Morning warm-ups with Irina Sozonova

October 2, 2020

We all know from childhood that morning exercises are good for the elderly and young, but we often cannot convince ourselves to start exercising. Usually, people give themselves logical reasons against doing a set of morning exercises:

“I don’t have time.” 

Morning exercises can be completed in 10 minutes. If you can’t find this time in your normal routine, then you can try to set a goal for yourself and get up earlier. A few minutes of lying in bed will not make you feel more invigorated than exercising.

“I don’t need this.” 

If you are in great physical shape, this is not a reason to give up gymnastics. A set of exercises helps your body to cope with stress during the transition from sleep to wakefulness and improves mood.

“I’ll get tired before work.” 

Morning exercises, unlike fitness in the gym, do not involve heavy physical exertion. The lesson will not tire you, but on the contrary will give you strength and energy for the whole day of active life.

How to start morning exercises?

  • The exercises do not start immediately after waking up. Wait 10 minutes and only then start the warm-up.
  • Morning exercises should bring joy and pleasure, so you should not choose a heavy set of exercises with serious physical activity.
  • Morning exercises should not be long. Let your complex include 5-7 exercises, each of which has 10 repetitions.
  • The warm-up area should be spacious and well ventilated.
  • Effective morning exercises should concentrate you and set you up for work, so exercise at a calm pace with music.
  • An interesting fact: in China, special rooms are arranged in houses, where the whole family, from an old grandmother to a nursing baby, gathers in the morning for gymnastics lessons.

Morning warm-ups is a great way to work out all major muscle groups in a relatively short period of time. Each warm-up consists of several exercises for different muscle groups.

A competent load distribution will help improve physical condition and increase muscle endurance. Daily light physical activity in the morning improves blood circulation in the body, normalizes metabolism, promotes the elimination of toxins, activates the production of the hormone of joy (endorphin), keeps muscles in good tone and fit, improves attention, and suppresses stressful situations.
