Best Morning Workout Routine
Remember: eggs, then legs. Eating
breakfast before exercising in the morning could boost your mood and your
memory, says a new British study.
When 12 men followed that routine in the
morning, their measures of information processing, reaction time, mental
fatigue, and tension all improved significantly-some by as much as 50 percent-compared
to mornings when the guys exercised but skipped breakfast, or ate breakfast and
Working out in the morning isn’t for
everyone. Studies have shown some night
owls are better off hitting the gym in the afternoon or evening. But if
you prefer to get sweaty before tackling the day, preworkout grub increases
your stores of glucose and glycogen-two forms of dietary energy your brain
needs to stay upbeat and focused after exercise, says study coauthor Rachel
Veasey, Ph.D., of Northumbria University.
While the guys in Veasey’s study ate 1/3 cup
of carb-heavy oatmeal and 12 ounces of low-fat milk, studies show a wide range
of foods can power your brain in the morning. Protein sources like eggs, Greek
yogurt, and polyphenol-rich nuts are particularly
effective brain boosters.
