In my years of experience I have come across many people who have been working out for a while. Some like to workout in the morning, some like to workout in the evening and to be honest, I always thought it was just a matter of personal choice. The thought of morning workouts being better for you or the other way around never really occurred to me.
As times have gone by, things have changed and so has my understanding of things. Although the physical natures of working out in the morning and in the evening really remains the same. The question I have had to answer countless times to my clients, as well is that is it really better to workout in the morning? And if one takes precedence over the other, is it really the best time to workout?
In my experience, I have noted that working out in the morning has many benefits. The most important being that it’s just really a great way to begin your day – you start with feeling great about yourself and accomplishing something that early in the morning really gives you that positive start to the day.
So what are these benefits that I am talking about? Alright, let’s take a closer look at what I am talking about and why mornings are the best time to workout
Apart from the physical energy, morning workouts tend to automatically make you more focused and are a good way of setting things right for the remainder of the day. What this does is that your mind will automatically be ready to take on whatever tasks you have lined up for yourself to do throughout the day.
Benefit #4 – Morning Workouts Ensure That You Sleep Good
Have you ever wondered why you are tossing and turning in your bed? Unable to fall asleep? Well it’s because of the lack of mental energy and physical exertion and therefore when it is time to sleep, you are unable to.
However, when you workout in the morning on a consistent basis, you are in a routine. You are waking up early, working out and then going through the rest of the day. So when it’s time to sleep, your body is fatigued and I don’t mean exhausted but good natural fatigue that is going to help you put yourself to sleep.
On the other hand, evening workouts tend to have the opposite effect.
Honestly, I am not making this up. It’s natural that when you workout, your body’s natural reaction would be to release adrenaline. So let me ask you? Would you be able to fall asleep after you have taken a shot of adrenaline?
No. I didn’t think so either!
Benefit #5 – Morning Workouts Help Reach Fitness Goals Faster
Are morning workouts worth it?
Will you reach your fitness goals faster?
Is the sacrifice worth it?
These are some of the questions that must have gone through your head when you start working out in the morning.
Let me tell you when you start working out in the morning, you are definitely sacrificing more. This makes you more focused, more goal oriented, more willing to adapt to other things, like diet and habit changes to support your goals.
All of these things combined tend to make you commit more and eventually get you to your goals faster.
The Bottom Line
Ladies, do you want to see results faster and have often wondered what is the best time to workout for you?
Honestly, I don’t want you to take my word for adapting to morning workouts, however I do want to you try it and see for yourself and see on your own that is it better to workout if in the morning or not.
But I can assure you this, that once you do, you really are going to fall in love with it. It it is the best thing ever, and if you could make it part of your routine on a consistent basis, you really are going to see the results that are going to help you out.
