Some Wake-Up Workouts In The Morning
First of all, I believe that most of you do not do wake-up workouts immediately after you are awake in the morning, am I right? Well, according to studies, wake-up workouts in the morning are the best way to start your day. Doing wake-up workouts in the morning are a great way to wake yourself up, which can add an extra boost to your day, so that you will feel good and make your day. Wake-up workouts can also burn calories, and relieve aches and pains. It is actually important to do wake-up workouts because you just spent many hours sleeping on bed in stillness, that is why you need moves which are also not too hard on your body and joints for the first thing in the morning. So now I am going to explain some wake-up workouts in the morning and hopefully you will read through this article.
Stretch knee to chest
Place one knee on your chest and keep the other leg bent. Do not look up or strain your neck. Take 3 to 4 deep, relaxing breaths, and feel the stretch of your hips and lower back. Then repeat for the opposite knee.
Hold one leg and pull it towards you, then straighten it until it is as comfortable as possible. Keep the other leg flat or bent on the bed. Take deep and relaxing breaths for 3 to 4 times, relax, and feel your hamstring stretched. Then repeat for the other leg.
Slowly roll your knees to one side to keep your knees together and make sure both of your shoulders are always in contact with the bed. Take deep and relaxing breaths for 3 to 4 times, relax and feel the stretch of your lower back. Then repeat on the other side.
With your feet parallel, shoulders back and down, rotate your upper body to one side until it is comfortable, do not move your hips. Repeat 6 to 8 times on both sides, breathing deeply and relaxingly on each side to release the stiffness in your lower back.
With your feet parallel and shoulder-width apart, lower yourself as comfortable as possible until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Do not let your knees rest on your toes. Once you hit the bed, stand up and repeat. Perform 8 to 10 slow and controlled squats.
To sum up, those are some wake-up workouts in the morning which include stretch knee to chest, stretch hamstring, roll knees, rotate trunk, and squats. I hope you can understand each of them and try to do them the next day when you wake up from bed.
