Why Not, Exercise Before Breakfast!

Slide 1 of 5: The early bird gets the worm, but what does the early-morning exerciser get? A lot, apparently. Working out before breakfast isn't just a great way to hit your fitness goals first thing in the morning—some research has associated the practice with unique benefits that you might not get by working out at other times of day.Before we dive into those benefits, some caveats must be noted. Many studies exploring exercise and time of day are limited to small human trials or mouse studies—meaning that their conclusions aren't necessarily definitive. Additionally, lots of the findings are conflicting. "The research is all over the map on the best time to exercise, mainly because research is looking at all different types of benefits from stress management to weight loss and body composition," Bronwyn Bacon, ND, shared with ACE Fitness. Depending on your body, your goals, and the type of exercise you love, you may see lots (or zero) benefit to switching up the time of day you work out.All of that is to say: The best time of day to work out is the one that works best for your schedule. If you're not a morning person, forcing yourself out of bed to hit the pavement before you've had coffee is hardly conducive to a sustainable fitness routine. But if you're an early riser—or are interested in shaking up your fitness—there are some potential benefits to working out before breakfast for your health, your mood, and more. Read on for what they are, and if walking is your exercise of choice, don't miss The Secret Cult Walking Shoe That Walkers Everywhere Are Obsessed With.
