    Best time to workout?


    What's your guys favorite/best times to workout? I'm talking lifting weights, obv cardio upon rising in the am on a cut. I'm bulking and prefer lifting around 5-6 at night what do you guys think?

    I lift from 3-5. And i like it alot. It's really easy for me to get the amount of protein i need after that time since i am not in school.

    best time for what?

    for you, whenever you can do it consistently.

    for strength/size, the russians studied this actually. i dont remember the details but memory wants to tell me that it was around 10am, then 3pm was a close second. im sure if you google it you can find more info.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Me too. My PWO is Craze and Hemavol, which makes me feel great throughout the rest of the day, but gives me time to get the Craze out of my system before bed.

    I agree 100%. I get to the gym between 5:30 and 5:45 every morning. Starts the day off great, no one is hogging the equipment, and the douchebag factor is as low as it can get.

    That's funny ****!

    I have to go after work and after the kids go to bed - lift, eat, sleep. I like it like that but my favorite time is on the weekend... Breakfast, lift, lunch, nap... Good stuff.

    Directly after work, 5:15.

    I take a protein shake with DAA + Creatine + Pre-Workout at 4:30 so that I'm ready to go when i'm out of work.

    I hit the gym every weekday at 0500.

    Reason is ... I can workout from 5-7, and then get cleaned up to go to work. After work, I have to get my daughter from school and I'm too tired to work out at that point.

    Other IMPORTANT reasons - testosterone is highest in the am after you wake up. There's no idiot's in the gym at 0500 ... only old people and a few MILFS (which are nice to look at between sets).

    Go in there in the afternoon - you can't even find a parking space and, the inside of the gym is filled with young people who are in there "socializing" and trying to pick up chicks. No thanks.

    ^^^ain't that the truth.

    Same here but I got use to waking up at 430 and working out since Uncle Sam voluntold me ever since I joined the military. It's a great way to start the day and you know that you got your workout in and no worries at the end of the day about it.

    My favorite time to go is in the afternoon. Like the OP, I absolutely love having had some food in me before I lift. I went a while trying to lift in the AM but found myself totally gassed literally 20-30 minutes into a workout. Not for me, thanks.

    I currently go to the gym betwee 6-7pm, but I would much rather always go at 430-5. Any later is not that fun, but sadly that's when I've been able to make it to the gym the past 3 months.

    Best time is really up to you and your schedule. I used to do afternoons, but my scheduled doesn't allow that anymore so now I have to do 8am. I'm not a morning person but I've adjusted and find that it's a great start to the day.

    Id say whenever schedule permits. With that said my current usual time is 4:30pm to about 6pm now. Get in sometime between then and lift for an hour and a half. Then let the feeding begin.
