I’m back from China – where I get up early each day and exercise.
This prompts the question: When do you train when you’re back in the U.S. – on a different time zone.
Answer: When I get up in the morning.
Being I usually arise sometime between six and nine a.m. – the time varies – but the habit doesn’t.
I believe as the Chinese do, that exercise in the early morning is best. That’s when the cosmic chi is strongest – it’s also when the world is the quietest.
At the same time I realize that many people won’t exercise at all if I am inflexible in my approach. And so, if afternoon or evening works better for you – you’re far better off training at those times as opposed to not at all.
In fact, if you train first thing in the morning – and do something else later in the day, you’ll progress even faster and feel better, too.
And so, if you’re reading this email and you haven’t done anything physical yet, other than shower and brush your teeth, then drop down and do a set of Hindu pushups and a round of Hindu Squats. It’ll make a difference in how you feel the rest of today – guaranteed.
