806 Health: Working Out In The Morning Can Help Your Goals
Do you workout? Do you head to the gym? Or does that treadmill in your house call your name? Do you think there is a good time to work out?
Well according to a new study the answer is yes. I mean if you want that workout to do even more for you. If you get your sweat on before breakfast you end up burning even more fat then you would if you wait later in the day.
A study was done where a group of overweight and obese men ate the same food and did the same workout. The ones who worked out before breakfast ended up losing more fat then the ones who worked out after breakfast.
The reasoning behind this is that if you work out on an empty stomach it forces your body to burn the stored fat you have. If you eat first then you are burning the calories that you just ate. So it does make sense.
Those who worked out before breakfast actually saw more benefits to their overall health as well. if you are one that gets lightheaded or drinks a pre-workout before the gym I would definitely not suggest skipping food or drinking the pre-workout on an empty stomach. That is just asking for trouble.
If you can get by with something light like maybe a hard boiled egg at least you can have minimum calories. You will then be able to handle your pre-workout. It all depends on how you plan your workouts.
So if you can get up and make it part of your routine to work out in the morning and benefit yourself like this. I mean it is a great idea. It does make your day start off a lot earlier but oh and it makes a lot of sense.
