Everyone has their opinion. Some people swear by working out in the mornings, while others think nightime is where it's at. Research has found evidence to support both stances, so which one is 'correct?' Well, that depends on you and your personal preferences. With that in mind, there are positive and negatives associated with both. Have a look:

Morning Workouts

Helps with consistency: If you have a difficult time sticking with workouts, mornings may be perfect for you! Many people find it difficult to make time for workouts and so if you do it first thing in the morning, it is out of the way and you don't have to worry about any obstacles that might pop up. Besides, who needs the stress of worrying about how you will fit in that workout? Your body is rested: When you are sleeping, your body is repairing and recovering from the day. Your muscles repair during sleep and so when you wake up, you should be feeling fresh and ready to go. This depends, of course, on the quality of your sleep. Aim to get between 7-9 hours a night and be sure to turn off all electronics at least an hour before bed! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvayTjck1HA Your running on less fuel and might get tired later: No matter how hard we try, some of us just aren't morning people. If you are one who is up late, getting out of bed early is just not doable. If you can't give your workout 100% in the morning, you're better off finding a time of day when you can.

Evening/Night Workouts

You're awake and ready to go: While you are refueled in the morning, your body may be better prepared later in the day. Aside from gaining energy from daily activities, you've also probably had a meal or two and that helps. Many people feel like they have more energy when they work out later in the day and this could be because your strength and endurance levels are believed to be at their highest between 4 and 6 p.m. It can help you destress: Working out in the morning can make you feel relaxed because you've got it finished and out of the way but that could also leave you without a release later on. If you've had a particularly stressful day, blowing off a little steam with some sweat is a good thing. And exercise releases endorphins which are happy-making hormones and so it will pick you up when you're feeling down. When all is said and done, there is no clear winner. It all depends on what works for you, your body and your schedule. Remember, whatever time of day helps you make exercise a regular part of your life is the correct time of day to exercise!
