Count me in. Unfortunately, wanting to work out in the morning and actually doing so were two different things. Dragging myself out of bed on time to get ready for the day used to feel like a struggle; getting up even earlier to fit in a workout proved to be nearly impossible. Generally, working out in the morning is better because it’s easier to commit to and get done before the day’s responsibilities get in the way. In the evening, many people feel tired after work or.

To start, schedule one morning workout per week. Try choosing a day you have something fun planned for that night. Knowing you can’t put your workout off might give you more incentive to get out of bed and exercise that morning. When you start to feel okay with one day per week, bump it up to 2. If you want to become more of a morning exerciser, here are some of my top tips.

Maybe they’ll help you too! 1. Ease into it. If you’ve never exercised in the morning before, don’t sign up for 6 a.m. personal training sessions five days in a row.

To start, schedule one morning workout per week. Working Out in the Morning: 9 Tips 1. Envision waking up early, working out — and enjoying it. It may sound hippity-dippity, but if you can’t imagine yourself walking up early to work out and enjoying it, chances are you won’t do it. Start Small and Build Up Incorporate what’s called micro-habit model, where a fitness habit is broken down to only the most basic steps.

You don’t want to give yourself the power of choice in the morning. Eliminate the possibility of finding an excuse NOT to go. You can’t form a sustainable habit overnight. Even if you miss a day or several, keep pushing to get up and get going. You’ll feel your morning habits start to form after a few weeks — then getting up won’t be nearly so painful.

GET GYM-READY. I find it best for me, to start out with a glass of water right after I wake up. I then go through my stretching routine.

It is important to properly stretch before any exercise. I don’t do a full workout in the morning, but if you do, remember exercising releases. All other things being equal, working out in the morning will help to boost your metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories for the rest of the day.

This phenomenon is called excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC. The best time to exercise—whether that’s a mid-day, evening, or morning workout—is whenever works with your schedule. Figuring out how to start working out is hard enough without having to rework your entire routine.

That said, there is one time of day that seems to have a leg up for exercising, and that’s the morning.

I find that the best time to exercise is first thing in the morning; it’s too easy to tell yourself that you’ll do it later in the day and then find excuses not to.

  • Yo he doin all this simple shit like mountain climbers and jumping jacks then he like “now we gonna do a handstand hold” I’m like well that’s where it ends for me

  • As an exercise physiologist, I really appreciate the thought that you put into both the warm ups you chose as well as the explanations you gave for warming up in the first place. Also, your form is incredible! Freaking flawless, man! Keep it up!

  • I already do SOME of those things like stretching and working out (I am a dancer) and opening my window and doing my daily skin care but I am definitely going to be trying everything

  • Anna, thank your for giving me ideas for morning and night routines, I add a few more things because I have a Dalmatian and a baby brother and I need to help out with them, I’ve gotten a lot from you!

  • If you see this anna then can you post a video of mistakes while stretching because I try stretching as much as possible but see no results

  • Now i know you have faith to God i have one more reason to have sympathy for you Frank. Regards from en ex champ, pro trainer insipired always from your videos. Best wishes from Greece!

  • Thank you so much for your tips �� In the morning I start by opening my windows and shutters to get some fresh air and blue light, then I take a shower, make my bed, do my journaling, read, sometimes I do my yoga in the morning and then I have breakfast during my webcam with my twin sister (it’s a bit like a mukbang hehe ��) ��

  • Anna I know you won’t respond but your amazing you are the nicest girl that I watch on YouTube you help me every day stay healthy and safe ����������

  • Quarantine started i have lots of learn about flexibility of you anna im doing it higher leg hold,Neddle,oversplit thank you anna stay safe����

  • I can’t drink water in the morning! I drink a lot of water but if I do it when I wake up in the morning I get really nauseous the rest of the day

  • My kids are night owls. Typically they don’t fall asleep until about 10. Crazy. But daddy doesn’t go to sleep until they do. Throws off my morning routine of waking up early.

