Early Morning Workouts

Brian and I started getting up at 5 am to workout last week. I love the feeling of getting home around 6, and having plenty of time to have breakfast and get ready for work. I also love that my workout is done when I get home, and I don’t have to rush to the crowded gym- overall a win-win. I’m hoping to get in at least 3 morning workouts per week. 

This morning I did chest and triceps:

3 sets of 10-12

cable one arm extension
machine incline chest press
cable tricep kick back
cable cross over
dumbell tricep extension

(check www.bodybuilding.com  or use the jefit app which I previously posted about here if you don’t know how to do any of these exercises)

It was a nice workout and a good burn! I seriously love the peacefulness of the empty gym in the morning. It makes for such a positive start to the day. Lately I’d been in the habit of hitting snooze and feeling groggy in the morning, but I surprisingly feel better getting up earlier. “Early to bed, early to rise”, right??

I have never been a morning person, so it seriously shocks me how much I’m enjoying this. Always push yourself and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish!
