A Morning Workout For People Who Hate Mornings

Starting your morning with a bit of movement is a great way to get your body and mind prepared for the day ahead. If you aren’t really a morning person or just want to ease into a morning workout routine, a quick and simple bodyweight circuit is definitely the way to go. One of the best parts about the following circuit is the fact that you can squeeze it in between brushing your teeth and hopping in the shower. For this workout, complete each move for the required number of reps before moving to the next. Repeat the circuit 2-3 times before starting your day.

Wall sit: Stand with your back pressed against the wall. Keeping your abs contracted, slide down the wall into a squat position with your thighs parallel to the ground. Hold for 30-90 seconds, then return to your starting position. Bonus points for brushing your teeth during this exercise!

Bicycle crunches: Lie down on your back and put your hands behind your head with your elbows out wide. Lift your legs and shoulders slightly off the floor. Bring your right knee toward your chest as your left elbow crosses your body to meet your knee. Return your leg to a straight position as you bring your left elbow back to its starting position. Repeat using your left leg and right elbow to complete one rep. 20 Reps.

Lunges: Stand straight up with your feet about shoulder width apart. Take a large step backward and lower your body until your front and back knees are both at a 90 degree angle. Make sure your front knee is directly above your ankle and your back knee doesn’t touch the floor. Push yourself back up, keeping your weight in your heels. Repeat with the other leg to complete one rep. 20 Reps.

Push ups: Get into plank position with your hands a little wider than shoulder width apart. Your legs and torso should form a straight line. Slowly lower your chest to the floor before pushing your palms into the ground to return to your original position. That’s one rep. 10 Reps.

This simple morning workout uses your body weight for resistance, which makes it easy to complete just about anywhere. Whether you’re at home or on the road, making time for fitness is always a good idea.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
