Why not wake up earlier and do it in the morning?

That is what I kind of do as I work out at about 8pm-9pm, have food straight away then go to sleep around 11:30-12. There have been no bad things that have happened to my body so I guess it's okay.

But I would suggest you wait 2-3 hours after the workout so you can sleep.

I have often worked out before bed. My gym posted something recently comparing early morning and late evening workouts. The verdict was that they're both good and have different benefits! The perks of the evening was that you're able to lift more weights apparently and are generally stronger! I don't know how true it is but put it this way they didn't mention late night workouts being bad for you.

As this person said, late night workouts will help you lift the most weight as you consumed calories throughout the day.

But if you are looking to lose weight, a session before breakfast is beneficial as there are no calories for your body to use so it uses fat cells.

i don't go to bed until around 10 or 11 so I'm usually really tired in the morning

The only downside to working out before going to bed is if you drink a lot of water during your workout you will likely be waking up 1-2 times during the night to use the lavatory.

I do ten minutes with dumbells right before getting in bed. Though I do it fairly gently, not to get "ripped" but just to mitigate a fairly inactive lifestyle.

You'll struggle to sleep after an intense workout before bed.

It is good. I noticed I even sleep better after working out.
