“I’m tired.” “I will do it tomorrow.” Does this sound like something you have said as it pertains to working out? We get it. It can be hard to stay motivated and work out. That is why we have pulled together some tips to help you rock an early morning workout.

We found an interesting article talking about how to rock an early morning workout. Simply that exercising before breakfast counteracts poor diet and aids weight loss. Also, that fasting forces your body to shed excess fat and it then combats insulin resistance.

The author emphasizes on things such as the following: “Keep in mind that the majority of the “fuel” used during most exercise is not actually coming from the food you have just eaten. If you’re working out at a moderate to high intensity you’re using glycogen and fat that is stored in your muscles, liver, and fat cells. Typically, your body has enough of that stored fuel to last for one to two hours of intense work, or three to four hours at moderate intensity.”

Exercising before breakfast can help prevent weight gain and insulin resistance, even when consuming an excess amount of calories and carbs. Quench your thirst during exercise with pure, clean water only. Sugary drinks such as sports drinks will obliterate many of the most impressive health benefits of your training. If you can’t, or don’t want to exercise on an empty stomach, your ideal breakfast alternative is a high quality whey protein. It will help boost metabolism for as much as 24 hours after your workout and promote healthy insulin secretion. Incorporate high-intensity burst-type exercises like Sprint 8 into your fitness regimen to further maximize fat burning and slow down the aging process.
