Morning vs Evening?
The pros and cons of early and late working outs.
Early bird or night owl? No matter what you are, working out is a must during lockdown. The question now is what’s the best time to workout?
Morning or evening?
Well we know we have to be in by 9pm so midnight strolls or jogs are probably out. But let’s look at both morning and evening benefits. Morning benefits Generally, working out in the morning is better because it’s easier to commit to and get done before the day’s responsibilities can get in the way.

Working out at night can also increase energy, making it hard to fall asleep as the endorphins are
If you’re not a morning person, there are also advantages to working out later in the day. Take a look.
• Higher body temperature. Your body temperature is highest around 4 to 5 p.m. This is ideal because your muscles are already warmed up.
• Increased strength and endurance. Compared to the morning, your strength and endurance are higher in the afternoon.
• More workout buddies. It may be easier to find workout partners later in the day.
• Stress relief. After a long day, exercise can help you unwind and de-stress.
At the end of the day, it’s always best to exercise at the time of day that works best for you. Consistent exercise any time of day is better than inconsistent morning workouts. Courage!
