lifting at night

everywhere i go people are saying its best to workout in the morning or mid day. the trouble is i simply can't do that on weekdays. i'm in college untill 5pm. when i get home i take my dog for a walk and by the time i get back my tea is waiting for me on the table. obviously i can't train right away after eating, so i usually find myself training by 8-9pm.

the question is, is there anything wrong with working out at night, opposed to working out earlier?

i don't see anything wrong with working out at night - in fact i do it myself.

the best thing is to be consistent, so if you can workout consistently at night, then go ahead.

hope this helps.

The reason you're meant to lift in the morning is that you party out your muscles and they're all "dude, I totally need some sustinance to replenish myself. I mean, you totally went full out on those weights. I'm so partied out so I need the good stuff so I can recover and grow" and if you lift at night, your body isn't getting any of the good stuff in for recovery.

working out in the mornin is ment for cardio more then strenth building as it burns more calories on a empty stomach but if you cant just keep it consistent

If you work out at home just wake up earlier.

There is nothing wrong with training at night. Just be sure to drink a protien shake afterwards. Try to drink one when you get up as well and you will see good gains.

I don't work out late in the evening, because then I won't sleep for hours. Other than that, I don't think there's anything detrimental about it. It would CERTAINLY be better than not working out at all!

I would rather work out at night then in the morning. I find when I work out in the morning, my muscles are sore all day long, as to working out at night were I rest and my muscles are more fresh in the morning.
