Just wondering is there a right time to work out eg.. morning, afternoon ect because I had a busy day today and it's 00.23am now and I've just finished a workout. Might be an odd question but I'm new to this whole workout world and wondered if it's less effective at certain times I know it's late but I felt like I was cheating myself out of a workout and had to do it
Dont do it before bed, you need to rest at that
The best workout is the workout you actually do. Time is not important. It's totally on your own when you feel best. Me personally I am not into morning workouts - I lack at least 20% of power and stamina then. So most of the training I do happens between 06:00 pm and 01:00 am. And I don't have sleep problems at all.
And for the sleeping part: Yes, you may not be able to workout and then go to bed immediately, you will need some minutes - but then again you feel greatly relaxed and tired after hitting it hard: so it actually can prevent sleep problems.
I agree with the rest. The important thing is to do it, not when.
There is some research saying that for weight-loss working out in the morning on an empty stomach is the best, since it would continue to burn calories the rest of the day. As for me, casual to moderate weight training works on an empty stomach, intensive weight training and cardio doesn't. I still prefer to do it in the morning, having a snack before, since then I'm not gonna skip working out because of making up some excuse during the day or just procrastinate. But the more I work out, the more I find I end up doing it at any time of the day, simply because I want to.
IF you suffer from sleeping problems though it's not recommended to work out or in any way work yourself up physically or mentally for a few hours before bedtime.