  • Im a gymnast. During this pandemic all the gymnasiums are closed. So i need to do all of my workouts and streches alone. So i watch ur videos everyday and it motivates me to go go further. Thank you so much anna �� ��

  • Before quarantine started I coundnt even split without feeling pain and now I can oversplit and do a needle thank you so much anna

  • Awwwww. I can’t. Sugar such as
    Cookies, Chocolate, Ice Cream(Any flavors), Jam, and Peanut Butter prevents me from being like you Mister.

  • Good stuff man, now that I have to be into work at 6a and being a new dad I’m going to have to go to the gym at 4a. I’ve made every excuse not to go so I needed to hear this. Good luck sir. Just subscribed!!

  • I love your video I have been watching you for a few years and I became flexible. I started eating only healthy for a year. So I decided to stop junk food for the rest of my life

  • Usually I try to eat a healthy breakfast but…
    This depends on what we have at home but sometimes I end up not eating anything until lunch or I eat like an apple or something.
    I am going to stretch in the morning now to help ��

  • Thank you anna I literary learned splits in less than 2 weeks, I am really close to a teardrop. All the credit goes to you. Thank you anna

  • Before quarantine I was soo inflexible but now I can do splits, backbend, teardrop backbend, and walkover thanks a lot anna ❤❤������

  • Hi Anna!!! I’ve been doing your back stretches and I am so close to a contortion handstand in the span of 2 months can you do another video on how to do it please!!!

  • Working out in the morning has become a routine that I can keep up verses after work. At 57, it is my magic pill to stay ailment free and away from the hospital….

  • Especially final seasons I have classes and meetings from 8a to 9p…really don’t have energy after that so have to crash my workout in the mornings lol

  • Dude, I wake up at 4 am, eat then wait til 4:50 and bike to the gym 4 miles away. I get there by 5:20 am and workout til 6:30 and shower in the gym then bike to school. After school I bike to work from 4 to 8 bike home, get there by 8 30 pm. Shower drink my shake. Sleep and repeat by 9 pm.

  • I’m up at 03.45 and warming up by 04.00 and finish my routine at 04.45!!! but the really bad point is I don’t eat till 09.00 my first break at work:(

  • I have been doing 2 workouts per day for past 1 month, which is pushup variations and abs in the morning and, Resistance band exercises of two muscle groups like chest nd triceps or back nd biceps or shoulder nd legs in the evening.
    So is this ok to do or is it right??

  • I prefer working out at 3am when I use to work night shift I would get off work at 3am then go workout until bout 5:30 -6am went home sleep woke up feeling great and I got my PROTEINS in also but in conclusion it depends

  • This video is so helpful, getting an internship this summer then starting work in less than a year this helps me out so much to stay on track!

  • For me, im adapted in the morning because im way to busy in the afternoon about projects and shopping. After that im really tired and sleep afternoon. It really depends on what you started with, adjusting your time can get a longer results though…

  • I workout at home most mornings before 5am without eating breakfast or drinking coffee. If I had to go to the gym I’m 100% sure I wouldn’t workout. Great tip on planing your workout cause some morning I’m like what workout dvd should I do? Then I’m like I think I’ll go back to bed and workout later in the evening, and I don’t because I’m too lazy.

  • i think the night team grow more becouse we all know muscule grow when you sleep after trainin maybe drink some milk or eat high protein and 1 hour later go to sleep

  • Reason why evening workouts are better is solely because you usually have eaten meals before, giving you the energy you need for your workout compared to the morning where you usually have only eaten breakfast. More food, more energy. Even if you are well rested in the morning, your muscles don’t function off sleep, they function off glucose(carbs).

  • Thanks for saving me during lockdown. I was gaining a lot of weight and was having severe back pain. Your dumbell exercises have worked my back really well and the pain is gone.

