Exercise in the morning or in the evening? It depends on your goal, according to a new study

Millions of Americans take time out of their busy schedules to exercise daily. But only 23% of adults aged 18 and older meet the recommended guidelines for aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities. The biggest obstacle for most people: not having enough time. On the contrary, says a 2019 CDC and Rand study. Surveying more than 30,000 participants, the study found that Americans on average have more than five hours of free time per day.

Whether you’re considering starting a training program or you’re a more experienced athlete, one of the biggest questions I hear is, “When is the best time to exercise?” Most people are quite regimented and protective when exercising. Choosing to exercise in the morning or evening is often the result of a work schedule or childcare responsibilities. Or simply if one is a “morning person” or a “night owl”.
