Morning Workouts: I Mean Early 5am/6am

99.9% of you are most likely thinking 'Are you crazy? Why the hell do you get up so damn early to go to the gym,’ or 'I wanna get up and start the day young but I don’t how too.’

Trust me. My alarm went off at 5:15 a.m. and I thought to myself 'Do I really want to get up and do fasted cardio? Come on, sleep in. Your body needs it.’ STFU!

Ugh, I’ve been telling myself I need extra rest because I work sooo hard. But do I really? Do I really push myself? I began to give myself some extra sleep in the morning, considering 8:30 a.m. is what I think sleeping in is. Getting to the gym by 9:45 a.m. finishing around on 12:00 p.m. leaving me 30 minutes to clock into work.

But am I maxing out my time where I needs too, or am I being lazy? To be honest I’m being lazy. As I type up this little summary thing, on the stair master by the way, I realise how empty the gym is. Why is it hard for majority of people to get up and break a sweat?

Most people would say 'I don’t want too' but if deep down you do, you’re most likely finding an excuse you can. How do you break yourself into becoming disciplined?

To be honest it just starts with finding within yourself what are your goals, what do you want. Once you find that, remind yourself every single day, whenever you look in the mirror, your goals will swallow your thoughts of your excuses. Listening to motivation, music that pumps you up, looking at your idols through your social media are ways to get you up and running in the morning and heading towards your nearest gym.

  • Remember there’s a reason why it’s called self discipline because only you can decide whether you want to be disciplined or lazy.
