Daily Morning Routine

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by free_Bassd, Aug 2, 2012.

  1. I've been working out lately, for the past four months or so, and I've started seeing some results that I would like to make permanent. I know staying away from alcohol and fast food is key. I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing, I just want to add maybe some stretches and some sit up/ push up stuff type of stuff in the morning. so what's your morning routine?

    A good 20 minute cardio exercise first thing in the morning can definitely help you shed some lbs with ease. Doesn't matter what it is (jogging, jump roping, jumping jacks, etc...) so long as you do it.

    Sleep til 11, get up and go sleep on the couch til noon, eat lunch, sit around all afternoon...

    Or, during training season: get up at 9, run 12 miles, get home, sit around all afternoon...

    I did a 25 minute walk on the treadmill at the club yesterday- 2.5MPH with the incline set to 11 (don't know if it's degrees or %, but I sweated my ass off). I definitely felt it this morning- not sore, but my legs & stuff felt more toned. This AM, I went down to the lakefront to climb the stairs- Up/down/up, then over to the corner sidewalk and down to the bottom, back up the hill (8 total passes- 4 up/4 down, all on the hill) and then back to the stairs to go down/up/down before leaving. When I go up the stairs, I take them two at a time and one at a time on the way down. I feel that walking on flat surfaces is basically a waste of time, so I try to use hills all the time.

    This stuff is addictive! I think I'm going to walk every day at the club if the weather sucks or outside if it doesn't. My weight loss seems to be stuck at -30 lb and I want to lose another 50.

    I love snoozing. I purposefully set my alarm early so I can snooze.

  15. I personally would not recommend working out in the morning unless you can have a good hour for you body to wake up!
    It takes a while for your muscles, ligaments, etc to warm up and it is really easy to injure yourself if you do intense stretches or workout straight out of bed.

    My routine is:

    10:30 wake up, get out of bed, (i know, scandalous! I actually don't even use an alarm, i always wake up at 10:30...)
    10:40 eat breakfast, 2 cups raw oats with 2tbs of yoghurt and a handful of blueberries.
    10:45 to 11:45 take care of things on the computer, answer mails, business.
    11:45 leave the flat, go to Brazilian jiu-Jitsu training from 12 to 2pm

    day/evening of work

    do an hour of yoga around 11pm later if it was a gig night

    go to bed between 2 and 4 am

    Start again...

    It might seem like a strange way of living to most people, but i hate mornings with a passion. I prefer to live in the evening/night. I am a full time bass player so my work rarely needs me to be up early.
    It is easier for me to have a constant rhythm of late nights than to feel like crap after late gig nights.
    Also, it gives me time to train during the day and do a lot of photography which is my main hobby.

    It changes for me daily. I like the structure of a routine and miss it to some degree, but I also like mixing it up based on how I feel when I awaken from my slumber.

    Whoever told you that was lying. ;)

    Ive actually been thinking of waking up a half hour earlier to get in some morning yoga/meditation and excersise, alternating days, of course.

    As it is now, I wake up at 6:30 - shower - get dressed - check facebook - drive to work. Thats my weekday.

    Weekends - Sleep in til 11 or so. Do whatever.
