Doing cardio with an emphty stomac (when you wake up in the morning) involves a number of advantages for our weight loss. When you want to lose body fat without damaging the lean part of your body… you would indeed be ready for morning cardio!
♥ Our metabolism takes advantage of hypoglycemia in the morning (fasting) and uses the lipid reserves in terms of energy .
♥ Everything must be done without stress, otherwise it would be counterproductive, so try not to lose too many hours of sleep … We know that rest and recovery are just as important as training with intensity!
♥ Begin your day with at least 30min of cardio. It has favorable effects on our mood favoring a psychological well-being throughout the day 🙂 I personally feel more active, more energetic and also I can start the day in a good mood! All this thanks to the wonderful endorphins released during physical activity .
Small tips :
♥ Drink before you start exercising .
♥ Always keep at least 5-10 min of heating and general activation to allow time for the body to wake up.
♥ Spend the end of each session to cool down and stretching.
♥ Personally, when I want to give a ” hit ” to my metabolism I drink a cup of coffee before I start!
Today is one of those days where I am dedicated to my Morning Cardio:
First round 7 a.m in the gym…. I , set up my I- pod with the right music …. 30 min passed quickly! Cool-down, stretching … shower …. and finally ….. Breakfast ! !
For breakfast today I made some pancakes made with oat porridge.
The process is very simple:
1 . Prepare the porridge oats with only oats, water, a teaspoon of instant coffee and a few drops of sweetener. When it is cooked, let it cool down.
2 . Mix with the blender porridge with egg white and a pinch of yeast organic sugar-free and gluten-free.
3 . Heat a frying pan and pour the mixture making some pancakes.
Compared to those made with oat flour, the taste does not change very much but I found them much more fluffy 🙂
Coffee taken …. here I am … I am now ready to start my day … and my second round tonight at the gym!
And you …. and how did you start your day ? ?
