At what time of the day do you typically exercise? Are you a morning type? If not, you may decide to switch up after learning all the pros for exercising in the morning. Not all of us are morning people, at least for me just the thought of getting up earlier than usual and being ready to exercise seems close to impossible. But studies have shown that the best time for a workout is in the morning and here’s why.
1- A More Relaxed Less Crowded Environment
If you exercise at a local gym, you know that the gym is super crowded after work hours. Exercising in a less crowded environment allows you to perform your daily exercise routine just the way you need it and a lot more relaxed. You will not have to wait for your turn to use a particular gym device which can interrupt your routine.
2- Level of Hormones
The level of hormones needed to build muscle is higher in the morning. Therefore, a morning exercise will be a lot more effective on your body than an evening exercise.
3- Less Prone to Skip Your Training
If you finish your workout in the morning, you won’t have to worry about sudden change of plans during the day that would make you skip your workout if your exercise routine is in the evening.
4- Faster Metabolic Rate
Exercise boosts your metabolism, therefore, if you workout in the morning you will burn more calories and speed up your metabolism.
5- Better Mood
Some workouts release “feel-good” hormones (endorphins). What better than to start of your day feeling good? This will make you happier and more productive throughout the day.
