Morning vs Evening Workouts
Morning vs Evening Workouts: Top Reasons to "get your workout on" in the AM!
With the holiday season in full swing, your after-work schedule is about to blow up. And let's be honest, every party invite you receive is just one more night you're not going to show up to the gym. So even if you're a strictly-sweat-at-night kind of girl, it's time to embrace the morning workout. You know it'll help you stick to your fitness goals this month, but we get that you might need more convincing. Here, the best reasons for sweating it out in the A.M.
#1-Fire up the Machine
Morning workouts get your metabolism going. Which means you're going to burn through the food you eat during the day, rather than when you're sleeping. Especially clutch when your coworkers are bringing in homemade holiday fudge.
#2- More Focused
Your chances of getting distracted are way lower first thing in the morning, Think about it: It's a lot easier to focus on your workout when no one is emailing or texting you every five seconds. Seriously, not even Twitter is awake yet.
#3- Set your mood for the day.
That rush of endorphins you feel after a great workout boosts your energy and your mood. You are less likely to nosh on junk food in this super-healthy state of mind.
#4-You won’t have to squeeze it in before Happy Hour
Because you're not going to go after you grab "just one drink" at happy hour. Even if you seem fine, it's not a good idea to workout after having a glass of wine.
Mornings are far and above the best time of day for fitness.
