I exercise an 1-2 hours after I’ve been awake. What works for me is an exercise regimen by week. For instance, one week I’ll do the elliptical for 30 minutes and lift some weights and then the next week, I’ll focus on strength training or core training, that way I don’t get SO BORED with either but also I don’t have to decide what random workout to do everyday.
First, I do some basic exercises and stretches to wake up my body. I follow this routine https://youtu.be/epabz6dGapw
It includes planks, downward dog, squats and lunges.
Afterwards, I do a quick 4 minute interval flow:
That gets me going and energized for the day – plus, it gets the fat burning machine started 😉
I usually do lower body workouts like legs, thighs and glutes because that’s just what I want to improve on at the moment
Other days i go for long walks or to play football in the park with my children, so again that's breakfast first. Personally, I find adapting my routine around the needs of my day to be the best way to stick to it. It's different for everyone though. Good luck!
