Well, I THINK about doing it in the morning,but usually its afternoon. Yesterday I had to go into work an hour early, and was so surprised at 6:30am to see how many people were out and about walking, running, biking ... getting their exercise in. Impressive.

I am a morning person and I do all of my exercise early in the morning. Except for yoga which I drag myself to after work. It is so relaxing that I am always so glad when I do!

I am not an exercise lover so if I don't get it in early in the morning, it doesn't happen. Promise myself to do it later but something much more interesting comes along.

I too like morning - feed the cat, start the coffee, make the lunches, drink a cup of coffee - get to exercising

I've tried exercising after work and exercising in the mornings. Much prefer mornings because I find at 5am there is no good excuse not to do it. I always feel really relaxed and centered after my walks, too, so it's a great way to start my day.

Late morning I do strength exercises.
Evening I walk at least one mile.

I really like to exercise early in the morning.
1. walk dogs or
2. ride bike or
3. walk on treadmill. I sleep in sometimes which is not helping me. emoticon

Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be friendly, laugh,give and do charity.....IT is the key to heaven.

Most things I've read say morning is best, for various reasons. But of course it depends on what else is going on in your day, where you live, and so on. I'm not a morning person, and now that I'm older I'm afraid if I tried to exercise really early in the morning I'd hurt something. I prefer to schedule my exercise in the evening, because my work and errands are done and I can concentrate on exercise then. I have started doing 1 hike a week and 1 gym visit a week with other people though; both of these activities are scheduled for 9:30 am. I enjoy these, partly because they are a social outlet and also because the occasional change in routine invigorates me.

Well, I am not a morning person at all! I have been walking for 30 minutes after supper and then I do 20 minutes of strength training - I alternate upper body/abs and lower body each day. I have one day of rest each week.

Pretty good for a couch potato, I figure!

Hi Everyone,
Just a quick question to see if there is an optimum time to exercise. I get up at 5:45 and walk/jog 3.5 miles (about an hour) every day except Sunday. I take that day off to rest my body. I have also started doing sit-ups, leg lifts and stretching (I started slow and will add 10 units to each thing every other week). What is your routine?
