Anyone have suggestions for overcoming early morning lethargy/weakness?
A shit ton of stimulants?
Seriously though my body feels so much different in morning than at night and my warmups in the early morning are more intense. I may even throw in some box jumps before squats or deads just to wake up my hips because everything feels so tight.
