A complete guide to the best time to exercise

We all love to party and have fun! Oh how we just forget to hit the gym after we have had more than our share of good things and we happily plummet in to the coziest couch forgetting the world of bad that all those fried thingies and the spirits will do to our bodies.

Wake up guys!

When care and tiredness is pushing you down a bit, rest if you must but dont you quit! Sometimes it is laziness and sometimes it is when genuinely we are too tired to be going up and about the work out and we decide to procrastinate it to the next time and so on and so further. But this article must hopefully let you do a bit of introspection and then motivate you to get over all that inertia and hit the gym.

What does science say for www.bodygearguide.com?

Scientists did an experiment where they divided a group of twenty people into two groups of ten each. Both were asked to do chores around the house and similar errands outside. One group was continuously motivated to hit the gym however tired they may be at the end of the day while the other group was never nudged.

The results were for all to see. The group that was motivated initially also had inertia to hit and resisted the idea citing tiredness and no will for workout. But the moment they were inside the precincts of the gymnasium, automatically, they got in to the mood for a nice work out. And you must know what good a great work out does to your body.

The benefits are great for a little amount of trouble:

The body starts producing the good hormones only ten fifteen minutes into a nice medium paced work out and soon the feel good hormones replace all the tiredness and inertia into positive energy. The fact that the person sees others like him working out there also motivates him to do his bit. The amount of stress that a person reduces thus is so high that scientists believe it is worth even begging the person to hit the floor!

Here is a quick low down on the best time for a work out:

A few years ago it was believed that sticking to one time daily for a workout had its own set of benefits and therefore trainers world over were keen that their subjects started early, and preferably the first thing in the morning and then go about their routine.

Researches now point to the fact that afternoon is indeed the best time in the day to hit the gym apparently. The body temperature rises through the day and eventually peaks in the afternoon. Also, the blood sugar level and the blood pressure levels dip low at this point and therefore it is also the best time in the day to make all the moves count and reduce the calories by leaps and bounds.

Here is a list of the benefits that accrue when the exercising regimen is scheduled sometime around afternoon:

  1. The bodys core temperature which rises throughout the day and peaks in th afternoon helps in preventing stiffness in the muscles and avoiding sprains;
  2. Higher body temperature also means that the body is flexible and warmed up for the regimen and this helps to reach the desired fitness levels quickly and effortlessly;
  3. With high body temperature, muscle strength and muscle endurance increases and therefore the quality of the work out turns out to be better;
  4. The afternoon time is also the time when the heart rate is the highest and the blood pressure levels plummets at the lowest;
  5. The hormone level of testosterone is highest in the afternoon which is instrumental in helping muscle building and strength training;
  6. The stress hormone called the Cortisol also reduces by afternoon after peaking at the highest in the morning;

If afternoon workout interfere with your familial or financial commitments, morning work outs also do yield a close to successful result provided you keep at it with the intention that you must go on even if it means that you sleep less and work more.

In the end, you will realize that the hour of time that you choose to work out at may just be a number and nothing more significant about it. The fact that you are disciplined enough to hit the floor even with stiff physical and psychological resistance will help you pave the way for your health and happiness!
