The Best Time of Day to Work Out Might Surprise You. By Editor_wr On Oct 2, 2019. You squeeze in a workout whenever your schedule allows, racing to a morning spin class, power walking at lunch or hopping on the treadmill after the sun goes down. While there is never a wrong time to exercise, there might be advantages to working out at certain times of the day. Well, that depends on when’s the best time for you, because the benefits of physical activity depend upon how consistent you are.

You might have heard that the best time to exercise is early in the morning — to get your metabolism going or to avoid unexpected distractions during the day that could derail your workout. But if you’re not a morning person, it may not work for you to try to get up at. The Best Time of Day to Work Out Might Surprise You You squeeze in a workout whenever your schedule allows, racing to a morning spin class, power walking at lunch or hopping on the treadmill after the sun goes down. While there is never a wrong time to exercise, there might be advantages to working out at certain times of the day.

Working out in the morning — especially on an empty stomach — is the best way to burn stored fat, making it ideal for weight loss. If you’re not a professional athlete, it might be best to get that workout out of the way in the morning, when there are fewer distractions around to kick your plan off course. Studies show you’re.

Between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., your body temperature is at its highest. This may mean you’ll be exercising during the window of time your body is most ready, potentially making it the most effective. When you’re first starting out, try doing cardio in the morning and weight training in the evening. This schedule seems to work best if you work a typical day shift and sleep during the overnight hours. Also, pay close attention to your nutrition and recovery.

Both are critical to your success when you work out two times a day. For some people, lunchtime is the best time to exercise, especially if co-workers keep you company. Just be sure to eat after you work out, not before.

If you can’t swing mornings, try fitting in your workouts on weekends or during a weekday lunch hour when your local gym is less crowded. Even if you can only sacrifice 20 minutes mid-afternoo.

However, at around 5 p.m., your cardiovascular efficiency, body temperature, muscle repair, protein synthesis, and workout-recovery capability peak, so this is an even better time of day to exercise, especially if your workout is intense.

Often the best time to work out is the first thing in the morning.

Those who find it difficult to move in the morning may be further motivated by the following fact: When exercise is performed in the morning before breakfast (i.e., after an all-night “fast”), the body automatically burns off stored fat to derive the necessary calories to perform the exercises.

I like to exercise in the morning because there is less chance that something is going to prevent me from working out, as so often happens when you schedule exercise later in the day.

Mornings at our house are usually chaotic and unpredictable, which is why I’ve learned that if I leave my workout prep stuff until the morning, it does not work.

My experience has been that the best time of day for your workouts is some time between three and six in the afternoon.

Not only that, but the best time of day to work out is often whatever time of day you are not currently working out, the best length of time for an HIIT cardio workout is anything shorter or longer than what you are currently doing, and the best sport for shedding pounds is whatever sport you are not currently playing.

Some people prefer to work out before breakfast, and others work out at midday or after work.

According to Power Sleep author James Maas, the best time to schedule a workout is around the noon hour or late afternoon, with morning exercise having the least effect on sleep quality.

  • Sean, how many times per week do you usually recommend, for an average guy?
    I’m going 6x/week, but I’m not sure if it’s really that much superior/worth it

  • I agree when I get home from work, I don’t want to do nothing. Sometimes my husband has to drag me to the gym. Our Gym time is very late in the evening, but because there is less people and we are able to do more. But lately we haven’t gone to the gym because of my laziness.

  • I only workout if I have written understanding that if anyone comes within 30 feet of me, I will kill them dead at their expo. Non-negotiable. Think about it.

  • I’m a tree climber between climbing rigging and cutting tree’s down I’m way beat by the time I’m off so I get up at 5am and lift for an hour and half!

  • Was it just me or did anyone else also try to clean the smudge in the upper left quadrant from the monitor because you thought it’s on your display?:D
    Anyway for me, late afternoon works best for me, because I have the most energy. I can’t work out in the morning because I’m on a fast and I feel that I don’t have enough energy and get dizzy fast:/.

  • Thank you Lada for this amazing monthly forecast about Cancer. Transit Mars in Aries in my 10 house make opposition with my natal conj.Saturn 28°/Pluto 26° in Libra so I try to prepare my self for difficult situations(conflicts,maybe fight with bosses, authority people or with my husbund,because Saturn rules 7 house…partner) so I need manage this…

    Lada you are amazing always…

  • I’m a night owl, I use to train at late afternoon, but this week I’m changing my training schedule to after breakfast. What do you think of that as a way to stress the body a little bit?

  • Useful info as always! For me, willpower is the most important factor. If I feel that I am not mentally or physically ready for resistance training or cardio, I would rather skip it and train later or next day for a better workout.

