working out: morning or night?

  1. working out: morning or night?


    Opinions? i am currently doing morning but am thinking of switching to nights.


  2. I workout in the afternoon haha, but I have worked out both late at night and early in the morning...If I had to do either of those I would definitely go with night, because I feel like I have more drive and focus at night for some reason but that's just me.

  3. Well I prefer afternoon, because in the morning I'm too groggy to try and I dont like being up all night with the pump I get so I don't do night.

  4. Yeah i just got done and it is the end of my day. i was stronger on everything by about 10 to 20 lbs. weird so i am gonna be a night goer now.

  5. both ways have been studied and you are stronger at night. i w/o in the morning during the week though because of my lifestyle. if i had a choice, it would be at night......

    I would think this depends on what the individual does throughout the rest of the day.. I have a very active job, i workout after work, i still get great lifts in but i have to go home and rest for about an hour or so first. I think i would probably get even better lifts in of a morning if i went before work. However, i have never tried this so i cant really comment for sure..

  7. i forget where i read but it is optimal to have two meals b4 training and 8 hrs of rest... I usually have 1 meal b4 lifting and a preworkout and lift no about 10 hrs sleep when im off. I do great. Or i will lift at night with enough sleep and 3-4 meals downed and i do amazing...

    rest up and eat at least 2 meals b4 lifting for optimal results

  8. I heard it's better to split workouts in the morning and at night. I'm not sure though. I usually work out in the afternoon. I'm too sleepy in the morning and I get really lazy to go to the gym at night.

  9. Depending on the time of day morning is considered, I would have to say 11 is the best time for me. I have already had a big full breakfast and enough time to digest, I feel fully awake and roughly around 11 is when the brain is fully charged, so I get good concentration as well.

  10. I work outside and the heat sucks the life out of me. During summer I prefer AM before work as much as it sucks getting into the routine. Winter I prefer afternoon after work.

  11. Ideally I like to have at least a couple good meals in me before I lift, so afternoon/early evening for me.

  12. Evening....I feel weak as hell in the morning
