New plan

You have seen the Lazy man's workout. Which i thought was a gem of an idea, unfortunately it does not work for me. I am always too busy after i get off work to have time to do any working out. The few nights i do have time to do some physical activity, i do not want to do anything because i am lazy.

So i have adapted my ideas to match my situation. I am on the second day of my wake-you-butt-early-and-workout-plan. This plan involves dragging yourself out of your bed at ungodly hours to workout. By workout, i mean stretch, do push-ups, and do sit-ups one day and stretch and jump rope the next.

The first day i was out of bed at 6:10 and started stretching. My muscles do not want to move, much less be stretched beyond there normal range of movement early in the morning, so this takes some time. It also hurts like heck. I also did push-ups. My chest, shoulders, lats, and butt (some weird stretch i did really worked) were all sore or a little tight by midday.

Mission accomplished.

The second day i was out of bed at 6:18 and started stretching. After i loosened up, i tried jump roping for ten minutes. It was more like jump rope for a few seconds, mess up, curse, then repeat for ten minutes. My calf and thighs were really tight after i was done and everything that was sore from the first day still was.

Mission accomplished.

So far the entire experience has been one painful foggy dream\memory, which is exactly how i would like to keep it. If i actually start waking up before i get into the shower, i will probably stop because i cannot handle the pain.

Please tell me workoutsforwomen is not your source for all of you exercise needs. (insert gay joke here). But working out in the morning is good. That is what I do most of the time. In the army we say "We do more before breakfast than most people do all day." Run 11 miles before you shower or eat and you will understand what that means.

no I only get streches from there.

I picked up a few streches.

which by the way i feel that stretches are the single most important thing you can do to feel better.

All I can do is laugh.

there are actually several things you can do that feel better than stretching. Drinking, masturbation, and valium are all good ways to start off your morning.
