Go ahead and sleep through your alarm and skip your morning workout. You’ll get a better workout in the evening, after work, anyway. According to research from the University of North Texas, you’ll go faster – and last 20% longer – if you exercise between 5pm and 7pm. That’s because, as the day wears on, our circadian rhythms gradually raise our hormone levels, our body temperature, and our V-O-2-Max – which is also known as our aerobic capacity. As a result – cardio workouts feel easier in the evening.
