Morning workout vs. Evening workout
Monday, November 18, 2013
I'm wondering if there is any difference, i.e. one is better than the other. I have heard that you don't want to workout too close to bedtime, because then you will have a hard time sleeping.
My problem is though, I have a REALLY hard time getting up any earlier than absolutely necessary to go to work. I HATE waking up early. I know, I know, how cliche, graduate student who can't get out of bed until after 9am, boohoo, poor me. But seriously, I TRY. I try every week on Monday/Tuesday to get out of bed when my boyfriend wakes me up, since he gets up at 5am to workout. I have even tried just having him wake me at 6 or 6:30, but I have no motivation in the morning.
I suppose the time that really makes the difference is whatever time you find that fits in with your lifestyle. So I should just be proud that I make the time to workout, and I do it around 5pm. If that time works for me, then I'm sure it will make more of a difference than not working out. I am really hoping to one day be better at working out in the morning though. I would like to come home and not have to change, workout, shower, before I do anything else. Oh well though, if it is important I'll make the time. And I AM making the time, that's something at least.
