Peter Crouch joins the 5am club as a poll of finds early risers complete an average of six tasks before 7am


Watch Peter Crouch take on an extreme morning routine - from a 20-minute ice bath to multiple gym sessions. Social media is now filled with ‘Get Ready With Me’ style content, often consisting of the '5am club' morning routine.

But Crouchy puts some of the more unusual and demanding tasks to the test, to see if they are sustainable on an everyday basis. It comes as a poll of 2,000 adults found early risers complete an average of six tasks before 7am - including workouts, meditation and vacuuming.

The research was commissioned by Alpro, which has expanded its range of Plant Protein with protein drinks and alternatives to yoghurt. The study also found 45 per cent describe themselves as a 'morning person' and 56 per cent of them don't even need to set an alarm.

This early start is often due to having so much to fit in - from walking the dog, making breakfast and getting the kids ready for school. More than half (64 per cent), who want to improve their morning rituals, wish they had more energy, while 36 per cent would like to get more exercise in.

Of those who enjoy morning time, 25 per cent do so because they can get lots done and 21 per cent said everything feels quiet and still. However, more than a third of all respondents (36 per cent) said they struggle to find a tasty breakfast that suits their routine and sets them up for the day.

With toast (30 per cent), cereal with dairy milk (29 per cent) and a cup of tea (26 per cent) the go-to breakfasts to have. Almost half (45 per cent) don’t think their current breakfast choice includes a lot of protein, but 25 per cent would be interested in eating more protein-rich meals if it’s important to their diet. But of those who took part in the study by OnePoll.com, 47 per cent are unsure of the daily recommended amount.

A spokesperson for Alpro, which has partnered with nutritionist Jenna Hope to create quick and easy breakfast recipes with plant protein (https://go.alpro.com/uk/protein), said: “We believe everyone deserves to start the day with a healthy, tasty and nutritious breakfast.

“Our research found that a staggering majority of the nation believes protein is an important addition to their diets, we have seen a lack of plant protein options at breakfast time. We want to make protein more accessible to consumers and provide new ways to enjoy fuss-free breakfast products for any morning routine - no matter what it looks like.”
