Doing it in the morning or night?


Today I was reading an article in Marie Claire and they were profiling women who get up early to work out. For most people I know, its pretty hard to get up in time for work, never mind to get up and work out. Here is a list of pros and cons for morning work outs:

PRO:

Get it done with

Good way to kick start the day and boost energy

Raises your metabolism for a period of time afterwards

Less people at the gym (aka more machines open)

CON:

Can’t sleep late

Tired at night so you miss your favorite TV shows

Okay, the last reasonĀ  is kind of an excuse, but still worth putting in the con section. I think the best time really is the morning, but motivation is just not kicking in that early. According to Associated Content, they lean toward morning, but if you can get it in at anytime, its better then no-time.

Yoga in the morning is definitely different due to your tight muscles. If you ever find that your not has flexible in the morning, don’t worry, your among most. Its important to listen to your body and don’t push yourself past your edge. This can lead to injury.

Goal for this week: Get up early twice and fit in a work out or yoga.
