A Quick Morning Routine for an Active Lifestyle

Lauren Surbrugg | March 03, 2016
Beep, beep, beep. Your alarm wakes you up from your rest and brings you to a brand new day. How are you going to start it? Are you going to hit snooze and doze in and out of sleep for the first 30 minutes, resulting in decreased productivity and a cloud of grogginess for the rest of the day? Or are you going to stop that alarm and get yourself out of bed for yet another great #NolahDay? We hope it’s the latter. In fact, we’ll take it one step further: Your active lifestyle depends on good health habits, so we challenge you to this morning workout routine to get your heart pumping and your energy focused.


Spend Energy Working Out instead of Snoozing

This workout should take approximately 30 minutes, so the time you previously spent wasting your energy during snooze is now spent in your body’s favor. Doing a strength-based workout in the morning means your body can continue to burn calories throughout the day as your muscles recover. If you’re a fan of cardio, fitness experts recommend doing cardio at lunch or at the end of your day so that you use the necessary ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) energy to get you through your day without losing energy.

Whether you’d like to get yourself to the gym or if you prefer to stay at home, this workout is one worth adding to your list of good health habits.