  • Hi… my only plan is to at least run every morning. Since I don’t have much time, is it okay to go shower immediately after a run?
    Thanks… ☺️

  • I think it’s depends if your cardio or oldies you need to do in morning also if your gaining and if your losing weight or form it should be the best in the afternoon between 4-7pm but it’s okay you start at 3. In reality the best time to work out is after work hahahaha!

  • Hi, my lifestyles is not on time type. Because my job timing is international time from my original time(6 hours backwards). I work from afternoon to morning. 2nd question is, whenever to exercise. Can i exercise with empty stomach. And can i exercise right after i finish my meal(at least 10mins after meal) thank you.

  • And the best time to workout if you workout 2 times is both morning and evening. I at times workout 2 times. Mostly I workout in evening but workout the time you feel right except afternoon and night.

  • 4 7 pm without a shadow of a doubt for weights. I have tried weights in the morning even after a decent breakfast…….Didnt like the result. I can even be a bit tired after a day at work and get a better lifting session at 6 pm.

  • For me working out in the morning is great because then I can just get along with my day without the worry of going to the gym and just getting it done as soon as I wake up

  • I often do my workout depend sometimes in my best performance. I do not have schedules, i just do the workout when I want. It’s my habit tho, but sometimes, i feel so tardy to do the workout because of the climate. U know. When it is hot, I just want to sleep.

  • Great video!! I myself I workout when ever I feel like to. especially when I skip my morning workout… There is no excuse not to workout. Atleast few push-ups as I’m obsessed with push-ups.

  • can you make OPM workouts for every body part that is for all levels? I am looking for a good quality workout i can use and base mine on. anyway, luv your videos!! i liked this style of video, but I love your motivational videos the most. I watch them before I start working out to remind me of what I want to achieve. thanks for making great content!

  • I feel best working out in the evening between 5pm to 8pm. I’m not a morning person at all and I seem to have more energy around that time.

  • Frank awesome video!thank you so much for sharing. Do you use weights at all? Can you do a what I eat in a day video? So glad to see you are a man of faith. Thank you again!

  • God bless you and your family Frank. May God keep you and His face shine upon you. He who began a good work in you is faithful who also will complete you. ��❤

  • Another great vid, Travis. I find it harder to commit to the morning workout routine in the winter. I think I get seasonal depression which makes it much harder to wake up and get out of bed but usually have no problem in spring or summer. Any tips on breaking that mental barrier?

  • Hey Frank brother iam from India…Plzz tell me how much u weighed before u became a fitness freak…. N now….��…I wanna know…were u thin before…. plzzz reply…����������

  • Hi Frank nice video, just one thing. For YinYan you have to sleep at the right and your wife at the left. They will be do a better and strong couple!!! Tomorrow I´ll do exercicies early!! See you from Chile!!

  • I like this type off vidéos man! workouts there are plenty of them now and they just invent more and more exercises as hell even exercises they just do for the audience. keep being créatif and tell people things they don’t know yet… For example me, I love swimming, and doing pushups because i travel a lot and gym is difficult… maybe making a vidéo on how we can mix two different sports or whatever… maybe a workout with only pushups and squats but made difficult with shorter rest periods… anyway, thank you!

  • Lets just binge watch. This is definitely what I needed though. You eat raisin bran? lol. And gotta try the 15 Minute early alarm. ugh. I gotta snoooooozeeeeee

  • Dear Frank, could you give us an inside look of your stretching and mobility work in your next video? How long do you usually warm up? Great video btw! Keep going strong!

  • The start is always the hardest, but after a month or two it just becomes part of your daily routine, this can apply to anything in life

  • oh come on!!! never step on the heel on the treadmill. No matter how good a running shoe is, by step on the heel you just damaging ur joints, take care!

  • All that while me and my girl are sleeping and wake up at 10:AM (And that is early for us XD) I hate getting up early, I´m more of an afternoon, night guy. Sometimes we get up at 2:PM… of course in quarantine and off days, as in normal times ´s a torture for me to have to get up at 4:AM.

