Best time to train
Benefits of training in the morning
When we decide to train, will depend largely on our daily obligations, so in most cases, people decide to train in the evenings or at night, but does it have any benefit doing it in the mornings? Should we choose this time of day to do our workouts?
Constancy: Training in the early hours of the morning requires a certain level of commitment and perseverance because you will need to get up early.
Less stress: Because as we mentioned above, most people choose evenings to train, we will find this time less stressful, whether we go for a run or train at the gym.
Exercising in the morning helps us to activate our body and give it an “energy injection” to face the rest of our journey.
Benefits of training in the evenings-nights
Training first thing in the morning has its benefits, but it does not mean that doing it in the afternoon or at night does not. We must learn how to choose according to our goals and our possibilities.
If we are going to train in the afternoon or at the end of the day, these are some of the benefits that we can have:
Night rest: Although it is not proven that this point is true, some studies suggest that training in the afternoon or at the end of the day can harm our rest. However, there are also studies that show this is a benefit since exercise can have a relaxing effect on our body.
Energy levels: If we have a balanced diet and a full supply of nutrients, then training in the afternoon or at the end of the day can help us take better advantage of our body’s energy deposits, which should be filled by the nutrients intake of our daily meals.
Stress and anxiety: Training in the evenings can help us to reduce the anxiety and stress levels produced by the workday and all the events that we have faced during the day.
So, at what time is it better to train?
Both, training in the morning and the evenings or at night have their advantages, so the most logical answer would be that the best time to train is the one that best suits your schedule.
