People always claim that certain times of the day are better for working out than others. The personal trainer in the gym wants you to workout in the mornings, while your coworker tries to persuade you that evening walks are even better for you. The good news is that you don’t have to listen to any of them!
It doesn’t matter what time you workout during the day as long as you’re doing it. The best way to determine what time to workout is to give each of them a try. Do a couple of days of morning workouts in a row and then switch to afternoons and then evenings. What time makes you feel the best afterwards? What time is the easiest for you to fit into your schedule on a routine?
The most important aspect is that you are finding a time in the day for your workouts that can fit into your schedule, can become a routine and makes you feel good. No pressure outside of those things. So give it a try and let everyone be different as long as we’re incorporating exercise into our healthy lifestyle!