  • Ciao Frank, sarebbe molto bello per me se mettessi i sottotitoli in italiano, scusami ma, non capisco la tua lingua ☹️ ti seguo da tanto per gli esercizi…quelli li vedo �� grazie!!

  • Frank Medrano
    That processed powder you drink and processed food for your dog Is No Good. Don’t know about your face wash either. Shouldn’t need that. EveryThing Should Be Real Foods and Chemical Free as Nature intended.

  • This video was amazingly useful, Frank. Would love to see even more of your daily routines. Always enjoy and learn when you provide recipes and this one was terrific. Take us even deeper into your mind and your creative processes. How do you come up with new exercises so prolifically? Your workout videos are the very best!

  • Great video! Are usually do my cardio before school and then lifting after school! I find it wakes me up more and I like to really be able to focus on the lifting! But when you’re that pressed for time you got to stay on that grind and get it in early GOOD work Travis

  • It is is hard for me to raise my hand to do an aeriel so can your next video be on how to stop the fear of falling in trying to do an aeriel

  • Im a night workout type of guy but hey i can try morning workouts. Ill change my routine next week. Ill wake up at 4am. Great video & is amazing how you changed(your body transformation)

  • I used to be, but then I started going to events that end close to midnight and I’d just get run into the ground. Also I’ve only ever snapped myself up working out first thing in the morning…

  • After watching some of your vids, I feel like I don’t need the gym anymore. I was going almost everyday until they closed for COVID-19. I was freaking out! Then you helped me overcome my gym dependents. Respect ✊

  • Early riser here; I walk up and down the stairs for 25-30 min. inside my complex at 4:15AM. I get everything ready afterwards then drop the kiddo to the sitter then go to work. I lift at the gym at work 4-5 days at lunch. I love my routine and wouldn’t trade it for anything.

    Love the flashbacks!!

  • 1. Plan the day before ( food and reps)
    2. Gym or clothing day before
    3. Prepare Breakfast the day before
    4. Set alarm way earlier
    5. Sleep early
    6. Music to get you pumped
    7. Skip breakfast
    8. Coffee
    9. Warm up the body
    10. Nothing else just workout

  • Do you never drink alcohol? Only thing stopping me from doing this everyday is some hungover mornings once in a while (or maybe more than once in a while lol)

  • Only thing i would say is your body needs something in its system before workout, if you dont want to wait the hour after a meal then just have something like a banana high in cards for the energy needed for your workout and or a sports drink.

  • Nice video!
    Do you workout everyday? Always split?
    How do you usually organize your week for your bodyweight workout? (Like which muscles which day)

  • hheria: now you’re gonna see that your hear rate is getting a bit higher
    my heart: HEY WHAT THE ACTUAL F IS GOING ON I’M LITERLALLY GONNA DIE

  • A lot of liberals do have this laziness about them, I don’t know, maybe it’s because they associate discipline with authoritarianism or something. In any case, you are not going to get used to something if you do it for shorter than a few months. It takes at least 3-4 months to get used to something. And for exercise you’d need to do some serious exercise if you want to enjoy the energy boost. No steady state cardio if you’re looking for that energy boost.

    Now I’m not saying it’s easy. I’m not like that ex-SEAL dude who thinks it’s natural to get up at 4 a.m. to do burpees until you throw up. Like that’s a natural act. No, it’s not a natural act. But if you want something bad enough you’re gonna do it, and you should have faith that after 4 months it’ll feel natural.

