Morning Exercises to Jump Start Your Day
Are you a morning person? Adding morning exercises can be a great way to jump start your day!
For a lot of people working a 9 to 5 job, they typically are part of the crowd packing the gyms after the 5:00 evening hour. Instead, consider getting up a half hour earlier to go for a morning jog or hop on your home exercise equipment or even pop in a CD of your favorite workout video.
Your body and mental health will improve much more when you take the time to engage in these morning exercises to jump start your day.
Whether you are getting ready to head out to your normal 9 to 5 job or you plan on staying at home to work, taking care of your family while running your online business, it is imperative that you workout in the morning. By doing so, you will be able to get that boost of energy and blood pumping to get you going in a positive and healthy way.
1. Eat Healthy
The best thing you can do immediately when you get out of bed is drink water. You could even, add lemon juice and some cinnamon to the water. This will kick start your metabolism even before you have breakfast.
Eating right from the get go will help you keep on track. It will also ensure that you do not deviate during the day. As a result, you are more likely to fight the urge to reach out for that bag of chips, or over snacking on donuts or muffins.
2. Sugar and Carbs
These two are your worst enemies. Not only do they work against all the hard exercises you are going to engage in, they will also make it harder for you to lose your love handles and that unsightly spare tire you have been fighting to reduce.
As far as possible, avoid that bagel and all sorts of bread. If possible, consider substituting your sugar with such healthy alternatives as stevia and honey. Your body will really thank you for it.
Most likely, you will feel groggy and tired in the morning. The best way to exercise, is by doing a couple of quick 5 to 10 minutes of exercises. Great options include knee bends, leg lifts and sit-ups.
Both 9 to 5 and stay at home moms or dads will benefit from these exercises. The sit-ups, for instance, will work on your core, strengthen those muscles in your mid-section, fire them up, and ensure that your body continues burning fat during the day.
And should you want another alternative to getting down on the floor, here are 5 favorite core exercises you can do standing up. They are just as effective to building a strong core and those solid abs!
b) Knee Bends
In the same way, knee bends work on a wide variety of muscles all over your legs, knees and core. As a result, they will activate these muscles so that you feel fresher and ready to take on anything that the coming hours will bring to you.
c) Leg Lifts
Leg lifts are also great for working out the core and rear end! Not only are they essential for burning the fat around your midsection, they will also help you get a little closer to that desirable bikini body you have been fighting for.
In conclusion, exercising will ensure that you continue eating healthier, having a fitter body, and fighting the urge to indulge in any unhealthy food. At the end of the day, when you are worn-out from everything you were able to accomplish, you will thank yourself for taking the time to exercise in the morning.
