A lot of people claim that you will get much better results if you workout in the morning. Others say it doesn’t make one bit of difference what time of day you train and that the end result will always be the same.
Although this is up for debate, there are many other reasons why I try to train in the mornings rather than the evenings. I admit that getting up early to fit a gym session in before work can be challenging, especially if you haven’t had enough sleep. However I workout in the mornings for the following reasons below.
No Waiting For Gym Equipment
I hate standing around waiting for people to finish using weights and machines that I want to use. At peak times, most gyms get packed. A workout that should only take you 45 minutes could end up taking you a lot longer, due to the fact that you are wasting valuable time standing around waiting.
If you go early in the morning, you will share more space and equipment with a few like minded people. You will also be able to have a more intense workout due to the reduced waiting times.
You Become More Consistent
When I used to plan my training sessions after work, I would often find myself not going to the gym. This is because other things end up getting in the way, for example, working late, getting invited out for drinks etc.
If you train in the morning, you complete your workout before the day has even really begun, leaving you lots of free time for the rest of the day to do other things.
Gives You Energy
Exercising early in the morning releases endorphins and other hormones that give you an energy boost that should last all day.
You Clear Your Head
If you have a lot on your mind then training in the morning will help to clear your head and give you a healthy mindset. Exercise also helps reduce stress so doing it in the morning will help reduce the chances of you getting stressed throughout the day.
You Increase Your Metabolism
When you exercise, your resting metabolic rate increases meaning you will be burning more calories throughout the day whilst you’re resting (this is especially handy if you have a desk job).
Makes You More Alert
You may have noticed that after a workout you feel more alert. This is due to the increased flow of oxygen to the brain. If you train in the morning you will be better prepared for whatever challenges you face throughout the day.
Getting out of bed in the morning to go for a workout requires a great deal of discipline. If you discipline yourself to get up in the morning and exercise you can improve your quality of life.
You Sleep Better
When you workout regularly you will experience better sleeping patterns and sleep quality. Your body will tell you when it’s time for bed. You will also be more motivated to go to bed if you know that you have to get up in the morning for training.
Sleeping is very important to give your body the time and rest it needs to recuperate and build muscle.
Controls Your Appetite
Training in the morning will help you control your appetite throughout the day. Your meal times will become like clockwork and you will be less likely to binge on junk food.
Improves Your Diet
If you train in the morning you will eat better throughout the day. You will need to feed your body with the proper nutrients that your body needs and you will find yourself craving for healthier foods. You will also find yourself becoming more reluctant to eat junk food due to the hard work you put in during your morning workout.
If you want to build lean muscle and lose body fat then you need to read Mike Geary’s The Truth About Six Pack Abs Program. I spent years following fitness programs, trying to gain lean muscle and lose body fat, but none of them seemed to work. Don’t waste your time! Want a programme that works? Then you definitely need to try The Truth About Six Pack Abs Program. I literally striped the body fat and gained lean muscle in the first month of trying his program and I was only using his beginner’s workout routine. Mike is currently offering a Risk-Free $4.95 trail, so you can try now and decide later
Have I convinced you yet? If so, good. However expect an adjustment period. It usually takes three weeks for your body to fully adjust to the time change. I get up at 5:30am every morning. When I first started getting up at this time I felt tired and drained. However after a few weeks, I started to feel more energised and alert.
Now all you need to do is set your alarm to help you get up those first few weeks. Before you know it you will be lean and ripped.
