We all know the importance of eating a well-balanced breakfast to start the day. Research also shows that a quick work-out after you wake up can boost energy levels and increase blood flow to last the entire day. Check out these work-out tips that you can try to start your day off right!
Running or Walking
Running or walking continues to be one of the best ways to exercise. It increases your heart rate which improves blood flow and oxygen levels across the body. The best part is that you do not need to walk or run for very long. Only 15-45 minutes at a brisk pace is all you need before jumping in the shower. An added benefit is that HHHunt Communities offers sidewalks in all master-planned communities, so you don’t have to worry about cars!
Pushups are a great way to build muscle strength. However, according to Men’s Health, many people do them the wrong way. Pushups are all about exercising multiple muscles in your body – which is why you should always add an element of instability. This ensures you are getting the most out of this valuable exercise. There are four different types of pushups you can try: Hands-Elevated Pushups, Iso Pushup Hold, Lateral Walk Pushups, and Shoulder Tap Pushups.
Legs and Glutes Workouts
When exercising, it is important to stay proportional. Never exercise just one part of your body. That is why Good Housekeeping put together some quick workout ideas for your legs and glutes. Exercises like squats, lunges, glute bridges, step ups, and wall sits are simple ways to build up core strength while providing your lower body with a complete workout.
Working out in the morning has a lot of benefits when done correctly. This article from Bodybuilding.com offers specific tips to make your workout as productive as possible. One of the big takeaways is that working out in the morning does not need to take long. 15 minutes can make a world of difference as you start your day.
