Whats your morning routine?
i've been thinkering with my morning habits and rituals for some time, seeking the ultimate day starter

i go to work and college after noon so i dedicate my mornings to work myself

usually starting at 7-9 hours

right now im on Intermittent fasting + keto diet (lost 8 kg so far and six pack is on the way) so i don't eat by morning, i just shug 2 liters of water right away to stop my stomach ache, take my chromium picolinate+240mg caffeine pill
then i do some myotatic crunches (one of the only abs exercise that works with full range of motion) to work my core

[Image: 1866lk4qf1snkjpg.jpg]

some lying leg extension,my knee is fucked up so i gotta strengthen my legs to walk correctly, i cant walk,jog or squat after waking up, for now

then ill go play the guitar (death metal on high volume)for a half hour, do some breathing and speech exercise from the zen of screaming dvd (one of the best vocal lessons on extreme singing out there)




I'll sing and play some soft songs to warm up and proceed to scream my lungs out(with proper technique)with heavier music, i usually start with this one, it pumps my T levels to the roof




starting the day with music helps me tap into my inner selfbeast (in contrast to my previous lame habit of waking up and running to facebook and feeling like shit afterwards) singing works my core and sets my speech to a more deep, dominant and confident tone for the rest of the day, its also very enjoyable and im a lot more productive

i finish the music ritual with some brief meditation, focusing heavily on my breathing

that took like 2 hours and half and im ready for the day
i work out at night so i dont go heavy on the exercises by morning, its more about tuning my psychology to a desired state of mind, since i always wake feeling wimpy and weak

working out by morning would be awesome but while im on IF(intermittent fasting) thats not possible
I can't work out by morning and only eat by 7 to 8 p.m

also i don't read or write to much until night, with the exception of checking out http://www.dangerandplay.com (Mikecf is a big influence)

RE: Whats your morning routine?
In the morning if my face is a little puffy I'll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.

-------

Wake up, brush teeth, shower, couple of pushups and then breakfast.

Early in the morning, rising to the beat.
Light me up that cigarette and I strap shoes on my feet.

RE: Whats your morning routine?
I like to go without caffeine in the morning. Wake up, shower, get dressed. If I can get in the shower, I'm good to go. Grab some bacon and eggs on my way out and then something else when I get to the office.

If I'm really in need I'll have an americano in the afternoon, and then maybe another one before i go out. Try to go without caffeine in the morning it'll make you feel better once you get used to it.

Fuck, my former routine sounds miserable

Wake up
Stand in shower
Dress
Go to work

Literally, and everything was done in a rush as I would always be running late

RE: Whats your morning routine?
Yes singing is also a part of my morning routine. I also do some singing while running. Another good routine is reading, additionally reading loud it´s very good for calibrating the voice machine of the body. Workout, meditation and cold showers do not need further explanation. Yes and some humor stuff is very important one easily forgets that.

Hit snooze once or twice...this is where I derive my power
Shower...this is where I derive my virility
Get Dressed...this is where I define my style
Walk to work...this is where I derive my agility

RE: Whats your morning routine?
Wake up - usually 20 minutes or so before my alarm

Get up and sit on the floor and perform 3 rounds of Wim Hof breathing.

Do some bodyweight squats, maybe some pushups and dips to warm up my muscles followed by 15 minutes of deep stretching.

Shower, wash face, moisturize with oil free lotion, brush teeth with charcoal activated toothpaste & get dressed.

I used to eat heavily in the morning but I'm experimenting with eating fruit and drinking green juice in the morning right now to keep my energy up in the morning.

Also I've cut out coffee over the last few days to get out of the cycle of having energy in the morning but crashing around lunch when the sugar and caffeine wear off.
