+1. Get it done and over with - you're ahead of the curve. No dreading it till the end of the day.

Any tips on morning workouts? Is it wise to have a cup of coffee and a snack beforehand? Ultimately I think it will come down to just doing it and creating a routine.

In a short time, you'll crave the morning workout. You'll hardly be able to sleep, and want to get up super early to get started. Mornings are better because your muscles are well rested and fully charged with carbos, the streets are empty of traffic, and the pollution is at its lowest. In California, it also helps that the temperature is at its lowest and the humidity is at its highest.

Water only. If you take any calories, your body will get off fasting metabolism and will stop burning fats. This makes it really difficult for your body to switch to aerobic metabolism. You'll have plenty of sugar stored in your liver and brain to feed the aerobic demand.

BTW, don't work out every day. Every third day is best. It takes 48+ hours for your muscles to repair after a workout. Repetitive, daily workouts are injuries waiting to happen.

Yes, Conne, be careful not to work out every day.

I don't think you need to worry about Conne working out too much.

Although its very difficult to get up early in the morning but i still agree to the fact that exercising in the morning is the best time. In Morning everything looks fresh it freshes your mind and body more then if at night.

I did this last summer. Mind you my gym is a 10 min walk from my house. I would get up around 6:30am, eat a small breakfast and hit the gym around 7am.

It can be daunting, but once you're done, it feels great and you can do whatever you want after work.

This.

I prefer exercising in the morning. For about 7 years I went at 5 in the morning until my daughter entered school. Now I go after I drop her off, in order to avoid double morning traffic. Going to a gym in the afternoon is hellish. Not only are you exhausted, but gyms are packed and it's a pain to use the equipment.

I can't be bothered to excercise in the afternoon. Too many things going on then. Dogs need walking, gf and friends want to hang, dinner to cook, movies and ballgames to watch. 5 in the morning I have all to myself, and I go into work feeling good.
