What I have to say about night training is that I get more of a pump from my workouts, feel stronger, relieves a lot of stress from work, and a metabollic boost, which I believe helps prevent gaining fat from a big dinner
On the hand, the morning is a great time to do high rep training and cardiovascular ralated exercises. I can’t lift heavy in the morning because I find myself feeling weaker from glycogen/ATP depletion caused by the hours of fasting from the sleep cycle.
Training in the morning does have a fat-burning effect because testosterone and growth hormone levels are usually higher than at night and the body has less glycogen stored, forcing it to burn fat as fuel. Hence, it is the best time to complete cardio and high rep training of any sort such as body weight exercises like push-ups, dips, chin-ups, abdominals, etc. It yields great results!
Now, on my heavy days, I go to the gym in the evening around 7-9pm and do my heavy sets of bench presses, squats, deadlifts, military press, and so on. It’s a great way to gain mass fast and increment strength much faster.
With that said, it depends on what goals you have in mind, lifestyle, type of work, personality, and training style. Personaly, I mix it up to keep my body guessing, get more complete results, and the best of both worlds. End of story. [/quote]
I agree, it is dependant on what you are trying to accomplish but Hot damn it’s crazy that i am actually getting leaner just by working out at night, that metabolic boost is really something.
