 morning exercises

Many people wake up irritated and in a bad mood. The reason for this is lack of physical activity at night. Or, in other words, hypokinesia, which, in turn, leads to chronic fatigue and nervous excitability.

At night, the number of impulses entering the brain from the muscles is minimal. The lack of impulses due to the lack of body movements negatively affects the state of the blood vessels feeding the brain.

Accordingly, after a person stops sleeping, his nerve centers need time to "accelerate", starting to work at a slower pace. If you do not activate them "forcibly", tone and strength will appear by about noon.

Safety «regulations»

  1. Do not confuse morning exercises with sports training. The first is necessary in order to "charge" you with energy for the whole day. The second is to "exhaust" the body and spend a lot of energy, cause muscle tension and their subsequent growth.
  2. Do not use exercise machines, dumbbells or other aids while charging. You should not do a warm-up with a hitch.
  3. You need to perform no more than 5-10 exercises, 8-10 times each. No reps-laps like in sports. If you are just starting your morning workout, the amount of exercise can be reduced. Smooth bends forward and backward, simple stretching, standing on tiptoes will be considered a full exercise.
