What time of day should you exercise?

In the morning

According to Boldsky - a health expert, the best time to exercise in the morning is between 10am and 11am. At that time, the body ‘feels’ more dynamic, and is full of vitality and metabolism.

Late afternoon

It is commonly believed that exercising at 15-16 pm is good for people’s health. This is the time when the body temperature is at its highest, which will help you to sweat more. Sweating helps your body to eliminate toxins and fight skin infections.

After eating

One of your mistakes is to exercise immediately after eating. This can lead to slow digestion and disorders, which affects negatively the intestines, and stomach.

Before going to sleep

Strong exercises increase your heart rate and blood flow, which makes your body fatigue. This is not good if you want to fall asleep. Regular exercise in the evening is only effective before 19h, which gives the body enough time to relax before bed.
