I recently read in a magazine that it is best to workout in the morning bc your testosterone levels are much higher than in the evening and about an hour after your workout in the morning your testosterone level doubles, whereas in the evening your testosterone levels are much lower and decrease after your evening workout. Does anyone know if this is true, if so I will be working out in the morning!? thanx
Your T levels at the time you work out have little to do with anything.
While T levels are highest in the morning, most world records get broken about mid-afternoon.
I’m not saying that that’s an argument to work out in the afternoon–I just included it as evidence that T levels during a workout or an athletic event have little to do with performance.
Truth be told, while T levels increase right after a workout, they soon drop below baseline and remain there for 24 to 36 hours (at least in strength athletes).
