The Pilates, Yoga, and Tai Chi Energy-Boosting Workout
Get More Early Morning Energy
Question: "What can I do to get more energy for a morning workout?"
Answer: Try these tips from Lawrence Biscontini, coauthor of Morning Cardio Workouts (Human Kinetics, 2006).
- Think caffeine. Set your automatic coffee maker (or even better, make some green tea) so it's ready when you get up.
- Then eat a small snack that's high in carbs and protein, such as peanut butter on a slice of apple.
- Finally, choose some new music for your routine. "Just hearing something different can get you moving," says Biscontini. And of course, make sure you're going to bed early enough at night.
