What is the best time to do the workouts?


Physical training is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, but the best time to exercise can vary from person to person. While some people feel more energized in the morning, others prefer to work out in the evening. Each organism reacts differently to load at different times of the day. It's crucial to find a training time that suits your personal preference and schedule. 

Several studies suggest that the evening (around 6:00 p.m.) is ideal for muscle gain, as the body's natural rhythm and hormone levels are better suited for building muscle mass. On the other hand, for fat burning, the morning is considered the most effective time (ideally on an empty stomach, but here, too, you should be guided by the feelings in the body).

To determine your optimal training time, it's recommended to experiment with different times and observe how your body reacts. Through such an "experiment", you'll know what your most productive time is. 

However, it's essential to listen to your body's signals and adjust your training routine accordingly to achieve the best results.

    You can do a workout in the evening. Also, it will be better to maintain a consistent workout schedule by exercising at the same time every day of your training. 
    The best time for your evening meal depends on your workout goal. You can read more detailed information about nutrition in this article
