The case for morning workout
Fri, 09-21-2012 - 12:38pm

Morning is the best time to exercise for me.

I run in the morning and feel great the whole day. I think I can say that I am “energized” for the day.  It's a good time to think clearly, plan my day, and relax mentally.

Starting the morning with running, before other distractions can intrude, is my best fitness habit. It assures that something else won't crowd exercise out of my schedule. When my days get hectic, exercise is likely to take a back seat.

And for those who are less motivated, if you exercise in the morning, it helps you to stick with it.

This made me laugh because I am soooooo not a morning person, and this week, because I was traveling on business with others, I had to workout in the morning...I did it four of the five days but if I had to do it every day, it wouldn't happen. I am sore ant tight in the morning, plus I just have trouble focusing...all I had to do was get dressed and go downstairs in the hotel to get to the gym, and I had to Ali myself through it. Fortunately, the cardio warmup was mindless so I could wake up a little...I am an end of day exerciser, and I like finishing my day at the gym..even if the rest of the day seemed useless, I accomplished something...I do not know how mothers get themselves and their kids dressed and out the door in the morning...I can barely manage me some days...

Light 10min morning exercise is best. Not only does it kickstart your metabolism, but it wakes you up and gets those endorphins flowing.