  • 6:30? I wake up at 4:45, gym from 5:30 6:30 work by 6:45 finish work at 4 go hom eat sleep repeat I’m only 18. If I can do it you to #noexcuses

  • Yes!! I’m more of a 5am gal but I definitely feel you on the getting up early!! You get way more done.. and I’m also the annoying morning person at my job ������

  • I prefer working out in the night cause it’s hot as hell here in the philippines and it’s really quite at night since my parents are asleep

  • I love this! Like honestly most of these styled videos give you really vague guidelines to follow that end up with you just picking and guessing what you think is right. This is short, sweet, clear cut and easy to follow while ALSO being extremely informative. I don’t normally click the like button (or comment for that matter), but this one deserves it for sure

  • In the past I never drank caffeine before my workouts. Lately I’ve notice when I drink green tea before a workout my performance has improved and I have more energy when I workout.

  • I dont really see where the 4 or 5 hours went given you mainly spent time planning and working out. Looks like you rather woke up around 7am

  • So true.. first thing I think about when I wake up is how busy I am and I don’t have time for the workout. I end up justifying it and saying I’ll work out in the evening. When the evening comes, I’m too tired and I end up not working out at all. Sucks

  • Any suggestions on what workouts i can do? I don’t really care what types they are; i just want to build atleast some muscle and wake up before school to do them. Thanks

  • Really enjoyed your video, very valid tips. Thank you. I’m really trying to change my life but struggling. Hopefully I can apply your advice to my life and get to the gym in the morning. It’s the only time I’ll get with a young family.

  • I do cardio dances in the morning for about 45 minutes after i do stretches and then i eat a light breakfast then i go to work and after i eat lunch and then dinner i try to walk after every meal along with regular morning cardio

  • “Im showing up increasingly late to work & I’m already late to begin with”…………..
    Yea, this lifestyle isn’t for him. I couldn’t do it either. Sleep is precious to me.

  • I’m gonna start doing this cause, I got assignments and projects due at school in a couple days and we’re short staffed at work because one person got fired and the other is on vacation

  • Before noon is better for me because I can concentrate for the rest of the day on eating enough macros and calories.
    It sucks to have to eat a lot and THEN work out on top of it and THEN eat some more.

  • This is gold!! Go out buy Insanity, P90x something you can do at home… I sleep in my workout clothes…. and I drink a protein drink after my workout in the morning.. the more organized you are the easier it is…. to workout in the morning wake up 1-2 hours before you normally would… do atleast 45-1 hour in the morning…. this guy is awesome.

  • how could they not like working out like ahhhhhhh man it’s so much fun to strain your body muscles and mind and then relax and let them rebuild stronger it’s amazing although I get this feeling and thought process because I started watching dbz ��

  • Great to watching it after my morning looks very similar especially using resistance band for morning training to prepare for pole dance workout ��

  • Oh wow 5 whole days of waking up at the same time as everyone else and doing light to moderate exercise for 20 minutes??? You guys are badasses!

  • People think that running is everything. Lift some weights, do some HIIT, don’t just run. It not very effective at loosing fat anyways

  • It’s hard at the beginning, I have to be to work at 7, so I wake up everyday except Sunday at 4am to work out so I dnt have to do it after work, which gives me more time out of my day to focus on other objectives I need to take care, I have more energy in the morning, more focused, and it slowly becomes a habit. Just how bad do you want to make a change is what you ask yourself everyday to motivate yourself to strive even harder

  • I go to bed around 2am normally and sleep in as late as I can and still catch the bus but now it’s track session so i need to get sleep and train in the morning wish me luck

  • Actually steady state cardio before noon is about the worst thing you can do to your body especially if you’re feeding it a carbohydrate dense breakfast. Workout between noon and 6pm when your hormones are prime for recovery after you finish and eat carbohydrates only after eating a protein/fat rich breakfast. Carbohydrates should be minimal and only be extra fuel for your workouts.

  • 2 major reasons that he didn’t say
    1. Workout buddy
    2. Group class (not necessary but really helps especially if just starting)

    So I do these group workout classes at 6:15 twice a week and 90% of the reason why im consistent is becausd I have a buddy who also goes, and I feel guilty if they go and I don’t. And also since its a group class I don’t feel crazy for working out at 6 am. Those two days I do it I feel way better throughout the day.

