Workout Tip

Work out in the morning

Aside from starting out your day energized and in a good, endorphins-powered mood, research has pointed to several lesser-known benefits of mornings workouts. First off, it can help you cut out calories. A study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that morning workouts can make food less appealing later in the day.

There’s also some evidence that the body is primed for exercise in the morning. According to the National Institute for Fitness & Sport, humans’ testosterone levels are highest right when they wake up. Testosterone promotes muscle growth, making a morning workout more efficient than exercise during other times in the day.
