Before answering your query, "Is it better to work out in the morning or at night?", let me point out one thing, exercising, irrespective of the time, location and duration it is done for, is extremely beneficial for one's physical and mental health. Yup! It's not just the body which becomes fit due to exercises, the mind too becomes relaxed and calm. So, if you are wondering which is the best time to exercise, one of the first tips that I can give you is that you choose a time which is suitable to you!

Is it Better to Work Out in the Morning or at Night - The Answer

These days, owing to our haphazard work timings, sometimes it is not possible for a person to schedule his exercises in the morning. There are many people, who exercise during late afternoons or even at night. However, at the back of their head, there is always this query, "Is it better to work out in the morning or at night?" So, here we will discuss the benefits of exercising in the morning, afternoon and night, which will help you decide your own best time to workout.

What your Body Says...
As you must have observed in yourself as well as the people around you, some of us are able to wake up early, feel alert and work our best during the morning hours. On the other hand, some people can stay awake late and work well into the night. This simply means that some of us are "morning persons" while some of us are "night persons". So, the best time to workout depends upon your own, individual, body clock. If you think that you are at your best in the morning hours, exercise in the mornings, otherwise, choose the night time.

What the Researches Say...
If you want to go by what researches have to say, the best time to exercise is neither early mornings, nor night, it is in fact late afternoons, between 4 to 5. The reason being that the body temperature is at its peak during these hours, which means that the muscles are flexible and warm. This ensures that the body's strength and endurance is more and there is lesser probability of an injury in the late afternoons, making it the ideal time to exercise.

For those who want to know specifically, "Is it better to work out in the morning or at night to lose weight?", the answer is mornings! Researches show that when you exercise in the night, the calories that you burn are simply those that you gained in the last food or meal that you had. On the other hand, if you exercise in the morning, you are actually burning the fats stored in your body, which is much more beneficial in overall fat loss from the body. Moreover, exercising in the mornings enhances the metabolism of the body, thus increasing the body's propensity to lose fats while performing physical activities throughout the day.

The Final Verdict
Let's start with the morning exercise benefits. The main advantage of exercising in the morning is that it helps in maintaining our natural body cycle. Humans are naturally programmed to wake up early and sleep early so why break this cycle by exercising in the night? Secondly, exercising in the morning helps in forming a daily exercise routine. It is seen that people are more consistent with their exercise routine when it is the first thing they do in the morning. Also, exercising in the morning keeps you fresh and alert throughout the day. The benefits of exercising and lifting weights in the morning for fat loss have already been mentioned above.

Coming to the benefits of exercising in the night, if this is the only time available for you to exercise, which fits your busy schedule, than instead of not exercising at all, make an exercise routine in the night. It is a misconception that exercising in the late evening or night disturbs one's sleep. There is no scientific study done to prove this correct.

Finally, as an answer to your query, "Is it better to work out in the morning or at night?", it is suggested that you choose a time depending upon your body as well as schedule. If you do not like waking up early and have to for exercising, either you will quit or won't feel good about it. So, choose a time to exercise that you deem is right.
