Working out and a nine to five do not tend to go hand in hand.
Trying to get any speck of motivation after a long hard day at the office is about as likely as Tom Hardy finally realising his undying love for me.
Not completely impossible (PAH!) but most likely not to happen.
So today’s all about me sharing my top tips with you, and how to haul your butt outta bed, with my foolproof morning workout routine,
No.1 – Prep to Rep
Having your workout gear ready and waiting for you when you rise is essential. Its really all about organised timings when it comes to working out in the mornings and any part of your getting to the gym routine that can be done the night before will really help to shave down those minutes.
Prep until you cannot prep anymore, then you’re ready!
No. 2 – The Early Bird Catches the Protein Shake
I know how inviting your bed is when it’s cold and dark outside, but getting up when the little birds are singing their morning delights is a routine that eventually your be grateful for.
Just make sure you don’t have an alarm clock that you dread the sound of though!
3 – Pump Yo-self Up
Funny how we can be at our most tiredness just after we’ve had a full nights kip.
I for one always find it a bit of a struggle to motivate myself to open the front door and confront the elements of the morning.
So do what you need to do, to hurl yourself out the front door, whether that’s having a strong coffee, or doing ten jumping jacks. Once your ready and raring to go, the outside world won’t seem quite as unappealing.
4 – Be Smug
You’ve earned it!
Whilst most are snoozing the morning away, you’ve been productive and now no longer have to dread hitting the gym after work, or feeling guilty about eating that three o’clock biscuits.
It really does only take you a few weeks to get your body into the habit of waking early, and you really will be forever grateful for it.
