What Is The Best Time To Exercise For Muscle Mass?
There is no right or wrong answer, but here is some insight on workout timing:
Testosterone is at its daily peak.
Mental alertness peaks late morning.
Memory works best.
Body temperature is still low.
Pain tolerance is highest.
Possible point of low energy around noon.
Late afternoon, adrenalin and body temperature has a rising trend.
Late afternoon, there is an optimum period of mental/physical function balance.
Coordination, stamina, body temperature at a peak.
Lung performance is best.
Flexibility and strength at their greatest.
Mental focus is waning.
The good news is that you get to decide the best time for you to exercise based upon your personal goals, schedule and lifestyle. Ideally, you will pick a time that you are able to stick with consistently and make part of your daily or weekly schedule.
