Does the time we workout really affect how much we burn fat and calories? It’s common knowledge that regular exercise tremendously benefits our body, mind, and overall health. However, our schedules frequently do vary and committing to working out at the same time everyday gets tricky. Instead of trying to squeeze in a workout here and there, let’s look at when is the best time to workout and how should we go about it…
Rise & Shine!
Fitness plays a critical role in improving our health, better sleep, weight loss and raising endorphins. According to a study done by Gretchen Reynolds in the New York Times, the BEST time to workout is early in the morning before you even eat breakfast! Before you say “That’s WAY too early”, give it a chance. People who work out on an empty stomach burned up to 20 percent more fat, according to health site Greatist. Another study indicated that moderate exercise for 45 minutes in the morning reduced appetite.The science behind this truth is that it forces your body to tap into your fat reserves while working out and not the calories of the most recent snack or meal you just ate. Committing to an early morning workout routine moves you from a fitness wimp to a workout warrior. Stay on track with fitness goals by scheduling early morning workout sessions into your weekly calendar.
