IS IT BETTER TO DO FULL-BODY WORKOUTS OR TARGET DIFFERENT BODY PARTS IN EACH SESSION?

HOW CAN I GET MORE ENERGY FOR EARLY MORNING WORKOUTS?

This really depends on what you want to achieve. So you have to keep an eye on the pros and cons of the full body workout so you can determine if this is what you need or not. During a full body workout, the whole body is stimulated which in returns increases the effectiveness of the workout. The highest is the stimulation and the practice frequency, the better and quicker you master the exercise technique. On the other hand, some people cannot deal with full-body workout. Also the efficiency of a full body session depends on the selected exercises, if the muscles were not targeted equally it may cause a lag in the development of some body parts, were some grow quicker than others. 64 | March 2018

If you are getting adequate rest but you’re still not feeling energized in the morning, the problem may be that your body is in a state of ketosis after fasting throughout the evening during your sleep. Ketosis is when the body is using fat for energy. If you aren’t eating enough carbohydrates, then your body turns to fat for energy. This can cause that low energy feeling before your workouts. Green tea, green juices, coffee and even getting sunlight can help boost energy levels. Starting your workout routine with a fast-tempo, blood circulating dynamic warm up may not only help boost energy but will help prevent injuries caused by low energy, low focus workouts.
