How To Make Getting Up For Early Morning Workouts Easier

Planning an early morning workout but nervous about whether you’ll actually be able to get yourself out of bed to do it?

This is quite a common concern among many people and if you utilise a few key strategies, the concern can be quickly overcome.

Early morning workouts are a great thing to have in place because those who work out first thing in the morning are far more likely to stick with it over the long-haul.

Let’s take a quick peak at how you can go about making these workouts far easier to get to.

Set Two Alarms

The first technique to use is to set two alarm clocks, one by your bed and one that’s off in the distance.  Have the one by your bed go off first and the other go off second. This way, by the time the second does go off, you’ll have to get out of bed to turn it off and once you’re up, chances are you’ll stay up.

Lay Out Your Clothes The Night Before

Next, make sure that you lay out your workout clothes the night before , as this will help ensure that you are fully prepared for the workout you’re about to do and aren’t going to have to put in much effort to get to the gym in the first place.

Pack a gym bag and put it in your car if you have to. Anything to make going to the gym less effort will help.

Plan A Good Pre-Workout Snack

Last but not least, consider planning a good pre-workout snack. Even though you’re working out first thing in the morning, it is still going to be important that you’re fueling your body well and a good pre-workout snack will do just that.

Have a small protein shake with a banana or a slice of toast with a few scrambled eggs. You want to keep it light enough that you don’t start to cramp up, but there still must be both protein and carbs in the snack.

So keep these quick tips in mind as you go about staying committed to those early morning workout sessions.  If you use them, you should find that doing these workouts is much less of a hassle than you first thought and you may just get hooked on them permanently.
