How To Become A Morning Exerciser
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Whilst most people want to spend their mornings in bed, becoming a morning exerciser is a great way to schedule and maintain your training around a hectic lifestyle. There are also a number of other benefits which arise from working out in the mornings. For starters, training in the morning kick-starts your metabolism, meaning it is burning calories from the beginning of the day until the end.

Becoming a morning exerciser can seem a daunting and difficult task at the out-set. However, by following the simple steps below your body and mind will adjust and training in the morning will feel like the most natural thing in the world!

Preparation is key to the morning exerciser. By preparing your training clothes, gym bag and refreshments the night before you are making a commitment to train. Better still, if you are working out with a training partner, schedule a meeting time and place which must be kept to. The morning exerciser must eliminate as many factors as possible which may lead to them thinking it is easier to stay in bed than to go and exercise.

Mindset also plays a massive part in morning exercise. Never go to bed with the mindset of “Ill see how I feel in the morning”. The key is to go to sleep thinking “I will be working out in the morning no matter what!”. A morning exerciser should also always have a positive spin on their training. For example, if a mindset of ‘Im not getting enough sleep’is maintained then their instinct will tell them to stay in bed longer. Alternatively if thoughts such as ‘I wont have to workout after a long day at the office’ or ‘I get to spend more time with my family in the evening’ are actively encouraged, exercising in the morning will become an attractive option.

Variety should be incorporated into your morning exercises. Boredom will arise from doing any activity the same way day after day, and exercising in the morning is no different. The morning exerciser must regularly change their workouts, set training goals, take part in fitness challenges and generally move things around. Subtle changes such as adding a new playlist to your i-pod or changing your workout clothes can also have a short-term impact and add some variety. The key is to make a change immediately if you feel your training is going stale.

Diet is important to the morning exerciser. You will need to be fuelled for your work-out , but time is not on your side with regard to eating. Ideally aim to be eating fast-release carbohydrates as soon as you get up. This will allow you to train shortly afterwards without feeling ‘bloated’ and with good energy levels. Again, preparation of what you intend to eat for breakfast should be conducted the night before.

Time to adapt is vital to the morning exerciser. The first week will be the most difficult, but stick at it and as the weeks go by you will be surprised at how natural your new get up time feels.
