When is the best time to train? Morning or night?

Dr. Smolensky, Health Sciences Center, University of Texas, said that a heart rate of 140 bpm in the morning is not indicative of the same level of workout cost as in the afternoon. Your capacity to generate and tolerate a higher heart rate is better later in the day. People who do not work out regularly put more strain on their hearts in the morning. Anyone at risk for heart attack should workout in the late afternoon or evening. Later in the day your muscles are stronger and your heart and lungs are more efficient.

Athletic records are usually set in the late afternoon or evening. Many athletes have lower maximum and submaximal heart rates in the morning but their perception of how hard they were working was the same in the morning as it was later in the day. Strength, power, and speed are worst in the early morning. Perceived exertion is higher in the early morning. After being at rest during the night, it is difficult to jump start the body. The body needs time to get into gear. Movement throughout the day prepares the muscles, heart and lungs for greater workloads later in the day. Bottom line, listen to your body, do what works for you.
