You know the score. Your alarm goes off and your brain tells you to play the snooze game. Next thing you know, half an hour has passed and you’ve missed your morning workout time.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Once you get into a routine, you can train yourself to love a morning workout.
From glute-strengthening jumping lunges to the ultimate body-bettering burpees, this quick workout requires zero equipment. All you need to do is have your gym gear ready when you get out of bed and stay clear of that snooze button.
If you still struggle to get revved up for an AM sweat-a-ton, try eating a spoonful of unsweetened almond butter before you go to sleep to avoid low-blood-sugar-grogginess.
This 10-minute routine can be squeezed in before work, getting you pumped and feeling accomplished for the rest of the day. Sharper, more focused, with a revved up metabolism. Start your day the right way with this full-body do-anywhere morning energizer.
MORNING WORKOUT SET UP
Make sure you have a timer, stopwatch, or interval training app handy. If you have an exercise mat, throw it down and get started.
Warm up by running on the spot and performing some stretches, such as shoulder circles, to rev up your body. Work through this complete circuit and repeat once.
For each move in this morning workout, we’ll be working at a moderate to high intensity for 60 seconds, then resting for 20 seconds:
- DEEP SQUATS
- MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS
- BUTT KICKS
- STAR JUMPS
- JUMPING LUNGES
