One argument that seems to have lasted as long as time itself is whether it is better to work out in the morning or in the evening. Both have their pros and cons, with the former stating it wakes them up and getting them ready for the day, while the latter suggests that working out in the evening is a great way to relieve stress after a day’s work. .
Two of Hollywood’s main strongmen – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Mark Wahlberg – appear to be siding with the emerging contingent. However, for many, working out in the morning would mean hitting the weights between 5 and 6 a.m. before heading to work. Not so with Dwayne and Mark, who recently took to Instagram in separate posts, showing their commitment to pumping iron at 2 a.m.
Mad? Perhaps. Beneficial? Almost certainly.
The Rock is no stranger to insane workouts and inspirational advice, and his recent post might provide food for thought for those who think you shouldn’t even consider waking up until at least 9 a.m.
“If you are tired – I understand 100% it’s 2 am – and I am tired too, but we have to fight this fatigue and start our week on a positive rise which gives us momentum for the rest. of the week. . “
“Granted, I have a very healthy ‘obsession’ with winning on Mondays and I always finish strong. Gives us an amazing and silent psychological edge to have a successful week.
His words are in the same vein as the advice previously regaled by Joe Rogan, who spoke of an “inner bitch”. The inner voice in his head telling him to stop, but a voice he has to mentally overcome to reap the rewards.
The Rock certainly has some physical hurdles to overcome, as shown in his video, with calluses the size of small mountains (although he claims them sexy), “Fight back, get your victory on Monday – and calluses are sexy AF. ” Although they paler from his previous workouts which caused him to bleed.
Mark Wahlberg is also enjoying the benefits of getting things done early. Visibly sweaty and exhausted, Mark says he walked into the gym at “2:30 a.m. on a Monday” where he took on the role of fitness coach, explaining that his trainee had run “15,000 yards on the rower. in 80 minutes ”.
While he may have coached someone else in this instance, Mark is a regular early riser as YouTuber Laurie Shaw once discovered when he attempted Mark’s insane training regimen. Usually, the one who wakes up at 2:30 a.m. and has had their first meal at 3:15 p.m., achieving a body of Mark’s stature (impressive, considering he’s approaching 50) is the one that requires incredible commitment. .
Get up and take it.
