TheBoldAge takes a look at some of the research
Those individuals who exercised in the early morning were far more likely to keep it up than those who exercised in the afternoon. The other key finding from this study was that having a regular time to exercise, regardless of what time of day, was hugely beneficial in helping people to stick with their exercise routine.Ultimately, we all have busy lives with competing demands on our time, even in lockdown, what works for one person will not necessarily work for another. They key is to find a time of day that will work for you. Plan it around your 'lockdown objectives', work or the school run, find a time that is convenient for you. Consistency rather than the time of day is key in finding an exercise routine that you can stick to. So, review your diary, add your entry for exercise and stick with it. This will ensure that you get far better results than just trying to exercise on an ad hoc basis. Consistency is king!When do you exercise, do you have a favourite time? Go on give it all a go.
