If you want to stay consistent in your training (it's the number one way to improve performance, so you should) then working out in the morning is your best bet to make sure you don't miss workouts. But there are other benefits to morning workouts than just consistency.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

  • Practical tips for getting the most out of your morning workouts (incl. warm-up, fueling, etc.)
  • When to train fasted and when not to
  • How morning workouts may make you burn more calories (the EPOC effect) and sleep better
  • Why even though some research indicates that endurance performance may be peaking in the afternoon or evening, this effect is reversible through adaptations (ie. working out in the morning)
  • How the potential performance boost later in the day likely doesn't apply to triathletes anyway due to a) mental fatigue due to cognitively demanding jobs and b) typical race start times
