Hate getting up early and working out in the morning? This quick and easy morning workout may be perfect for you!

Many people prefer to get their workout completed first thing in the morning, and some research has found this is the best time of day to exercise. But what if you’re just not a morning person? Working out later in the day is fine as well, but if you put it off too long, you may end up skipping your workout more often than not. If you want to get your workout over with and get on with your day, this short morning workout session may be just what you’re looking for – even if you’re not a morning person!

This simple morning workout consists of 8 easy exercises to get you moving in the morning, rev up your metabolism, burn fat, and stretch and strengthen tight muscles – but without being too strenuous for those who have trouble getting going first thing in the morning. And you don’t have to get up extra-early to head to the gym – you can do these exercises right in your own living room!

To complete this workout, start with 10-12 reps of each move, then repeat for 12-15 reps, then do one final set of 15-20 reps of each exercise to wrap up your workout. At the end of this morning workout, you should feel refreshed, energized, and ready to handle anything that comes your way today!

Do these exercises, in order, and be sure to warm up gently before beginning, and cool down and stretch when you finish the circuit:

1. Hollow Body Hold

2. Single-Leg Glute Bridge

3. Reverse Oblique Crunch

4. Plank With Knee Tap
