One area of training that some people neglect to do is leg training, because it does take a massive amount of energy, especially if you are into building muscle mass which requires a lot of compound exercises such as squats, dead lifts, and leg presses.
I have found that if you have time to adjust your training routine so that you can get your leg workout done in the morning, it is much easier to pound out a heavy leg workout when you have more energy to do so.
Today I am going to talk about a quick morning workout routine and leg training and the sacrifices that you will need to make in order to receive the results that you are looking for.
Top of the morning
Not everybody has time in the morning to get their workout in, but if you can get your workouts done in the morning, it will make it much easier for you to give it your best when pumping out a heavy workout routine.
Often it can be difficult to have the energy to get a hard pumping workout done in the evening, because after you have expended your energy throughout the day working and keeping up with your other daily chores, you can often be left with no energy at all.
There could be a way that you can get all you’re evening chores done so that you can retire for the evening an hour earlier. If you can get to bed just one hour earlier, you could get up just that much earlier the next morning and have the time to get a quick pulse pounding work out in.
What system to follow
Sometimes it can take longer to get a workout in if you do straight sets, but if you follow a system like tri-sets or super sets, it can make your workout quicker.
Following a system like super sets where you do a set of squats followed up by a set of leg extensions followed by a minute and a half of rest would make up one super set.
If you were to do tri sets, you could do a set of squats, a set of leg presses and a set of leg curls in one try set and then rest for 2 minutes.
Whether if you are following try-sets or super sets, all you really need to do is five sets and you have your workout done.
Following a program
Below I have a couple of workout programs that you can go according to, the first one is an idea of a super set workout and the other is an idea on a tri-set workout.
3 super sets
Two super sets
3 Tri sets
- Leg presses
- Leg curls
Two tri sets
This is simply an idea that you can follow by, you can try different exercises or switch these exercises around, feel free to do so. It is all a matter of what exercises work best for you and what you feel most comfortable with.
Advantages of early morning workouts
There are specific advantages to doing your workouts early in the morning, but the biggest one is you will definitely have more energy in the morning.
Another Advantage behind working out in the morning, is if you work out at the gym, there is a very good possibility that the early morning gym hours will be much less people.
This way machines and weights won’t be tied up and it will make it much easier for you to freely move about from one exercise to the next and from free weights to machines without having to wait in line to use a piece of equipment.
If you have a hard time getting a workout done in the early morning hours, it isn’t the end of the world, the point of this article is to give some ideas on how to get a good workout in when you have a busy schedule and have difficulty getting a workout done later in the day.
Many people have hectic schedules and quite often make excuses as to why they miss workouts, and then there are also people that are trying to start up a workout program and use time and energy as an excuse to never get started.
Another way that some people lean towards is if they don’t have enough time or money to make it to the gym to get a workout in, they might set up their own home gym, they simply pay for the workout equipment and never have to worry about keeping up with a gym membership.
Working out at home people don’t have to spend time driving back and forth to the gym and they save a lot of gas money at the same time.
