Which time is the best for doing exercise?

Anytime you feel comfortable. There is no need for a ‘all or nothing’ mentality either. 5 minutes is better than nothing at the end of the day. I’ve heard that exercise the first thing before eating, due to your system being at it’s most basic with low levels etc, although I’m not entirely convinced it came from a reputable running source.

Research on lung funciton, body rhythms, temperature, and hormone levels says one thing - to exercise around 6 pm. Surveys on exercise habits say another - to exercise in the morning before other commitments distract you, or during the day when you have a free period of time. Let's explore the pros and cons of when to exercise. Mornings Pros: • The majority of people who exercise consistently do so early in the day. It is easier to form the exercise habit through morning exercise. • Fewer distractions and schedule interruptions. • Can make time for exercise by getting up a bit earlier. • Raises your heart rate and metabolism to burn more calories earlier in the day. • Gives a feeling of physical energy for hours. • Improves your mental acuity for hours. • Cooler temperatures in summer. • Air pollution is lowest in the morning. • The body adjusts to your exercise time, so if you are training for a morning sports event, train in the morning. Cons: • Body temperature is at its lowest 1-3 hours before awakening, making morning a time of naturally lower energy and blood flow. • Cold, stiff muscles may be more prone to injury - be sure to warm up well before doing a higher intensity workout, and do gentle stretching. • If you do not enjoy morning exercise, you won't easily form a habit by choosing a morning workout time. • Because body temperature and hormones are higher in late afternoon, you probably get the same or better calorie-burning effects later in the day.

Early morning is the best time to exercise. Both our body and mind will be fresh which will help us to do brisk exercise. I can say this confidently because I have tried doing exercise both in the morning and in the evening. I feel very energetic to do exercise in the morning and that keeps my whole day fresh. I used to skip my exercise when I used to do it in the evening owing to various unavoidable reasons like sudden guests, shopping, laziness etc. Morning walk also soothens our mind.

it is good to exercise in the morning before you eat anything. That is when your blood sugar is at its lowest, and your body can't pull sugar from the blood for energy so it pulls from the fat stores. I always exercise before eating anything.
