AM or PM Training? What’s Better?

Morning-Workouts.jpg

Hello all,

It’s been some time since I’ve posted in my blog but I’ve gotten a lot of questions about when is the best time to workout. Ideally, research has shown that training in the evening is more optimal for results however, most people like myself don’t have time to workout after working 8-10 hours  a day.

When it comes to getting great long-term results, CONSISTENCY is the most important variable. You can have the best training regimen, workout for 1.5 hours a day, but if you can’t stick to it then you won’t achieve the results you are striving for.

Training early in the morning can help with staying consistent.

Benefits working out in the AM include:

  • The heart will gradually adjust to increased activity, thus increasing blood flow
  • Allows the heart to send the proper amount of oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells
  • Prepares the nervous system for the rest of the day
  • promotes endorphins in the brain, which can elevate an individual’s mood and help them start their day off on a positive note
  • Lastly, significantly increases an individual’s mental capacity and exercising early in the morning is linked to increased brainpower.

Plus, early in the AM you are less likely to be distracted by your environment. So if you constantly have to skip your training session because of things coming up during the day, get your training out of the way before the day starts (MAX OUT).

Thus, find what suits you and your lifestyle best. Whether it’s training early or in the evening, as long as you go out and exercise on a consistent basis, progress will be made.

Make Today Count.

Hey Everyone! I'm really excited to announce that I will be officially starting cooperbrunnerfitness! To give a quick overview, I will basically be discussing concepts or frameworks I've learned through research that I believe are critical to learn to become a disciplined, successful individual in all aspects of life. Your probably wondering.. Why are you all of the sudden deciding to become a blogger? Well... For years I have been studying/reading about influential people (Warren, Gary V, Tony Robbins, Zuck, Jobs..) that began with nothing and incrementally worked their way into becoming successful entrepreneurs. My hope is that while writing these blogs, I can ultimately inspire you to change your life and conquer those challenges you face everyday that block you from your goals. By no means am I saying that everything I talk about is the magic secret to success, but by reading the content I write about, hopefully you can take away some small tips/advice that can help inspire you to create ways on improving your life and the others around you. MAKE TODAY COUNT.
