My favorite time to exercise is early in the morning. Get up, get it done and over with, and get on with your day. In general, if my exercise is not all done by 7 AM, it is not going to happen. No one cares what I do before around 7 - 7:30 AM. There are no meals to prepare, no kids to get off at 5-6 AM, no meetings of any kind, no phone ringing, and best of all, no interruptions!
For four decades I have tried other times of day from time to time. 100% of the time something interfered with my plan to exercise. It simply does not work. Rain, snow, sunshine, dark or daylight, I am out getting my exercise outdoors on the road, or indoors in a fitness club early in the morning.
I stand in awe and wonder how anyone can get exercise done any other time of day.
In the afternoons or evenings though mornings are my goal for when I don't have class. Afternoons work better with classes starting at 9 am and I tend to not be a morning person on those days. Sometimes getting active in the afternoon can help with homework too when its overwhelming for a break occasionally.
First thing in the morning! :) One less thing I have to worry about in the day.

Later in the day after I've been awake for awhile and been able to fuel my body a bit; anything before that I feel less powerful.

I like exercise in the morning after good night sleep. But can do this just on weekend, because usually I working from 6am on weekdays. So, exercise in the mornings on weekend and early aftternoon on workdays for me
