Morning Workout Routines

Walking or running on a treadmill is a great form of exercise.

Research has found that a brisk 15-minute morning exercise routine on a treadmill can help alleviate stress, loosen tight muscles and help you sleep better at night.

  • Warm up at a slow pace.
  • Walk at 3.0 for 3 minutes.
  • Jog at 4.0 for 3 minutes.
  • Run at 6.0 for 3 minutes.
  • Walk at 3.0 for 3 minutes.
  • Jog at 4.0 for 3 minutes.
  • Cool down at a slow pace.

As time goes on try to increase speeds.

Lifting weights are good for bone health.

Lifting weights are another great 15 -Minute Morning Workout because this exercise can help increase bone density by stimulating osteoblast activity. In addition, studies have found that lifting lighter weights may be more effective than lifting heavy ones. Just 15-minutes of lifting weights three to four times a week can make a big impact on bone health.

  • Pick weights that are just heavy enough so that your muscles start to tire at the end of each set.
  • Gradually add more repetitions to your routine before increasing the weight.
  • Increase the weight load one pound at a time.

You should always allow time to cool down whenever you finish exercising.

Finally, a cool down period at the end of exercising is every bit as important as a warm-up session before you begin. Furthermore, remember to stay hydrated and wear the appropriate athletic shoes and workout clothes.
