2. Testosterone levels: In the early hours your hormones like Testosterone which are very essential for muscle-building and strength are at their peak or above best levels. This helps you push harder in the weight room giving better results.
3. Better kick-start for the day: Working out in the mornings sets the right tine for the day to follow. A good exercise session or workout followed by a good nutritious meal is a great way to build on for the day. Unlike the lazy and slow mornings where you end up being the same for most art of the day which also makes the day way less productive.
4. Better metabolism: EPOC, Excess post exercise oxygen consumption is the word more frequently used. Working out in the morning helps you burn more fat as compared to other times of the day by burning more calories for the rest of the day.
