    Best Time To Workout

    I've been hearing alot of different things about when is the best time to workout. I feel like i can do more in the morning after I have had breakfast. I have heard from other that its better to go later in the day when you have had more meals in you.

    Go whenever you personally feel you can give it your best. For some it might be first thing in the morning. For others it might be later at night. There is no one right answer.

    Well everyone knows that working out later in the day is always better. for example:

    For most people, body temperature and hormone levels peak at 6 pm. Exercising 3 hours before or after the peak will give your your best workout for both endurance and building muscle.
    Research shows lung function is best at 4-5 pm.
    Muscles are warm and flexible.
    Perceived exertion is lowest - how hard you feel yourself to be working at exercise. So you may be able to work out harder or faster by doing so in the afternoon.
    Can help regulate the amount of food you feel like eating for dinner.
    Stress relief after a day at work, school, or home.
