When you feeling BEST
Are you a night owl? Work out at night. Are you a Morning, person? Work out first thing in the morning, etc. Any time you pick that you can push yourself is the best time. The most notable physiological advantages happen when you push yourself further than you’ve ever pushed before. There’s a reason the Insanity Fitness program’s mantra is “Dig Deeper.” The more you drive yourself to 100% effort, the more you push your body into an adaptive state, which is exactly what’s needed for significant changes to occur.

In the MORNING
If you exercise in the morning in a fasted state, your body will be forced to utilize the fat stores for energy. Over time as you continue to do so your body becomes more efficient at burning fat, which is cool.

In the EVENING
As a last resort, you can workout in the evening. However, unless it is the ONLY time you can work out or the only time you feel at peek to perform your best it is recommended to avoid it.
Working out prior to bedtime can affect your sleep in a negative way. Exercise disrupts melatonin production, the hormone that regulates sleep, among other things. This isn’t ideal because sleep is vital to recovery.

Bottom line, we all need to exercise, and most of us can eat better too. As a matter of fact many need to drop the evening cocktail! When ingested it completely halts the fat burning process. So. when it comes to getting your best possible results eat clean, workout and remember psychology often trumps physiology. Exercise when you can focus on your performance and form. Then choose your preferred workout time based on your results. It’s really that simple. Looking for more fitness tips visit: www.positivelydiesel.com/blog
