Thirty minutes in the morning is about the usual time people can comfortably set aside nearly every day to dedicate towards something to better themselves. What can we really do in such a short amount of time? Is it good to start working out in the morning and how do I start?
These are all the usual questions I hear when people ask me this question. My simple reply is always yes.
Any movement is better than no movement at all. Since it is the very minimal time, it would be better than you do it way more often, maybe around 5-6 times a week.
The Best Morning Workout Routine
The best workout regardless of the time of the day is going to be something that you can ultimately stick to time and time again. If you’re starting out, this might mean just walking for 15 minutes until you are sure that you can keep this routine then add something more challenging.
Making a habit is number one. Remember, any movement is good movement.
Here’s a short routine I designed to focus on hitting major muscle groups with the least amount of time.
Every workout requires a good warmup that will increase the heart rate, body temperature and help all the muscles, tendons and ligaments be prepped for movement. This can take different forms for varying fitness levels, ranging from a brisk walk, jog or light run.
Ideally, we would do this for about 5 minutes, for the sake of time, we will reduce it to about 2.5 minutes.
