    which one is correct ?

    Which or the following usage is correct?
    Or both of them are correct but they have different meanings?

    каждое утро я выбегу на прогулку.

    каждое утро я буду выбегать на прогулку.

    Why only the second one is correct ?

    Выбегу is a one-time action.

    Re: which one is correct ?

    "Bыбегу" is a perfective verb. It doesn't mix very well with repetitive action ("every morning" bit).

    каждое утро я выбегу на прогулку ~ I will have run every morning
    каждое утро я буду выбегать на прогулку ~ I will run every morning

    "Я выбегу на прогулку до завтрака" (one time action - for example, tomorrow)
    "Я буду выбегать на прогулку до завтрака" (repetitive action - for example, for a month)

    The first very general rule you learn when studying the aspect of verbs in Russian is that "Perfective verbs denote single, completed actions, whereas Imperfective verbs denote incomplete, or continuous actions."

    Therefore if you use an expression in a sentence that expresses repetition (e.g., always, every day, monthly, daily, every summer), you usually have to use imperfective verbs, because perfective verbs denote one-off actions:

    Каждое утро = every morning.
    This is a statement of repetition, so you have to use the IMPERFECTIVE future (я буду + Imp. Infinitive):
    Каждое утро я буду выбегать на прогулку.


    Завтра утром я выбегу на прогулку.
    Because "tomorrow morning" is a specific, one-off time, you can use the perfective future here, because it is expressing a single action that isn't repeated.

    Oo, careful, Grommy, the phrase "I will have run every morning" is perfectly possible in English (albeit it pretty rare), so not good proof that "каждое утро я выбегу на прогулку" is not correct.

    Or can it actually be used like that??

    Yes, it is actually possible, if the finite interval of time is implied. For example:

    Если в этом месяце я каждое утро выбегу на прогулку, мне дадут печеньку.

    Если я отвечу на каждый вопрос на этом форуме, мне дадут две.

    This is single mission which consists of multiple repetitive actions.

    Ok. I tried to show a difference between perfective and imperfective aspects, I didn't mean the (English) phrase is impossible. But anyway thanks for the additional info (Полуночник, тебе тоже). Future Perfect something is still a mystery to me.

    PS. Pleeeese, don't call me Grommy. It reminds me of Gromit. Not that I don't like him, but still...

    You've changed the meaning. That's the present tense, your initial sentence was in the future.

    If you conjugate a PERFECTIVE verb you get the PERFECTIVE FUTURE.

    Завтра я выбегу на прогулку.
    Tomorrow I will go for a run. (Future)

    To make the IMPERFECTIVE FUTURE you conjugate the verb быть and then leave the imperfective verb in the infinitive:

    Каждое утро я буду выбегать на прогулку.
    Every morning I will have a run. (Future)

    If you conjugate an imperfective verb you get the PRESENT tense.

    Каждое утро я выбегаю на прогулку.
    Every morning I go for a run. (Present)

    TATY and Полуношник: thank you very much!! Another little bit of the Russian language puzzle solved!

    gRomoZeka: sowwy... - I won't do it again I was just trying to find something shorter for my poor sore fingers to type.... I'll just stick to copy and paste, OK?

    PS: I admit it does sound a bit like Gromit. BUT: I adooooooooooore Gromit!!! One of the best actors around, these days!! AND he's won an Oscar!

    Okaaay, now I feel guilty for exhausting you and poor Kalinka by making you type my full nick. I'll try to think of a way out.
    In the meantime feel free to shorten itin any way you like. )
