Five Morning Workouts for All-Day Energy

Five Morning Workouts for All-Day Energy

Just the thought of working out first thing in the morning sounds like drudgery. And to makes matters work, you typically work late, wake up late, and don't get enough sleep to begin with. But there's no better time to make a change than with the new year. Disconnect from your phone by 10 p.m., force yourself in to bed by 11, and set your alarm an hour earlier than usual. These morning workouts are short, quick, simple, and just enough to get the blood flowing and boost your energy levels.
