Motivation Trick

One trick that I’ve found that helps me stay motivated to go lifting early in the mornings is to have a shaker bottle pre-made by my bedside of a pre-workout supplement.

Examples of pre-workout supplements that I’ve used are:


Because these products have a moderate amount of caffeine (about a fourth of a venti Starbucks coffee) I get the immediate “lift” I need to jumpstart my morning workout, without it negatively impacting me (making me jittery) on an empty stomach.

Full disclosure: I HATE early morning lifts with a passion, but sometimes my schedule only allows for an early workout. This is the only way for me to trick myself into actually going.
