Waking up in the morning can be a very hard thing to do. While you might promise yourself the night before that the morning will be all about a good workout, a better breakfast and a great start to the day, actually following through with your plans can be very tricky indeed. Things are about to change. Simply by following a ten minute workout routine, you can significantly boost your energy and spring into the day feeling remarkably revitalized. Want to be a better, brighter you? It’s time to get moving.
To warm up, try following a sequence of lunges in order to stretch out your legs and work up a sweat. Walking your hands out onto the floor into a plank position will help to get the blood flowing to all areas of your body while strengthening your core muscles. Follow this routine for 6-10 repetitions or over the course of 2 minutes.
Next, it’s time to get your pulse racing a little bit. For a period of 2 minutes, try jogging in the same place in your room. Alternate your speed every 30 seconds, sprinting for 20 seconds and leisurely jogging on the spot for the remaining 10. It might be hard work, but interval training like this can significantly help to boost your health and strengthen your heart.
Now, it’s time for a few strengthening exercises. Burpees are a great way of pushing your body and strengthening your core muscles at the same time, helping you to sculpt your muscles into shape. Starting in a plank position, jump your feet forward so they are tucked under your stomach. Next, jump up into a standing position before jumping back down into a squat. Extend your legs back out into a squat and repeat again for 3 minutes.
Finally, it’s time to work your leg muscles a little more. Repetitions of squats and hopping can really help to up the burn when you workout and strengthen your muscles considerably. If you want to make things more difficult, try incorporating the two, jumping between two squats in order to propel yourself forwards. You might hurt afterwards but after a few stretches, you will feel considerably energized for the rest of the day.
