When it comes to getting out of bed, the struggle is real. But, if your bed is calling you to stay just a little while longer, there’s things you can do to fight its pull. We’re not talking about coffee—although that might help too. We’re talking about morning workouts. It can seem daunting to exercise first thing in the morning, but early workouts can actually help you feel more awake and alert.
When you get your blood pumping, you wake up all the systems in your body. Your metabolism gets a boost, your muscles feel less lethargic, and your mind kicks into full power. That’s why this Daily Morning Core Workout is a great energizer. It might just be the best way to get out of bed!
This morning core workout is great because it requires no equipment. Do it on your bedroom floor! And since there’s no jumping either, you won’t wake up your downstairs neighbors, making it ideal for anyone who lives in an apartment.
