That is a great question with no right or wrong answer. It can be a no or a yes, I will tell you my thoughts. It all depends on your schedule if you sleep accordingly and wake up in the mornings. You may find yourself to be most energetic early. I personally love to workout when I wake up. So to answer that question, my workouts are most effective when I wake up. But if you’re getting off of work in the morning, and then you head over to the gym. You may not find your workouts to be most effective in the morning. Everyone has there own wake-up time or when to sleep. Remember everybody is different, I will tell you why I choose after waking up to be the most effective.
Recovering is what you should take into consideration when deciding. To find effectiveness you need to rest and heal. Working out in the mornings is a fantastic idea if you slept that night and will be working the following afternoon. However, some may be getting off of work at that time. So for graveyard workers, it wouldn’t be most effective. So it’s really up to the person on how life is scheduled for them.
Workouts in the morning/ or when waking up, can have you ready for the day. But if you were to work out right before bed, you may not be able to focus. Especially if you been working or staying busy during the day. But here’s the main reason I choose after waking up to be the best. It’s the time frame from my sleep to my workouts. To work out right before bed is not giving yourself a good time to recover your damaged tissues. If I had a whole day ahead, after my workouts in the morning, I’m allowing my body to relax/recover a little. This happens when I’m feeding my body during the day.
Now when you’re asleep you not feeding or replacing your nutrients, in which you just lost working out. Going to sleep on time and having your workouts in the morning can be very effective. Because the tissue you tore in the morning is not as damage at the end of the day. That is because you the time frame you went beast mode, is far apart from your sleep.
If your pushing yourself while working out, the activities you participate in is not comparable to your workout. A better way I can explain this let’s take a boxer for example. A boxer would not spar or go all out the day before his/her match. That is because you wouldn’t be prep for the match, due to you not giving yourself the time span to heal or be ready. Don’t forget your best moments of recovering are when you sleep. I hope my point about workouts in the morning/ or when you wake up made sense to you Let me know whats your favorite time of the day to workout? Morning or Nights?
