This is actually a very common question and many people receive forwarded emails describing the disadvantages of exercising at an inappropriate time and how it affects the organs. But before going into the advantages and advantages of exercising at specific times, I want to create a mutual understanding.
If your time is limited and you cannot choose the time at which you exercise, whether it is in the morning, afternoon, or evening, please understand that exercise is very beneficial, whatever time you do it.
The only reason I started with this clarification is that some people don’t have the luxury of being able to choose the time at which they exercise. If they are told that the morning is better than the evening, or vice-versa, and this optimum time doesn’t fit in with their schedule, they could choose not exercise. This is absolutely wrong.
However, some research studies indicate that individuals who exercise regularly at a particular time are less likely to suffer from heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity, and so on.
Despite this, the results of many research studies on exercise vary and there is still no common agreement. Some research projects find that exercise in the morning is better, while others prove otherwise.
The Facts about Exercise in the Morning
1. It is easier to form a habit of exercising in the morning than in the afternoon. Therefore, morning exercisers tend to be more disciplined in their exercise.
2. Those who have trouble sleeping should exercise in the morning as this will help them to sleep more effectively than if they exercise in the late afternoon. Sleeping habits also have an effect on appetite. The less you sleep, the more frequently you will feel hungry, thus making it difficult to control your weight.
3. Exercise in the morning helps you control or lose weight better because of this hour which is influenced by human biological clock.
4. The heartbeat is slower if you exercise in the morning.
The Facts about Exercise in the Late Afternoon
1. The body temperature reaches its peak around 4–5 pm which is an opportune time to exercise because the metabolism works better.
2. Muscles are stronger in the afternoon and they perform 5–10% more effectively.
3. The body’s endurance, which includes endurance for aerobic exercise, increases by 4% in the afternoon.
4. The likelihood of getting injured as a result of exercise is lower in the afternoon because the higher temperature can warm the muscles and make them more flexible. In addition, the muscles are stronger, which further decreases the possibility of getting injured.
5. Be sure to exercise 4–6 hours before bedtime because the body remains active as a result of the hormones produced during the exercise.
If you have no time at all or cannot choose the time to exercise, try to spare at least 150 minutes/week to exercise. This can be divided into 30-minute sets.
You should also plan to develop your muscles by weightlifting for one hour a week. The muscles to target include the abdomen, back, and thighs. The larger the muscles, the better the metabolism. You should also plan to stretch your muscles for at least half an hour on a daily basis. You can do this either at your workplace or at home. This is to prevent back pain as a result of working on a computer for a long period of time.
Whatever you do, and whenever you do it, spare a little time to exercise and take care of your health.
