What Time of Day Do You Work Out?

What Time of Day Do You Work Out?

There is an ongoing debate about what time of day is best for working out — a.m. vs. p.m. Working out in the morning definitely has its benefits. It helps wake up your body, clears your mind, and relieves prework stress. It's also nice to get it done in the morning so you don't have to worry about fitting it in later in the day.

Exercising in the afternoon or evening has its pros too. You don't have to wake up early and miss out on sleep, and your body has a chance to warm up throughout your day, so when you exercise, there's less risk of injury. It can also be cooler at night, which is great during the Summer months.

Since there are pros and cons to each, the bottom line is that it doesn't matter when you exercise, as long as you do it. So what about you . . .
