There is no better way to begin a day than with a morning workout. For those who are trying to actively negotiate with their busy schedules to accommodate a workout regimen, early mornings are the best time to do so. Not only do you have a fresh mind in the morning but are yet to be cumbered by the activities of the day. So, try not to hit the snooze button on the alarm, wake up on time and get started on your morning workout. It is sure to have you feeling energetic for the rest of the day.

If you are a beginner, here are a few crucial exercises you shouldn’t miss out on:

1. Squats

Stand with your feet apart, such that the gap between them matches the width of your shoulder. Stretch your arms flat in front of you, again in line with your shoulder. Push your hips downwards so that your butt is in line with your knees.

2. Planks

Get into a press up position and rest your elbows on the ground in a way that your entire weight lies on your forearms. Hold it for a few seconds.

3. Crunches

Lie down so that your fingers are locked behind your head and your feet are on the floor, hip width apart. Scrunch your core muscles so that you can raise your body waist up a few inches off the ground.

4. Jumping Jacks

Stand with your legs apart at a shoulder width distance, and arms stretched out on the side. Jump so as to bring your feet together while joining your stretched hands above your head.
