way to go on the workouts!  If I were in madison, I’d take your class. Smile

 

I do love morning workouts though.  I’m an early riser anyway though, and i find that working out in the morning wakes me up better than a shower.  I can understand that its not for everyone though …

I agree!  I am not a morning workout person at all.  When I start working, I’m going to need my sleep in the morning!

I used to row crew competitively which meant 5:30am practices. Ever since I stopped I find it really hard to believe that I used to get up and exercise at that hour!! I am SOOO an evening/afternoon exerciser!!

Good for getting your workout in early in the morning.  I have tried everything I could, but I just can’t motivate to work out that early in the AM.  No matter what I do, I always end up hitting the snooze button!

I agree as well. I have attempted it in college and in the working world and by 10AM I’m ready to take a nap! My FI works out in the morning because if he works out at night he can’t sleep. So different!

I hate hate hate waking up for them, but I LOVE being done by 745 in the morning. When i work out at night, i kind of dread it all day. When i work out in the morning its like ripping off a bandaid and i’m just done.

Wow – you ARE going to have abs of steel lol.

I definately agree that it is harder to work out in the morning. I have recently started going to the gym again, and I go at night between 9 & 10 pm. It makes a huge difference, and I’m ALREADY awake, so it is much easier to get motivated. Plus, it helps me sleep better. Since I’ve started working out at night, I can go right to sleep by the time I go to bed (usually midnight) and sleep straight through, where I used to wake up on average of 4 times per night.

I always feel so hypoglycemic and less energetic when I work out in the morning… do you eat anything before?  It’s so hard to have time to eat, digest a little, then do a good workout in the morning!

I prefer the post-work, pre-dinner time too.  I have much more energy, and I’m not yet starving/hypoglycemic!  Wink

I love morning workouts – my brain gets plenty of time to wake up and de-fuzz itself.  But morning pilates or yoga is another story entirely – anything mat-based makes me just want to go back to sleep.

Ugh, me, too! Every morning I set the alarm for 5:30 for get in a P90x workout before going to work, and every morning I reset thta alarm to 7 a.m. without fail, even despite my best intentions the night before and even laying my workout clothes out so that I am ready to hop into them.

I so agree w/ the morning workouts.  I get to work at 6:30 a.m., so to get my morning workout in and have enough time to shower & primp, I have to get up at 4:00 a.m. not fun at all…but worth it.
