For example, if your primary goal is to burn off as much body fat as possible, then morning exercise (before breakfast) is the best time to exercise because your blood glucose will be low and your body will have to use more fat as a fuel source.
Even though the research says that this is not the case, anecdotally it makes sense and fitness professionals and bodybuilders have been doing it for years! Plus, if you combine it with a thermogenic, like XLR8 Thermogenic, which has the effect of mobilising more fat from the fat stores, as well as boosting your metabolism, then the fat-burning effects will be enhanced even further.
If, on the other hand, the primary benefit from your workout routines is to increase your fitness level then any other time of the day is best (after you've eaten something and therefore increased your blood glucose and muscle glycogen stores). Higher fuel stores in your body means you can train harder for longer.
Since improvements in your fitness level is mainly based on the intensity, and to a lesser extent, the duration of the aerobic exercise being performed, it is best to keep your blood glucose, muscle glycogen and liver glycogen at a reasonable level so your body can fuel your working muscles.
Finding the time to exercise is the hardest aspect for most people especially when they have so many other commitments with work and family. As a result, exercise timing becomes less important compared to simply getting the sessions done!
Nevertheless, there are of course many other factors that can influence the body's utilisation of fuel.
