I read a study the other day that said it was not a good idea to exercise within 2 hours of going to bed; or eat, watch tv, and play on the computer 1 hour before bed.
I only agree with that for one reason: after a day of work, chances are the last thing you want to do is exercise!
Your best bet is to workout in the morning. There are many advantages, an important one is LIFE. Things come up, a session gets skipped, and now your weight loss goal is postponed. Another is you get your workout done and the rest of the day is yours!
But if you have to workout at night (like many of my clients do) do not underestimate the stretch time. The stretch calms down your heart rate in a relaxing way and helps your body regulate itself. Finishing your workout, driving home to a crazy house, then trying to sleep sounds almost impossible. If you are in a hurry, turn off the radio on the way home, or do that in addition to stretching. You will find yourself calm and relaxed, ready for a GREAT night of sleep!
