A.M. time is the best time to work out, here’s why. Those who work out in the morning have a bigger benefit than those who work out during any other time of the day. Although it is easier to say that the best time to work out is morning, there are two parameters called Life and Time that have to be considered before choosing a time to exercise. So although you can workout at your convenience, let’s present to you a few reasons why we think it would be better for you to work out in the morning.
- More space, less people
Many people may think like you and visit the gym in the evening, after work. This leaves the gym fairly empty in the morning and you don’t have people waiting in the line to get the dumbbells you have or the machine you are using. You can also escape the evil looks people give you when you work on a machine for too long.
- Active hormones
The male hormone testosterone works at its best in the morning and hence it is the best time to build muscle mass. The functionality of the testosterone in the evening is at its lowest and hence high-intensity workouts must be avoided during this time.
- No other activities
One of the main reasons why people choose to work out in the morning is that they have no other commitments at that time. If you have the habit of going in the evening it might get affected due to personal or professional reasons; maybe you have to stay back to complete work or you may have to attend a relative’s birthday party. Another reason is that if you workout in the morning, you can spend the evening with your family.
- Better focus at work
Exercising improves your focus and enthusiasm for the next activity due to the release of happy hormones. If you work out in the morning the happy hormones will help you excel at work or college. Hence another benefit of morning workouts is alertness.
- No distractions
Even if you are sleepy, a cup of tea will help you get out of bed and go to the gym, there won’t be any distractions on the way. However, on your way to the gym in the evening, you may meet a friend and alter plans.
- Increased metabolism
Exercising increases the metabolic rate of the body and when done in the morning this rate remains high throughout the day, thus burning more fats.
