When’s The Best Time to Work Out?

Are you a morning person? Do you spring out of bed, greet the day, and head out for a run? Maybe you’re more of a night owl, waiting until after work or dinner to hit the gym. So, when is the best time of day to get in a workout? Unfortunately, there isn’t a clear-cut answer to that question. Both morning and evening workouts have their pros and cons.

For instance, working out first thing in the morning gets it off your daily to-do list early and will give you energy for the rest of the day. You can also wind down after your morning workout with a protein smoothie. Check out our recipes page for delicious and nutritious BiPro smoothie recipes. Pro tip: Before working out in the morning you’ll want to stretch out. Your whole body was just dormant for several hours, so you’re bound to be stiff. Loosen up before getting underway.

As for the afternoon and evening hours, some prefer to hold off on their workout until after work and then let loose! Exercising helps them to release tension and stress from the day. You’ll be more alert and more awake, and less likely to injure yourself. The evening lends itself well to a sweet treat. Try some berry freezer pops that are packed with Berry BiPro Protein Water for a nice recovery dessert. 

To get the most out of a nighttime workout, you should also consider using BioZzz. The unflavored alpha-lactalbumin whey protein contains the highest natural source of tryptophan available. Studies have shown that evening consumption of alpha-lactalbumin can improve sleep quality, morning alertness and mood under stress. 

Now, if you like to take your workout outside, remember that temperatures are the coolest at dawn and dusk, making it a more comfortable time of day than the middle of the afternoon.

Regardless of when you work out, the most important thing is to be consistent. Whey protein should certainly stay by your side for exercise recovery, morning, noon, or night!

Thanks Joe for answering the question about whether or not we should workout when sick! What you said really hit home because I always feel guilty if I don't work out but sometimes you just don't feel up to it it's great to have a guideline from a professional.