  • I try to do 4pm that way last meal is around 5pm, where i eat then shower make sure to go to sleep at 9pm and wake up at 5am and that way i also get 12hour intermitten fast going, but when i dont sleep right lol i just do it a couple hours after my first light meal

  • Most people who decide to start working out have some kind of fitness goal in mind. A certain physical physique or a weight range on which they desire to be at. But a lot people who get to their goals tend to stop after that.

    A lot of people who do this on and off don’t realize that eatting healthy and exercising on a consistent basis is a lifestyle choice. Just like sleeping in, eatting poor nutritional foods, binge eatting an etc.

  • Ive been working out in the morning for 2 months already, and it still hard sometimes…. some days i just cant do it and then i work out at night but then i feel bad. I guess i need 3 more months to get use to it

  • I like to crank out my workout at 3:15 after the day is done as a means of avoiding injuries. I feel a little more awake and my performance levels are just better. Yes I have experienced the other side of the spectrum and I have just felt worn out while working throughout the day. Keep doing what you’re doing man:)
    A lot of people, especially in America don’t try to keep themselves healthy and I admire that you have made that commitment.

  • Worst part after working out is work at office, damn someone bring me bed and I can sleep for hours. That feeling is so uncomfortable especially after lunch.

  • Dood these buzzfeed ppl don’t have to be to work until like 9 or 10 am. Try having to b to work at 7 with a 30-40 min commute. No reason they couldn’t do it. I’m sorry.

  • I’ve been waking up at 4am on weekdays this week to workout but sleeping in a little more on Saturday and Sunday, is that bad? If I do this long term, will it throw off my schedule and make it harder to stick to?

  • I have tried this and am a convert now. Though I will say that waking up in the morning is still a struggle. But the workout is better in the mornings, for me atleast.

  • i woke up at 5.30 today ran 3.5 miles which is about 8 laps, did 2 pull ups 8 reps each, did some tai chi and i only had 6 hours of sleep, its not about tiredness its about discipline.

  • Put the phone with an annoying alarm on full blast on the other side of your room. You’ll have to get up mad af to turn it off. Then put the gym clothes over the phone, you’ll put them on after turning off the alarm, then profit. Off you go.

  • What kind of morning is it? When I wake up to do my running it’s like 05.00 am and so dark, people on the streets are like shadows.

  • my question is: why? Why would you need to workout in the morning? If you are already working out at any hour on any given day, and that works for you-why the switch? Who says you need to change what’s working (out) for you?

  • The routine:

    take selfies
    get on elliptical for 5 seconds
    take selfies
    check the hottest girl/guy in the gym
    take selfies
    take a break and eat snacks
    take selfies
    finish the workout with walking on the treadmill
    take selfies

  • So I used to workout at nights but since I met my bf I have abandon my lifestyle. I think I am going to switch to mornings so I can just get it out of the way and just cuddle with my bf at night.

  • My sister wakes up at 4:00 in the morning everyday to go to the gym. She is a professional fitness competitor. And also she competes in beauty pageants and is currently…..well I can’t tell you because y’all might kill us. Lol sorry

  • I prefer to go in the night like 8-9. I feel more motivation to push myself to failure because I know that I can get a good night sleep afterwards from being more relaxed and exhausted.

  • I rather work out late at night because that’s when I feel the most alive..waking up in the morning to exercise would mean I have to get up at like 5:30 which would kill my soul slowly. I can’t even sleep until 11:30 or later if I have to work the next day. I say do it when you can and it doesn’t matter as long as you do it.

  • You were saying that it’s crazy that people who didn’t have protein shake/coffee pre workout but I’m over here like YOURE the crazy one, I need a small pack of peanut butter crackers with a baby banana as a pre workout snack because if I don’t get anything solid in my system then there is no way I am getting through my workout

  • so when do you eat? I am trying to make morning training as well but I am a beginner because I want to lose weight. And I have work at 9am to 7pm, should I eat before or after workout and how much should I be eating?

