Re: Morning training routine
I train at 6 in the morning and do similar power lifting / strongman training... You've pretty much got the bases covered already IMO...
Just to add though, I've found that I need to take my warm ups more serious in the morning. I get up at 5:05 ish, nail a caffeine tab, drink a load of water, get dressed (Usually compression clothing and base layers for warmth) and then I'll start doing warm ups at home. Dynamic stuff like leg swings, body weight squats, lunges etc. Drive to the gym with the heaters on full blast, then once inside do more warm ups and slowly load the bars.
I need to get the blood pumping and my core temp raised, and this takes a while for me.
I would suggest if you're able, to have a nice hot shower too which should help warm you up... Sadly I'm unable as I tend to wake up the kids and nobody needs that at 5:30 before the gym haha.
I train fasted too, bar a caffeine tab, but I do tend to have a good meal before bed.
