Call me crazy, but I get my best lifts in later in the day. I’m awake longer, have more food in my stomach for fuel, and don’t really like rolling out of bed to attack the weights. That’s just me. But, there is something to be said to starting your day with SOME sort of morning workout.

It doesn’t have to be a full-on 90 minute session, but you should do something. It wakes up your brain, fires up your nervous system and allows you to start your morning with a stoked metabolism.

Check out this video:

Many use push ups or body weight squats (right out of bed) to help wake them up in the morning, but since I’ve been waking up at 4am and getting ready to coach at 5, I’ve been getting my morning conditioning in around 7am.

Here’s my morning protocol:

[1] Wake up around 4.

[2] Get ready to head to the gym to coach some morning sessions.

[3] Suck down my combo protein shake concoction around 6am (in between sessions) with my custom-made, morning vitamin packet. (Better to do conditioning with a little something in your stomach, as it helps maintain hard-earned muscle mass).

[4] Start my conditioning around 7am for 20-30 minutes. Which usually consists of jump rope and/or strength exercises like kettlebell swings or turkish get ups.

I suggest you start your day with some sort of conditioning EVEN IF you’re main source of training is lifting. It will help you stay lean in the off-season, improve circulation (which improves muscle pumps), and will keep you ready to perform if you’re ever faced with a life-or-death situation.

It’s a crazy world out there, and I don’t know about you, but I want to be ready to perform if I ever need to protect my family. No good being sloppy-strong. Remember, slow, fat guys are the first to die when shit goes down.

Be big. Be strong. And for your family’s sake – BE CONDITIONED.
