Early Morning Workout

7U1A9105_7191

This morning’s workout came much earlier than usual – 6am! While getting up with my alarm was painful as always, it felt great to have my workout done before 7am.

I have many clients who struggle with getting their workouts in during the day or even at night. By end of day we have a million and one reasons why we shouldn’t go to the gym or even get a quick workout in at home. From being tired, to cooking dinner, to family activities – the excuses just keep adding up. That’s why morning workouts (while sometimes painful to wake up for) tend to be more effective. Other than your alarm, there aren’t as many things standing in your way! Plus, if you workout in the morning you are starting your day off right, boosting your metabolism, and you don’t have to worry about fitting it in later.

Today’s workout…

Warm-Up – 5 minutes walking on treadmill
Foam Rolling – legs/IT bands and Psoas

Squats – 10 (increasing weight each time)
Repeat 4 times

Thrusters – 6 reps
Repeat 4 times

Deadlifts – 5
Bulgarian Split Squats – 10
Jump Rope – 50
Repeat 2 times
