Which is the Best Time to Exercise?

The best time to exercise of the day is when you will do it most consistently, because the benefits of physical activity are tightly linked to the amount you do on a consistent basis. Your best time is based on a “constellation” of factors:

  • Location,
  • Time of day,
  • Type of physical activity and
  • Social setting, among others.

Different people will have different preferences and predispositions with regard to how they respond to exercise at different times of the day. For example, if you’re much more likely to work out consistently with a partner, “then you’re better off to opt for a social part regardless of the time of day. On the other hand, some people like the solitude, the chance to get away.

If you’re not a morning person, it does no good for you to try to get up at 5 in the morning to work out,” he said. Try to stack as many cards on your side of the table as possible by doing what’s most likely to work for you. The converse is, don’t make it as hard as it doesn’t have to be.

The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) a week of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes (1 hour and 15 minutes) a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity. For example, in the morning, park 10 minutes away from the job and walk briskly. At lunch, walk 10 minutes in or around where you work. In the afternoon/evening, walk briskly 10 minutes back to your vehicle.
