Due to workload, I switched to early morning workouts (~5am) four months ago. I’ve had to make changes since I liked squat/bench and deadlift/press twice a week in the evenings, but I now have less time and far less energy in the early morning - so I’m curious what others do that work out first thing.
Here is what I’ve changed so far:
-due to longer warmup time and less workout time (45 minutes after warmup), switch to 4 days per week
-3 week cycles only
-PRO 5s on everything
-3/5/1 on deadlifts, move in 10% increments instead of 5% (85%, 75%, 95%)
-increasing squats and deadlifts by 5lbs instead of 10lbs
I do two cycles of high rep accessory work and then 2 cycles of SST work. I do Airdyne and a rowing machine for warmups and conditioning on non-lifting days.
Will this work for a long term approach or am I missing obvious issues?
Are there any other adjustments made by early morning people on here?
