CT do you have a view on when is the "optimal" time (assuming one has the luxury of choosing schedule) to train?
I think you personally train early morning (maybe 1 hr after waking up?).
There are also some folks out there ("scientific" study minded) showing 80%+ more gains if training in early evening.
They cite circadian rhthym. It's not just performance (strenght/explosivenes) but actual physiological signals...natural trainees can add way more muscle if they train early evening vs. morning.
I know personally, after a long day at work, it's harder for me to perform optimally, unless I use stimulants, and it keeps me from sleeping as well sometimes. Which is a big no no
Early morning, sometimes I feel not as strong/intense, even though more mentally focused (body not "warmed" up yet). And I do find myself most explosive after a few hours of waking up.
Thanks for your thoughts
