Morning vs. training night
Training in the morning or at night? A question that always and at all times is in everyone’s mouth.
There are no studies or researches that support the advantages of training at one moment or another of the day, so which is the best moment? There is no adequate answer.
It really depends on the preferences of each person and above all the free time to go to train. However, there are some positive and negative aspects depending on the time you train.
Training in the morning
Helps you stay conscious
If you have trouble following an exercise routine as a general rule, training in the morning may be the best option.
Quite a few people have a hard time finding time to go training. So, if it is done first thing in the morning, even before you have to do each and every one of the duties of the day, you will not encounter each and every one of the obstacles that may arise throughout the day and that prevent you from going to do the training.
The body is rested.
When sleeping, the body uses that time to recover from the previous day and gather energy for the one to come.
Throughout sleep muscles are repaired and the moment you wake up your body is fresh and ready to train. As is logical this state depends on the quality of sleep. To have a good quality of sleep you have to make sure you go to sleep at a reasonable time and with each and every one of the electronic devices, such as mobile phone and TV, at least an hour before going to bed.
Finally, it is essential to remember that you have to warm up before you start training to warm up and prepare your muscles.
Training with less fuel
Let’s face it, many of us aren’t people in the morning no matter how hard we try. But it is also true that on many occasions when you arrive home late, exhausted and sleepy, the last thing you want is to exercise.
The whole planet is different and this is where personal preferences come into play. If you get tired in the morning, you probably won’t be able to give a hundred percent in training. And there are people who if they have exercised in the morning, at the time of eating can not even lift the fork how tired they are. So it is essential to know ourselves and what information our body gives us, while it is the one that affirms us as the best moment to train it.
Training in the afternoon or evening
Awake and ready to go
Although the body is more rested and prepared in the morning, it may be better prepared for an afternoon training.
In general the body is more awake in the afternoon as a result of the activities each day that have been done, and by the meals that have been done, has more energy than the first hour of the morning, that the body has little comburent.
Many people prefer to train in the afternoon because they feel they have more energy than in the morning. This may be true due to the fact that strength and endurance levels are thought to be higher throughout 16:00 – 18:00 hours.
Helps remove stress
When you exercise in the morning it’s really possible that you’re more relaxed, because you haven’t started the day’s routine yet and you haven’t faced any incidents of the day. However, in the afternoon you may be more overwhelmed, either by the fact that you’ve had a hard day at work or school, or simply because you’ve had some annoying or uncomfortable situation throughout the day.
Exercising is one of the best ways to remove the burden, suppress the bad moments, worries of the day and helps to see things more clearly. So, training in the afternoon is very advantageous for each and every one of those people who need to let off steam. In addition to this endorphins are generated, which is the hormone of bliss!
In conclusion, there is no adequate answer when it comes to training in the morning or in the afternoon. As mentioned before, everything depends on your personal preferences and what works best for you and your body.
Remember that regardless of whether you exercise in the morning or in the afternoon, it is essential to exercise. And this is so much better than doing nothing.
It doesn’t matter what time of day you are going to train, but rather to integrate exercise into your daily routine and become aware of having a healthier life.
