Some of us are early birds, and some of us are night owls – but when it comes to burning more fat through exercise, one time is better than the other to do it.
Now the study was done on mice – but they found that exercise at different times of day affects the bodies in different ways because of the rhythms our cells get into.
The mice working in the morning on an empty stomach had a higher metabolic rate than those who worked out in the evening.
So, if you’ve been dreading that early morning class you signed up for, stick with it! But no matter what time of day you exercise, as long as you keep moving, you’ll get a ton of benefits like improved brain health, reducing the risk of disease, strengthening bones and muscles, and managing a healthy weight.
