Unless you're part of the rare breed of people who actually live for their early-morning, calorie-crushing sweat sessions, you probably have had all of these thoughts before. Science tells us that sticking to a morning routine will change the way our brains react to the a.m., but that doesn't stop us from having mornings when we just can't even.
Check out the top 19 struggles every up-with-the-sun workout warrior has faced and tag a friend who can relate!
