Ever feel you’re not really a morning person? Maybe your body is trying to tell you something. A study has shown that we respond differently to exercise at different times of the day.
These researchers who did the study divided 50 young healthy adults into groups that exercised for one hour each day at different times, morning, afternoon and during the evening. Blood tests showed that after their workouts the latter two groups had a higher levels of hormones of cortisol and thyrotropin, which helps metabolize energy. The night group also exhibited a larger drop in glucose. Should we then exercise during the evening? We could not make this claim based merely on this research. Whether you’re a night or morning person, what important is that we stay fit by exercising.
