Not convinced? Let us try and get you on the morning workout bandwagon with the following top 5 reasons why you should exercise in the morning:
Want to burn more calories throughout the day doing the routine odd jobs you do? That can only happen if you give your metabolism a major boost. Something you can do if decide to work out in the morning! If you exercise at this time of the day, you increase your excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, which burns a larger number of calories after working out. And that’s even when you’re on your daily 9 to 5 job or driving around town.
According to a recent study, you can burn up to an extra 190 calories in the next 14 hours after you exercise, in comparison to the days when you don’t exercise at all (1)! Besides, since working out in the morning boosts your metabolism, the food you eat does not get stored as fat. It’s instead used as energy. That’s a benefit that you can’t get if you exercise later.
