The great outdoors is often the best place to get a great workout first thing in the morning. Get the heart pumping, endorphins flowing and awaken the mind – it sounds like a rather grand way to start the day don’t you think? Whilst it might feel like a great idea 10PM the night before and not such a good one at 6AM the morning after you will feel good for it once you roll out of the sack and do it. With that said, here are 3 stellar morning routines for you to try. All are going to help kick-start the fat burning furnace for the next 24 hours!
One of the ultimate ‘’beasting’’ sessions any human can endure is a spot of hill sprinting. You will need no longer than 10-15 minutes, after 5 it will feel like it’s been half a day! However, they are ideal for those short on time and in need of a quick fix to making the fat shift.
Try sprinting uphill for 10 seconds, walking back down, resting for 45 seconds and repeat continuously. It’s a tough drag, build up your stamina gradually over a period of weeks. You won’t need to do this more than once or twice a week.
Fast Walking With A Twist
Fasted walking before breakfast is a fan favourite among the fitness community and with a myriad of benefits it is easy to see why. It is also a slightly less strenuous, enjoyable form of exercises to start the day than the gruelling alternative above. However, we want to throw a small curve ball at you. During your 20-30 minute power walk add in 3-4 evenly spaced out 30 second sprints! That’s all. The difference this will make will be apparent upon your return to the house when your top is stuck to your back!!
Strong Man Stuff
If you have ever watched strong men train you will know they aren’t overly fussy on the objects they use. Tractor tires, beer caskets, barrels, cars and the likes of. Sure, you won’t be using the same weight as them but look around your local environment and see what kind of circuits you can come up with. The rules are simple, perform each exercises for 30 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, do a total of 8-10 exercises in the circuit then rest for 2 minutes. Repeat this circuit 2-3 times!
There are several ways you can use to start the way with a bang!
