All right, so since I got on vacations, I decided to go to the gym in the morning rather than the evening. The change was weird, exercising in the morning is so similar and different from doing it later. The main difference of course, is that in the morning you're well-rested and all, but in the afternoon you're all full of energy from the food you ate. So, which is better?

It depends on what you want. If you want to have the day free for yourself, you should go in the morning. This has a few benefits too. You stay energetic throughout the day (if you want to nap, then this sucks, though). You're also going to be hungry all day long, this is good, but don't overeat. It means your metabolism is working. The thing about going in the morning, though, is that if you're taking a class, you're probably going to be the only one there.

In the evening, you've already got the energy you needed from food and you can go and burn it off. It's great because you don't arrive tired (unless you had a busy day) and, well, more people go to the gym. It's great because after the workout you can socialize. The problem is that if you're having a hard time, nobody's going to be able to pay attention to you, the trainer has his hands full.

Of course, in the end the effect's almost the same. You get off your lazy ass and do shit. And, of course, that's kind of cool, because you can't eat while you're off your lazy ass. It all comes down to personal taste. I, for one, rather go in the morning than in the evening, but that's just me. Some people train at 10:00 p.m. (I've seen a few). So, yeah, do whatever you want.
