Early Morning Fat Blaster 3 Workout

  1. 1. Early Morning Fat Blaster 3 Workout Got up early this morning – 6:45am – and hit the gym for an early morning workout. As much as I love working out in the morning, mainly because it gets my started terrifically, I have to say that pushing your body to the limits so soon after a waking isn’t easy. This morning was a case in point. I missed working out yesterday because my car was in the shop all day getting snow tires put on – yes winter is here! – so I wanted to really have a great session today. So I loaded up my iPod with Fat Blaster 3 from month 6 of Fitter U Fitness and got my groove on. It’s funny sometimes to listen to my own voice on my headphones guiding me through my workouts. But I think I’ve actually gotten to the point where I’ve dissociated the fact that I’m coaching myself! But nonetheless, having someone to kick your butt and give your workouts structure makes a huge difference to the process and end result. I have to admit that Fat Blaster 3 is not a “nice” workout. It’s actually pretty mean. It’s only 35 minutes (including warm-up) but it really pushes your body and your mind to the max. There are 2 supersets both featuring some serious compound movements that get all your muscles working. That alone makes it exhausting. Add to that that each exercise lasts 1 minute, with only 30 seconds rest in between each. This is repeated for 3 sets. Within just 10 minutes most people would be wimpering for a pasifier. This morning, I was one of those people.
  2. 2. For me, the best time to workout is mid afternoon. That’s when I feel I get my best work done. But I also love working out early in the morning. Plus, it gives me the opportunity to get in another workout later in the day if I wanted. So even though my muscles were burning and that little voice in my head wasn’t encouraging my effort, I did what I needed to do and finished the workout. Actually, that’s not true. I refused to do the final 5 minutes of mountain climber intervals. By that point, I was toast. Is it Best to Workout in the Morning to Burn Fat? A lot of people have asked me this question and there’s not even much scientific evidence to support the possibility of burning more fat on an empty stomach workout. Here’s my advice – if your workout is compromised because you’re too weak (from low blood sugar or fatigue) and are unable to fully push yourself, then you’re not getting the full benefit of the workout. You won’t be able to lift as much weight, complete as many reps, and (like me) run out of gas before the end of the workout. If fat loss is what you’re after, then you need to push your body to new limits each time you workout. You can’t keep doing the same thing over and over again with the same reps and exercises. Even though I feel great now for having done the toughest work in my day, I feel I could have given a bit more if I worked a little later in the day! Nonetheless, I got way more benefit than sleeping in – that’s for sure! You too can get the best workouts ever – get started for FREE today!
