AM workouts are THE BEST!!!!

#1 Postby VeganDeVil » Thu Oct 16, 2008 1:19 pm

I feel like I've had a revelation....

I decided randomly to take a 6am sculpting class at my local gym this morning (which I almost convinced myself I didn't want to do as the alarm went off at 5:15)..... and it was one of the best workout experiences I've ever had.

Lots of parking.... no fighting for weights (or getting stuck with weights that are either too light or too heavy).... only 5 people in the class.... and after all was said and done with (class, solo cardio and stretching).... I was out of the gym by 7:45 ready to start my day!

I then came home, read the rest of my book, got my car cleaned and did laundry. AND IT'S ONLY 11:15!!! Mornings rock, I've discovered today.

Just thought I'd share. (It's the little things :D)

you should post this in the "happy things" thread :evil:
No I'm just kidding, you post whereever you want. I agree, morning rocks, it seems we have time to do so much things before noon, and a whole day seems like an entire life if we wake up early and fill the day enjoying every moment.

But 5:15... training at 6:00... yeah I did that once or twice, I wouldn't like to do this everyday though, I would go in the army, lol. But waking up at 6 and training at 7 is great, for me.

Oh and by the way, working out in the morning kicks ass.
I try morning, afternoon and night.

LOL ! I'm laughing but what's so funny about the Canadian army? Their soldiers are less violent than the Marines ? anyway it's not like I bother, even if they were little boyscouts I wouldn't care, lol.

There is nothing wrong with them, you just would have to have been raised here I guess.
We have never heard of them up untill the fighting in afganistan, and even still I only really know they are fighting just because I have a canadian wifey

that's a fact, they're pretty discreet, more than American army that's for sure. We're more like followers.

I love morning workouts, but sucky for me I start a new job on monday with 6am starts - so I don't think I am gonna be able to fit it in. Though I may get a better nights sleep, you see I am a bit of a loser and get so excited about my morning workout that I can't sleep properly - also my boyfriend is awake and about at the time I will now have to exercise and I get all self conscious - ah well at least I won't be annoying the neighbours with loud music in the early hours anymore!

morning workouts are fantastic. i used to work a late shift starting at 11. i would get up at 6 have a light breakfeast and get started by 7. i like it because not much gets in your way around that time. and i found that my discipline and motivation are best around those times. unfortunately i started a regular 8 to 5 job now and i actually am having trouble keeping up my training like i should. perhaps i should just get up at 5 and be done with it at around 7. :D

Indeed, working out early makes you feel utterly jacked. I used to wake up at 5 am and either play tennis or lift; it always gave me a buzz lasting at least until noon.

Yep, AM workouts are for me...no crowds, no questions, etc. Just hardcore training!

That’s unfair and ignorant.

The Canadians have an exemplary military history.

They were the foe the Germans feared most in WWI, it was the Canadians who finally took Vimy Ridge etc.

The Canadians took huge casualties in proportion to the size of their population in those days.

Canada also had a distinguished record in WWII. Who knows that by 1945 it was little old Canada that had the world’s fourth biggest airforce and navy?

I have no doubt that man for man, Canadian soldiers piss on their US counterparts.

Also the Canadians weren’t late for both World Wars. :D

When tested the Canadian military more than step up to the plate, and then some, and it’s sacrifices should not be mocked and belittled.

Evening workouts all the way for me, hate training early in the day.
