Advantages of the Morning Workouts in This Video
The particular workouts in the video above are great because:
- They’re only 3 minutes so they don’t require a lot of time
- They’re fairly easy and won’t make you too tired for work
- You don’t need any equipment and they can be done from anywhere
- Should I work out before or after breakfast?
For best results, eat a light snack 30 minutes to an hour before your workout, then a bigger meal after your workout. If you’re in a hurry and can’t wait, you can skip the snack and just eat afterwards for similar results.
- Will doing this every day help me lose weight?
Because the exercise is so short and not very intensive, you probably won’t see any significant weight changes. It is more for waking up properly and getting some energy to start your day. If you want to see weight loss, increase the time to a half hour workout.
- Can I do this for longer than 3 minutes?
Yes! You can increase time as much as you want. 10 minutes is a good bench mark to work up to, followed by 15 and eventually 30 minutes.
