For the past year I've been training after work consistently, getting into the gym around 5:30-6PM. I am definitely a morning person, usually up by 5:30AM, but have always trained in the afternoon because I felt like I had more "gas in the tank" after having eaten at least 2-4 meals already. What are your thoughts on training in AM as opposed to the PM?
Do you think training in the morning after breakfast would be any different than training in the afternoon? Conceptually I feel that if I finish my training in the morning, than all of my meals will be utilized by my body to recover and rebuild.
For those of you that have switched/played around with AM vs PM training, what are your thoughts and experiences? Did effect sleep, growth, progress, or any other facet of your training and/or nutrition?
