Mistake #1: Working Out at the Wrong Time of Day
Recent research shows that the best time of day to exercise depends on your fitness goals.
Are you exercising to beat stress and lower your blood pressure? Morning resistance training can decrease your blood pressure level by 20%. That’s comparable to—or even better than—common hypertension drugs. And you don’t have to worry about side effects.
Morning exercisers also enjoy up to 75% more time in deep sleep than afternoon and evening exercisers.
Want to banish workday brain fatigue and boost your productivity? Try a mid-day workout between noon and 6 p.m.
Are you one of the millions of Americans who are walking to lose weight? Logging your 10,000 steps in the evening can help you resist late-night food cravings and help you shed pounds.
Evening workouts are also best if your goal is to quickly increase your muscle mass and strength.
