Proponents of this piece of wisdom say that if your exercise in the morning, you jump-start your metabolism and therefore burn more calories during the day. There's absolutely no evidence that this is true. The best time to exercise is the time you want to do it, and are most likely to do it, whether it's morning, afternoon or evening. The only exception is for those with high blood pressure. Research has shown that your blood pressure remains low for up to 9 hours after an acute exercise bout. This phenomenon is called post-exercise hypotension. So for those with hypertension, exercise in the morning is advantageous, as it will keep your blood pressure low during the day when you need it most. 0 More: Daily Dose: This is why your vanilla or cinnamon flavoured e-cigarette is toxicHealth-in-Motion advertisement Other news Sex Can you masturbate too much?
