Hi all! I'm excited to be starting this challenge!

I'd like to fit my workout routine in early in the morning before I start work but I find it's almost impossible for me to get out of bed in time.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any good tips or advice for dragging their sorry butts out of bed in the morning?

Ideally I'd like to be starting my workout by 6am.

Thanks and good luck to everyone!

Morning Work outs are great! but can be hard. I can get in the routine for about week of moring workouts til i default back to evening. typicaly though its not due to lack of will it's holiday or morning tasks that get thrown at me last minute that makes me skip the morning and work out in the evening.
usually if i get up and work out, it helps if i didn't work out too late the night before, if i had to skip the morning prior. also, just typical common sense, go to bed 8 hours prior to the time you want to get up. even if you have to lay in bed awake for a bit before you sleep.

it's great that you're doing P90X, it's awsome. I'm on my second round of 90 days (day 114 of working out, no skipping) What ever you do don't skip a day of work outs, it's harder to got back to working out everyday than it is to make time in the evening if you miss the morning.

Good Luck!
Life is now! why waste it.

It depends on what time you're getting to bed and what time you have to make it to work. 1) My recommendation is to split the routine, if needed. When I did P90X, I did the abs after work. 2)Set out your workout clothes and equipment at night so that you can immediately begin after you hop out of bed.

Just finished plyometrics. Did Chest and back yesterday. Both nearly killed me... but I know it gets easier. Haven't managed a morning workout yet but I think that will get easier too... long as I stick with it.
