What's the best time to exercise? morning? afternoon?

Actually, as researchers at healthline.com point out, you can make a case for either.

The benefits of a morning workout include:

📌You get your workout done before 9 a.m., accomplishing something some people won’t accomplish all day, a huge ego boost. You’ll also start the day with a brain charged with endorphins, chemicals that leave your brain feeling happy and relaxed.
📌You burn more fat. Those who start their exercise routine on an empty stomach burn about 20 percent more body fat than those exercising later in the day.
📌A morning exercise boosts your metabolism which means you’ll be burning calories throughout the day as you consume them.
📌Morning exercise helps many people get more quality sleep at night, while an evening workout that revs up your system might make sleep more difficult.

The benefits of an Afternoon/Evening workout include:

📌You can probably get some extra sleep in the morning.
📌Your body temperature peaks between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., and this elevated temperature optimizes your muscle function and strength, as well as your endurance.
📌Oxygen uptake kinetics are faster in the evening, and that means you use your resources more slowly and effectively than in the morning.
📌In the afternoon or evening, your reaction time is at its quickest, while your heart rate and blood pressure are lowest, all decreasing your chances of injury while improving your performance.

Getting the proper amount of water is extremely important as every cell, tissue, and organ in our bodies needs water.
