I was wondering about this one thing and perhaps someone here can answer it:

If I had a choice of going to the gym either at around noon or in the evening at 9 P.M or so, what would be the better choice? (if there even is a better choice)

I was thinking that if I go earlier, I'll have more time to fill my body with nutritional goodies over the course of the day or does that make no difference?

if anything, i find the earlier i go the better. i tend to have more energy in the morning, and when you exercise in the morning you start your day off healthily, and don't want to ruin it by being unhealthy. comprende?

i guess it is personal though, and it depends a lot on your timetable/day plans. there is evidence to suggest that the earlier you go the better, but to be honest, as long as you're exercising i wouldn't worry about the specific time.

by going at midday, you can use lunch as your PWO meal, whereas if you go at 9, you eat dinner before but are unlikely to eat much after...

If I had the time, I would go at around midday, but as it stands, I only have time in the evenings

Whats stopping me from eating what I want in the evening? Obviously nothing as big as lunch but still quite a decent meal.

I would choose that because

- gym less busy
- you aren't as drained from the day, even if you haven't done much, you won't be at 100%
- can eat more afterwards

simple.

of course you can train effectively at both times, long as you can get yourself into 'the zone' but given you have a choice, I'd pick mid-day

Also, if you go at 9 you might have trouble sleeping if you're fully of energy when you get home. I'd go at noon, but it wont make a different i don't think

fair dues

go later then

again, only you can make the decision

it just boils down to what fits best for you/where you can train with most intensity.

yeh there are various reasons why morning is better cos of T levels , etc .... but again its just minor

I tend to find it depends whether I've been working cardio or resistance. After cardio I'm buzzing, after resistance I could curl up and go to sleep immediately.

If it's a mixed session, I'd go for the midday slot.
