Morning exercise is the best exercise and here's why.
1. You can do absolutely nothing else for your day and you have still done something.
Like you already ran 3 miles and did a killer leg workout what more do people want from you?
2. You get rid of the 'I'm too busy' excuse.
The prime time to workout is mid afternoon as this is when your body is working most efficiently, but things like work get in the way of exercising at this time. Having an am. workout routine means you are less likely to skip it for other obligations.
3. You’ll burn more fat.
Fasted training helps to ensure that carbs, protein, and fats go to the right places in the body and are stored only minimally as body fat - in short you could burn up to 20 percent more body fat by exercising in the morning before your first meal. Just make sure you refuel with a healthy breakfast before you sit down at your desk.
4. You’ll boost your mood for the rest of the day.
Exercise releases endorphins which fills you up with smiles and rainbows all day.
5. Your social life will peak.
Ever miss a great social gathering at the crack of dawn? No, no, you haven't. So you won't be missing anything when you take your morning run. Drinks later?
6. There are fewer people about.
Early mornings are often a quiet time with fewer people on the road or in the gym so you can have a freer, more intense workout to feel smug about for the rest of the day.
7. You’ll feel smarter.
Exercise has been shown to increase mental focus for up to 10 hours after you’ve completed your workout. That means if you’re squeezing your workout in after you’ve finished at the office you aren’t taking advantage of all the extra brain power you’ve created.
8. You’ll have more energy
Exercise releases feel-good compounds and stimulates your body which improves your energy levels well into the afternoon if you get your workout in early.
9. Your productivity and creativity will increase
As a result of your new found energy and mental focus, you will start the day energized, with a clear mind and able to organise your work schedule more efficiently.
10. Better sleep
Since exercise stimulates your body, when you exercise at night, it’s harder to relax and drift off. Whereas getting an early morning workout ensures your body is ready to relax by the end of the day.
