Knowing Best Time to Exercise

By Bojen Makhob

The question of the best time to exercise is a fascinating subject for one reason. There is research that suggests the best time to exercise, in general, is about six o'clock in the evening. This time of day is when your body rhythms, lung function, body temperature, and hormone levels are most conducive to good work out. Many people work out in the mornings, however, because of the demands of life. There are surveys that have been performed to support that statement. People basically do morning work-outs because they are more convenient or, if not in the morning, then during lunch time or breaks during the day. Additional information regarding the best time to exercise follows.

Your body temperature is at a low point about 3 hours before you wake up.

Energy levels and blood circulation are not optimum at that point. When you do your workout in the morning you have to get your biological clock to reset. It may cut into your sleep time and make you a little unhappy, but you will adjust and get used to it. After a while your new morning routine will feel normal. Research and studies show that those who work out earlier in the day rather than in the evenings after work are better able to do so consistently. People want to get it done and have the rest of the day for their regular responsibilities. Many people also find that it's easier to develop an exercise habit by working out in the morning. There are fewer interruptions and distractions when exercising in the morning. Because most of the world isn't outside at that time, this makes sense. To guarantee they get some exercise, many people are willing to get up a little bit earlier. That's impressive.

You do know that you need a healthy balance in your life. Life is too busy and hectic. Try to be flexible with yourself. It's more important not to give up on your program. Even if you need to vary your routines it's imoportant to do it. You are the only one who knows what will work. So just sit down and figure it all out, and then make a plan that you know you can do and stick with.

Your work day can be optimal opportunity for finding time to exercise. Change your habits during the day especially if you are not working.