  • I work 3rd shift from 10pm til 6am. I sleep from about 6:30am til about 2pm. I usually hit the gym around 3pm. Obviously, I don’t have a normal schedule. I just started this new job about a month ago and I’m trying to get back into my workout routine again. What’s your opinion about working a 3rd shift job and trying to maintain a workout schedule? I mean, I technically am working out in that 2-9pm range you’re referring to but that’s basically “morning” for me haha.

    Thanks in advance and keep up the awesome videos!

  • I work overnight from 10pm 6am. I almost always feel less motivated in the gym if I go after work and have a lesser quality workout. I prefer to wake up at about 4pm on days I work and workout around about 5pm for best results which is technically the morning for me. On my days off any time will do as I don’t have the post work frustrated and annoyed mood.

  • Well said!

    However, getting enough quality sleep is essential to waking up fully energised and having a high productivity day.
    Sleep experts tell us that going to bed around 10 pm and sleeping around 8 hours through the night is ideal.

    Living a night owl life style is not sustainable long term as a result of poor sleeping quality.

  • this video was awesome!!but I’m still gonna do my exercises in the am….so far I lost 70 pounds!!so that’s it doesn’t matter what time you exercise!just get it in period!!����

  • Is it ok if you don’t have an exactly training session time? I know it’s not good for your body if you train in the morning and in the next day in the evening. But I mean, training somewhere between 1-3p.m. everyday?

  • I found this information very vague. What time of the evening are they referring to? After dinner? If so, how long after dinner? I exercise first thing in the morning and that has been working great for me, I have lost over 50 pounds and have been able to stay on track with this schedule. I had tried different times of the day in the past and was not able to keep it going consistently.

  • I worked out for the first time today in a long time and worked out for 30 minutes. Not a lot, but it’s a start. I worked out in the afternoon since I know I’m not a morning person.

  • hey matt…what you take on coomining cc with weight lifting…i like the cc and the whole calisthenics mentality about tension and low tech training but i don’t really know how that mentality can carry on to weight lifting as i come from a bad bodybuiling experience…greetings

  • Hey Matt, I have a question. In the powerlifting world, there’s a sort of “rule” that states the difference between an advanced trainee and a beginner-intermediate one. It says that, the more advanced and proficient you become at the big three movements, the less variation, volume, and even frequency you’ll need. Basically there’ll come a point in which you’ll only need to do your main movements, and really nothing more. But a beginner-intermediate will benefit from more exercise variations, volume, and frequency as he or she builds a strength base. Do you think this applies to the calisthenics world as well? For example, should one who’s starting in calisthenics do more than just pull-ups, like supplement the movement with rows, bodyweight curls, etc? Or could one get away with minimalist training, and only do the big six?

  • Sean, you appear to be one of the few who understands this science. None of my doctors have a clue. I know I am asking a lot but wonder if you might be able to make some suggestions.
    I am not a healthy young male as being studied in all these studies. I am a previously ridiculously strong and healthy woman who, at menopause, gained 60 pounds of belly fat over 3 months when I lost my protective estrogen. I am now 61, and still working out. I see the study that young guys get more muscle working out in the afternoon than in the morning, unless they have a couple cups of coffee in the morning REVERSING their circadian rhythms of testosterone, cortisol and growth hormone (wow!). (April 4, 2012 Epub). The December 2016 study that has everyone changing from morning to evening training says hormone levels remained “statistically unaltered” but their definition of relevance has to be wrong because there WAS a difference in muscle gain based on the time of training. All the fat loss gurus stress exercise in a morning fasted state to take advantage of fat releasing properties of early morning cortisol, but with the result of unnaturally hiking cortisol and growth hormone. Since 55, my fat loss, muscle gain and recovery time have been changing for the worse. I have to get rid of this belly fat as it is already hiking my blood numbers in the wrong direction. I am thinking that I might try to ration my bursts/resistance into short increments over the course of the day as my circadian rhythm can not afford to be jerked around. Any ideas?? I know you work with a different demographic, but I am desperate for any help. Thanks.

  • He did not say when to workout before eating or after eating or in afternoon evening nothing he just said why we need to exercise but the video was tiltle best time to workout ������

  • The best combo for me is:

    1) Fasted AM walking Doesn’t require focus and by the end you feel rejuvenated.
    2) Lifting in the late afternoon/early evening Gives you time to mentally prepare/focus for heavy lifts.

  • Beginneraiming Recomposition, 65 kilos, 5’9″. 25 years, around 15 %
    Can I benefit with calisthenics?
    Max pushups10.
    3* a week. Full body. 20 sets total. Would work fine?
