Daylight Savings is here, and most of us are thinking, “Yeah! An extra hour of sleep!”

As much as you may want that extra hour, this could be your chance to finally get in a great morning workout.

Morning workouts are great because even though unexpected things come up throughout the day, they can’t affect your workout. Studies have shown that morning exercisers are more likely to stick with a routine, and this is probably part of the reason.

Another benefit? More energy! Ok, it might be difficult to get started after you have just rolled out of bed, but as you get into the workout you start to wake up. You are working out on a full night’s sleep (hopefully) instead of trying to push yourself through exercise after a tiring day at the office.

And there’s more. Morning exercise helps you sleep better, and this can help you if you are trying to lose weight. Not to mention you get a metabolism boost from the exercise as your start your day.

So yeah, that luxurious sleeping in feeling might be nice while it lasts, but wouldn’t it be better to get into the morning exercise routine?