  • Travis can you please let us know your daily meals around a morning workout like what do you eat before and after a morning workout? Any supplements? Thank you!

  • Today i am so excited to see your new video ❤️. As you know your videos are really good. Most of all love your morning routine and night routine videos ❤️. You are so flexible i think you are great person for me.❤️�� #AnnaMcNutlyChallange❤️ #AnnaMcNutly❤️. You my sister and friend also.
    I am waiting for your Heart ❤️��❤️��❤️��

  • i just want to ask you bro
    alot of people say working out with empty stomach its not good
    what do you eat before going to the gym.

  • doing things less than a week and expecting things to be completely and effortlessly integrated into their normal routine which they are accustomed to. might as well make a video about people try working out after work while you’re at it. different strokes for different folks, as long as their trying to better themselves and stay healthy, that’s what matters in the end.

  • It would be no difference if you woke up at 9 other than the amount of people, if you go to sleep at 7 and wake up at 3 there you go same thing as regular people

  • And lets also not forget, lets not forget, Dude, that keeping wildlife, an amphibiius rodent, for uh, domestic, you know, within the city, that isn’t legal either.

  • I want to start working out before breakfast because I want to get it done quicker than waiting an hour after I eat. Problem is I use breakfast to wake up but maybe this’ll help me get motivated.

  • Empty gym, the gym smelling amazing from just being cleaned, and tasting coffee after your workout before the sun comes up is the best feeling!

  • do u have a pre workout early sessions or do u train fasted? and eat post workout/breakfast. i am thinking of doing this i have to be at my workplace 8am sharp most days and some days 9am. lets assume i start 8am and it takes me 10 mins max to drive to the gym what time should i be out of bed?

  • I’m Dipesh from India. �� Yes sir is the best lifestyle and I get up in the morning 5 to 6 am and do exercise! And sir every Single day I watch your Workout video and push my self and do my best you are my inspiration and you are my role model yes sir I first time watch your video in 2018 and today I do perfectly Body Weight Training! and thank you soo much and take care �� luv u!

  • Hi, does working out early in the morning slow down muscle gain, I have recently changed and am going to gym by 5am where as I used to go at 4pm… Will it slow down muscle growth?

  • I’m 31 years old, 175cm tall, 85 kg weight. Would you think you can be my personal trainer to show people how people changes over time with your content? Workout video showed by already shredded individual lacks critical process which to show how body actually changes. You can use me as a model subject. I call it win-win because I can shredded and you can earn more trust and make differences with other youtube work out channels.

  • Man i saw you at Wholes Food at the Domain haha. It was really mind blowing. Will you ever talk about getting into sales, being successful in it, and what type of sales to get into?

  • Compared to big YouTubers, he seems so genuine and authentic. Why someone like him isn’t a YouTuber who has over millions of subscribers!!!

  • Anna your such sweet girl and nice genuinely person, you are literally beautiful inside and out, your so talented you deserved a millions fans, subscribers,love and support ����I’m always here to support you no matter what����

    Can you collab with Sofie dossi and in your next video,any content but with Sofie dossi plsssss ��

  • You are the man bro, keep doing whatcha doing you have no clue how big time it is for us, specially me bro
    I’m following your steps and I’m so positive I will reach your fitness level sooner or later
    You are much much appreciated bro
    Props ����

  • so that’s why i got really strong in no time, since i train between 5pm to 8pm

    when i started training i was 47 kg, 1 year later, now i am 67 kg, yeah all of that gain is pure muscle

  • I like working out in the morning right after a long rest. When I train after work, and it’s a pretty active job, I feel depleted at 6pm. Morning is my go to time ����

  • Good video mate!
    I’m a Management Consultant and i have decided to train in the morning as it works better with my schedule. My workouts in the afternoon/evenings were better, but the flexibility you get after work is better. Love your videos!

