You want to burn calories during your workout, it’s important that you squeeze in exercise every day, so if you’re running short on time or unable to fit a workout in at specific times, do it whenever you can.
However, it’s been proven that working out early in the morning before eating will burn more body fat than any other time in the day.
The logic behind this is that if you work out later in the day, after you’ve consumed calories, your body will work to burn the calories and carbs of the foods you’ve eaten. However, if you exercise early in the morning before your body has an intake of calories, you’re body will instead, focus on stored body fat!
And there’s another reason why working out early in the day is a good idea: You’ll be able to develop a consistent exercise routine!
Most people who try to incorporate exercise into their day find it easier to squeeze in early in the morning, before the chaos of our daily lives ensues.
For busy moms, finding the time to work out in the mornings is often easier than later in the day when you’re busy preparing meals, chasing after the kids or doing housework.
For professionals, coming home from a hectic day at the office leaves you tired and craving rest, so the last thing on your mind is to get up and spend your remaining energy on a work out.
Extensive studies have revealed that those who are able to maintain a consistent workout routine do so early in the day. There are fewer distractions and interruptions, and far easier to develop a natural habit to work out.
Exercising in the mornings also helps to raise your heart rate and metabolism, so that you can burn more calories earlier in the day, and since exercise actually gives you energy, you’ll find your productivity at work to be far greater than on the days when you haven’t exercised.
If you need to stay on your toes, be creative and alert at your job, working out in the mornings will help provide mental clarity and focus throughout the day.
