Donít know if I mentioned in a previous comment; I always did my workout of cardio and weight lifting in the early afternoon after work except on the weekends. However, I did workout in the early morning for about 2 years because of my work scheduling. I am not a morning person even though I started work before 6 A.M. but itís not a physical job.
For morning workout, I had to sleep before 7 or 8 P.M. get up, shower to wake up, ate something light (oatmeal and eggs), arrived in the gym nearby and started at 4:15. I rushed though a short cardio, then weight lifting. I had to lift lighter weight at a faster pace without rest between sets, and could not push to the limit and beyond because I had to conserve my energy for my work. I would workout for less than 75 minutes. Then I shower, rushed home to eat something light again instead of a complete high protein diet and got on the rush hour So. Calif. freeway traffic for work. I would be dragging for the rest of the day and couldnít wait until lunch so I could take a 40 minutes nap in my car.
For afternoon workout, I would have enough sleep, ate enough protein and carbs for breakfast and lunch. Then I could workout for 90 or more minutes with proper cardio warmup and progressive weight lifting. Then I would get home and ate a proper dinner and a good sleep afterward.
I think morning workout is fine for people who didnít have to get up early or just doing cardio. Cardio is fine for me but weight lifting just drain so much out of me.