  • Best to workout is actually while you’re fasted when you will release highest level of HGH which is your body own natural steroid.

  • Great video Travis! I wake up at 4 and I’m at the YMCA at 5am. I take a cycling class then lift weights afterwards. I have to go in the mornings because I’m a Letter Carrier and I walk 6 plus hours a day. Keep up the great work!

  • Great video, I totally get it. I work out at 04:30 during the week. I have to be committed to being in bed by 21:00 though otherwise the injuries and tiredness cancel out the benefits of the work out. But now that I’ve got my evening routine down, its all good!

  • Sick advices man youre my new favorite fitness youtuber. The style and explanation are just on point and its just straight to the cut. They are also very easy to understand and very grounded in reality which is what i find unique in youre vids. I hope ill be here when the subs get to like 500k plus

  • I would love to be able to work out early in the morning like that. Work at 6am and my gym doesn’t open until 5am. So that’s a no go for me. Great video as always Travis.

  • I am a 4am gym seesh person as well….but sadly I have to switch when I go for the next 3 months. I got a new job and they will have me on all the shifts with training ect ect.
    I was a little upset at 1st lol….I love going 1st thing in the a.m.
    No excuses. And just to get it done feels amazing

  • Wish I could go to the gym at 5 am.. problem: they open up at 7 am. Only on mondays I can get a workout in at 5 am. It’s life because you have the rest of your day ahead of you where you can do everything you want!�� so why 3:57? Just because your time is so calculated?����

  • I always feel sleepy right after workout so i always workout before going to bed. It actually helps me to feel relaxed and sleep better.

  • You have inspired me to get back to the gym in the morning. You answered a lot of questions I’ve been having. I like how you are straight to the point with your videos, short and straight to the point. I have subscribed. Thanks!

  • Can’t do it, my sleep time is 1am-2am LOL. My work schedule isn’t just regular 8-5, it’s random since I work in restaurant. Some days i get off work at 4pm, while other days i don’t go to work til 4pm and end at 1030-11pm. Also I go out during the weekends a lot so I’m not even home til 2am.

  • I used to be an early-to-rise-and-workout person (you were the one to actually motivate me to become one), but my job has me working till late, and now I’m not up till 10, sometimes 11. I always find myself getting home, needing to wind down, and not falling asleep ’till 3/4. I miss waking up before the sun.

  • Didn’t know you are a believer. Keep up the good work and stand for your faith. Be blessed.

    What do you eat in general? Do you do carbcycling or low carb or what type of dieting?

  • Before found your channel I didnt know how to to the splits, how to do a backbend, a good handstand and so many exercises. Now I am flexible. Thank Anna ❤️! Your videos helped me a lot!

  • Just started the workout journey/lifestyle ago. Down 60lbs, I find it easier on my schedule to go to the grind house earlier in the morning rather than later in the day. Digging the videos Travis!

  • Best things you can do troughout your day in order:
    1. wake up
    2. take a cold shower to REALLY wake you up
    3. knock off all your tasks/finish work with ease due to the focus and alertness you gain from the cold shower
    4. go home( but if you were at home all day why tf havent you done anything?! go meet up with friends if you have nothing to do man this shit is also very important, we’re still human remember)
    5. eat dinner(to energize yourself before going to the gym)
    6. go to the gym and get the best workout of your life
    7. go home after the workout and take a shower(Optional: take some quick high proteïn food to prevent muscle soreness)
    8. go to sleep

    EDIT: if you know your gym is full of people in the evening then go before dinner if possible, results may be different but not going at all is much worse.

  • I’m a high school student and I love working out at 4:15! I wake up at 4am, make my protein shake with glucose carbs, and boom I’m headed off to the gym. I love the morning energy I get, the empty gym, and the fact that I can feel the soreness kick in during the school day makes me feel accomplished. And then of course it’s great knowing all I have to do when I get home is eat my prepped meals and I can finish whatever work needs to be done! ��✔️
