Routines are key to success without them we have no structure = High potential of failure.
You don't have to have some crazy 4am routine BUT you need some form of routine.
It all starts the night before. We will start with the pre-morning routine (night before)
Before going to bed, write down the tasks you need to complete tomorrow.
Look at the list when you start the next day.
End your day by creating another list for tomorrow.
Write down the main tasks (work/ important things that need doing)
Then write down what time you will train and what workout.
Write or log down meals for the next day on paper or MyFitnessPal.
Prep stuff you need out, food, work stuff, gym kit etc.
If this isn't done you have no structure the next time = potentially not hitting goals.
Ensure the phone is away from where you sleep. Once it goes off, get up straight away. If the phone is away from the bed you have to get up to turn it off.
I’ll run through mine so you have some ideas (adjust where needed)
07:00 am - Alarm going off. I grab some water and wait a few seconds then roll out of bed….then I crack out a few press ups 25 ish should do it, seriously (i'm not crazy) this helps to get the blood flowing and wake you up.
07:10 am - I’m out for a walk. Listen to some music. This isn't my workout for the day it's just to wake up basically.
07:25 am - Cold (ish) shower to set me up, now I'm awake. The Kettle is boiling ready for a coffee.
07:30 am - Coffee ready and now reading for 30 min try go for a self development book.
08:00 am - Work time.
Phone away from bedside.
Get up straight away.
DRINK COFFEE haha
This should give you some ideas how to set yours up. It’s key to crush the day ahead.
Same again I won’t say timings as we are all different.
But we want to start with getting off the phone (scrolling)
Grab a book/audible (self development/ learning something)
Ensure foods are somewhat prepped (this will save you from eating junk throughout the next day)
Write out tomorrow's list (all task, time you will train)
Prep clothes ready for the next day. If you go out for a run, walk etc have all that kit good to go.
