Timing Your WorkoutThe time of the day you workout can influence the kind of exercise you do and the gains you make!
- In the morning joints are at their stiffest! That makes warming up before working out especially important. But it's also important to note that your body's ability to build new muscle is greatest in the morning-- so that might be the best time for you.
- By mid afternoon, most of us experience a sort of mid-day slump -- especially if we don't eat lunch-- but a quick workout can still be effective.
- By the late afternoon and early evening your bodily functions are reaching an optimal level for an effective workout and the body seems to recover more quickly when you exercise between three and seven. You'll fall asleep faster too!
