the best time for exercising

Is there a preferred time to exercise?


The benefits of sports are many and varied, for that we find most people exercising.

But a daily regular exercise at a specific time, this is what makes it difficult for many people; so we find those who prefer morning exercise and other who like the evening exercise.

Now the question is” Is there a golden hour to exercise?”; let's find out what science says about the best time of day to exercise.

Exercising is important, no matter what time of day you do it, and there is no bad time to exercise in general, but the importance of the time depends on your goal from the exercise.

So let’s clarify what the science says about the morning exercise and the evening one.


Advantages of morning exercises:

*Anthony Hackney, professor in the Department of Exercise and Sports Science at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill says that exercising in the morning is the best way to burn stored fat; and the hormones in the morning work to support this goal, which makes it ideal for weight loss.

Also, the morning exercises before breakfast (With the need to drink water) make you derive your energy from your fat reserves, which helps you lose weight.

*One of the main health benefits of exercise is that it enables you to sleep more deeply and comfortably; where people who exercise in the morning tend to fall asleep faster than those who exercise later in the day.

*Sweating in the morning may also improve mental health and productivity throughout the day, since exercise is so helpful in reducing stress.

*The researchers also found that on the days when the participants exercised in the morning, their physical activity increased more throughout the day than on the days when they did not exercise in the morning.

Advantages of evening exercises:

If your daily schedule does not allow you to exercise in the morning you can do it in the afternoon or in the evening.

*Studies have found that afternoon exercises improve muscle function and strength, as well as increase endurance.

The body temperature is at its highest between two and six in the evening, the period when the body is most prepared for sports, which enhances muscle strength, enzyme activity, and endurance.

*The body's reaction speed increases in the afternoon and evening and this is important to do High-intensity interval training and reduces the chances of injury while doing exercises.


the bottom line is you can choose the best time for you, according to your goal from these exercises, and according to your daily schedule; but in general, there is no bad time in a bad sense.
