Training in the morning or in the evening? It depends on your goal, says a new study

Millions of Americans take time out of their busy schedule to train every day. But only 23% of adults over the age of 18 meet recommended guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activity. The biggest obstacle for most people: not having enough time. In reverse, says a 2019 study by the CDC and Rand. Analyzing more than 30,000 participants, the study found that Americans have an average of more than five hours of free time per day.

Whether you are considering starting a training regimen or a more experienced athlete, one of the biggest questions I hear is, “When is the best time to train?” Most people are quite regimented and protective when exercising. Choosing to train in the morning or evening is often the product of a work schedule or childcare responsibilities. Or simply if one is a “morning person” or a “night person”.
