Cool Morning Training Questions

I have some questions about morning training i would like you guys to answer if that's ok.

1: When i wake up, i feel so tired, how do you guys get in the mood to do it? Energy Drinks? Protein?
2: I have my meal, and wait an hour before i do my exercise - Is this ok?
3: Should i just do Cardio in the morning, not strength?

Thanks!

Hey Man,

I can totally relate when it comes to feeling tired in the morning, and not having the motivation to hit the gym. Try a pre-workout supplement, or a coffee, anything with caffeine in it to give you a boost. Depending on your fitness goals, aim for a lower cal, or something that won't stop your heart.

I prefer not to eat before workouts, I usually wait 4 hours to work out post eating. Some people don't like working out on an empty stomach...whatever floats your boat. I workout in the early mornings, so I usually have a big dinner to get me through.

One again, depending on your schedule, in a perfect world, I like to cardio in the mornings then strength in the afternoon. However, I can't do that on routine basis, so I hit strength then light cardio afterwards. Workout usually lasts 90 minutes...

Best of luck

You definitely can't force a solid workout. If you can manage it with your schedule, I would suggest a light workout (cardio and body weight work) in the morning, then your more intense workout later in the day when your body is up and alert. You will see better gains if you workout when you can put more in, and you can cut down on energy drink intake.

You have the highest levels of testosterone in the morning. So BLAST away in the morning. That's the best time to workout, it puts one in a glorious mood!!!!

Get proper sleep, either don't set an alarm or get to bed earlier. If you wake yourself up you won't feel great, if your body wakes you up, you will.
