    Is it ok to work out before bed?

    So I have always worked out in the afternoon or before bed because I like to get a "decent" rest at night without having to wake up too early. However, is this actually worse for me? I never really felt like I've had too much trouble going to bed. If I am doing rigorous workouts I tend to work out in the afternoon, but if it is more routine I work out later. I never seemed to have a problem, but maybe it's because I just tire myself out. Most people usually work out in the morning, but I am more of a night owl and I get a second wind at night.

    Any feedback?

    Hi Bender B. Rodriguez

    Some people have trouble to get to sleep when they workout at night. As it's not your case, I think it's just fine.
    Personnaly I workout in the morning if I can because I feel more energetic, but if I have no choice, I do it at night and it's ok for me.

      If it works for you it’s no problem at all.

        I work out in the evening, sometimes after dinner if I haven’t had the time earlier. For the year that I was attending a 7am hiit class I felt like it took all day to have enough energy to function normally again. I like evening workouts better.

          Used to work out from 21:00 - 23:00, and the only way I could sleep after that was a proper cool down, shower & a good stretching routine. Slept better than usual!

            A late evening workout actually makes me sleep better personally.

              You can't work out before going to bed. It is advisable to train a few hours before going to bed. If you prepare before going to bed, you will hardly fall asleep because your body is in the mood for physical activity. And here you go to bed, and your body is still awake. It's the same with eating before you go to bed. In order not to strain your stomach while you sleep, your body has to rest. I used to exercise myself before going to bed, but my doctor advised me not to do that. After the class, I come in, go to bed and cover myself with my custom plaid. I ordered it from https://getcustomblanket.com/collections/dog-blanket, I am thrilled with the quality, but no one else has it.
