It’s the lifelong debate: Is it better to work out in the morning or at night? It turns out it really doesn’t matter. What matters is that you pick a time when you will be energized and less likely to be interrupted. We all have busy lives and sometimes it can be very tough to find time to work out.
Some reasons to work out in the morning are the fact that gyms may be less crowded in the early hours of the day, there are less chances of life getting in the way, and working out in the morning sets a healthy tone for the rest of the day. Some reasons to work out in the evening are the fact that you are already fueled for the day, it can be a great stress reliever, and you may not need as long of a warmup.
- Any time is a good time for exercise, whether it be evening or morning.
- If you dread the thought of going to the gym after a long workday, mornings might be a good option
- Exercise helps reduce stress and releases feel-good endorphins, so sweating it out after a crazy day can help you unwind
“While chances of a 7 A.M. breakfast date are pretty slim, post-work happy hours or late nights at the office have a way of derailing evening workout plans”
