The first peaks of light that enter my eyes in the morning are always accompanied by a groggy muffled sound, which is a call out to me beloved coffee pot ordering it to start brewing. A typical morning for me includes on the water used to brew my coffee, very few stretches, and absolutely no workout.
Autumn is a time of change, so why not change my morning routine just a little.
The worse possibly thing that can happen is I learn it's not for me and I go back to what my routine was before.
Wake Up To Water First
Instead of sipping on coffee first thing in the morning. I have made the switch over to 16oz of water. While it is not cozy and warm, it is cool and refreshing.
Stretch Out The Sleep
While I am drinking down my 16ozs of cold water. I like to multitask and stretch for a few minutes. I stretch for 10 minuets minimum, but if it feels right and I have the time to spare. I'll happily stretch for a good 30 minuets.
Warming Up For The Day
My morning workout is not by any means anything crazy or complex. It is simply and easy to execute at home workout. I enjoy it because it helps energizingly wake myself up without tiering my out so much so that I want to crawl back into bed.
20 seconds of High Knees with a 10 second break
(Repeat 3-6 times)
20 Squats squeezing for 2 seconds at the top
(Repeat 5 times)
10 Push Ups
(Repeat 5 times)
45 Second Planks
(Repeat 5-10 Times)
While some mornings I have more energy and can accomplish much more. Changing out and/or including different set, reps, or exercises. For the most part this is what a morning workout for myself looks like.
Wake Up, Stretch, And Work Out!
