Do you do exercise at night? Are you wondering whether it is good or bad to do exercise before bed? If yes, then you should read this article that will give you some basic information about this topic.
As a matter of fact, this question has been asked by a lot of people. And there is no definitive answer to it. You are likely to get different answers if you ask different persons. Some people will say it is fine while others say it is bad. It depends. But how do you know whether it is OK for you to exercise before bed?
There are two main things you should take into consideration.
1, Does the exercise make you hard to fall asleep?
This is the most important factor that decides whether it is OK for you to exercise before sleeping. Generally speaking, doing exercise will wake up your body, thus it will take longer for you to fall asleep, or you may even find it hard to fall asleep if you exercise near sleeping. With that being said, if you are able to fall asleep without any trouble, it is fine to do workout before bed. However, if you have hard time falling asleep after workout, it is not a good choice for you.
2, Do you have time to exercise at night?
If you can sleep well after late night exercise, the second thing you should consider is your personal schedule. If you are an evening person, it is better to exercise at night since you are easier to stick to your exercise routine. Otherwise it is better to exercise in the morning. By the way, if you are trying to lose fat and you have no preference on when to exercise, it is recommended to do workout in the morning, because your body is already in fat burning mode.
