance.
Before we get to the results, it is important to note that the partner was virtual as Pudgy Buddy partners will be. The participants Skyped with a partner and could see them exercising via a computer screen at the same time.
In the end, solo riders made it an average of 10.6 minutes on the bike before stopping.
Group two, the ones that rode with a partner on screen, went on for an average of 19.8 minutes. That’s an 87% difference. Imagine how much better your performance would be if you always exercised at a rate that much higher than you do now.
The third group was on the bike for an average of 21.9 minutes, an improvement just over double than going it alone. These results speak for themselves and is the foundation for success at Pudgy Buddy.
A recent study by the Society of Behavioural Medicine took a look at the effects of training with a partner on your cardio work.
The participants in the study were divided into three groups that rode an exercise bike at a given percentage of their heart rate for time.
The first group was a control, and they exercised alone.
The second worked out with a single partner.
