I don't work out in the morning without coffee.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "take" - are you looking for a supplement?

The best thing you can do is eat a healthy, nutrient-filled breakfast. Fruits and veggies are great. If you're not big on eating, a big glass of orange juice or a protein shake can give you t he quick energy boost you're looking for.

Avoid supplements and pills; they're usually not worth the potential side effects, and often don't do anything!

Before I retired, I used to exercise in the morning before work. I had a WHOLE BUNCH of exercise videos and used to alternate them every day. I never had any energy either first thing in the morning (still don't), but I set everything up the night before, so I would have to walk by it in the morning on my way for a cup of coffee. Most days I was still half asleep as I stood in front of the TV. However, once the warm up started, I began to get more energy. By the time I was 5 minutes into the video, I was fully awake and energized. Knowing that I would get the energy a couple of minutes into the video, motivated me enough to start it.

I would like to get in a quick workout in morning. I get up at 5am and have to be at work at 7:00. Does anyone have any suggestion of what I can take to increase my energy level so I can get a good workout in.
