MORNING or EVENING Workouts for Weight Loss
Morning vs. Evening workouts which one is best for strength how about for size how about to lose weight well today I’m going to answer all of these questions so you can set up the best workout schedule for yourself. Now I’ve done both morning and evening workouts and each of these has their own benefit. And when you’re choosing what time in the day you’re going to work out it’s going to highly depend on your goals, for example, are you trying to build muscle, are you trying to burn fat or are you trying to just simply get a workout in rather than skipping it we’re pushing it off till tomorrow.
So let’s go over the benefits of working out in the morning first. When I first started working out I would work out pretty much only at night. But for the last, I would say 5 years I’ve been doing the exact opposite I’ve been working out first thing in the morning. Now there’s a big reason why I switched and I don’t really plan on switching back. The number one biggest benefit of working out in the morning is that you get your workout done. What do I mean by that? Well, I mean that especially as you get older and you have a job and you have all these other responsibilities it’s really easy to get caught up with your day and wind up not having the energy the willpower nor the desire to work out at night. What this does is it makes a lot of people that plan to work out after work or just simply towards the end of the day…it makes a lot of these people skip their workout with an excuse like I’m really tired today I’ll just get my workout in tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes and it’s the same thing all over again. The American Council on exercise claims that people that work out first thing in the morning tend to be more consistent with their workouts and they tend to work out more often than people that work out later in the day. If you procrastinate your workouts…. you have to……I repeat you have to get your workout in first thing in the morning. I’m saying before you even comprehend that you’re awake just get out of bed put your sneakers on going to the gym go for a run get your workout in because it’s not happening later.
The other huge benefit of getting a workout in first thing in the morning especially if you have a job is that it sets up the rest of your day very very well. I don’t even have the exact words to explain it but it just makes everything easier. You would think that working out before work would make you tired at work but in reality, it boosts your awareness your attitude and your overall emotional state. This isn’t just me saying this guy’s this is proven……working out releases endorphins and whether you’re going to class or you’re going to work you’re gonna perform better just because you worked out. Another benefit of working out in the morning is that you’re going to get a great full night of sleep when you hit those pillows. A lot of times when you work out at night your body goes from unwinding and starting to relax to a more active state. Combine this with some caffeine or some pre-workout to help you blast through your workout and you’re going to have a lot of trouble going to bed if you schedule that work out at night. Now, this benefit isn’t the same for everyone some people will experience better sleep quality working out at night rather than in the morning so This is highly up to your preference.
The last thing that I want to mention about morning workouts before I move on to nighttime workouts is that if you do a morning workout you can choose to do it in a fasted state. When working out in a fasted State your not gonna magically burn more calories but working out fasted causes an increase in fat mobilization which means that ultimately it can help you burn more fat than a nighttime workout. Okay so those are some of the benefits of working out in the morning…….now there are equally as many benefits for working out at night as there are for working out in the morning they’re just different. When I used to only work out at night I can say for a fact that I was always stronger in all of my lists whether it be squats bench presses whatever. Even though this is based on my personal experience there are studies that suggest that everyone’s body temperature will be higher later in the afternoon and at night than body temperature in the morning. in fact in the morning is when your body temperature is at its lowest. And there are plenty of studies documenting that athletes perform better when body temperature is higher.
