What is the best time of day to train?

Post by Dr. Steroids on Tue Mar 19, 2013 11:29 am

Most studies show that muscle strength, power and endurance are greatest between about 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Muscle temperatures are generally highest at this time, which probably accounts for the difference.

A study from Finland showed that daily variations in strength and power cease to exist in people who train in the morning. They examined 27 men who weight trained either in the morning (7 a.m. to 9 a.m.) or in the afternoon (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.).

Initially, all subjects were stronger in the afternoon than in the morning. But these differences disappeared in the morning training group, but not in the evening training group.

This study showed that you should exercise in the morning if you have a morning competition, because morning training will eliminate normal strength differences between early and late times of the day.

I suppose you have to choose that thing personally. For instance I train early in the morning, because I feel really good and powerfull)) But a lot of my friends visit gym and train in evening at 7pm - they don't get exhausted as I do. So I think, it's personal question))
