The Best Time To Train

I am often asked when is the best time to train. My response is whenever it is convenient for you to work out the best time. The most convenient times generally seem to be after work or school. Usually, an hour before supper or an hour after. You shouldn’t train too quickly after a meal, since your body is digesting the food– thus most bodybuilders wait an hour after a meal before exercising. Train whenever it is convenient. I have known bodybuilders who even trained before breakfast, as it was the best time for them. Find the time that is best for you and then stick to it. Once you find a good time to train, it is best to try to stick to that same time throughout the week (although it sometimes isn’t possible). This way, your body will adjust to that training period.
