There are many people who follow, or are forced to follow, strict exercise routines. People do whatever they can do stay fit. Fitness enthusiasts are always ready to put in some extra effort and compromise comfort just to stay fit. Apart from the daily gym, people do jogging, cycling and various other things to stay in shape most common of which is jogging. You would have often heard of the benefits of jogging.
Getting up early to jog
It is the common opinion of people that jogging is most beneficial when done early morning. Most people blindly follow this opinion. They get up early morning and go for jogging. To do so, they compromise their valuable sleep. Many people like to stay in the comfort of their bed early in the morning. Getting up early is not comfortable for many. However, for the sake of staying fit, they get up early and go for jogging.
Getting enough sleep
For an early morning jog, many people compromise their sleep. However, you should prevent doing this. You should make sure that you give your body enough sleep. Sleep is essential for the metabolism of your body. If your body does not get enough sleep, you would gain some extra fat and carbohydrate. This is certainly not good for your health. If you have a habit of waking early, it doesn’t matter if you get early or not. If you are someone who loves sleep, you should not try to wake up early to jog.
Jogging early in morning is actually not fruitful
You would be surprised by the fact that jogging early in morning is not as fruitful as you would think it to be. You may not believe the fact, but a recently held research has shown that human do not reach their athletic peak just after getting out of their bed. Instead, the athletic peak is reached long after you wake up from sleep. Yes, it is indeed true that you perform the best long after getting out of your bed.
The peak performance time depends on the time you wake up. It does not matter if you are someone who wakes up early or one who loves staying in the bed late. Even if you like getting up early, morning jogging does not help you a lot. According to the recent research if you are someone who wakes up early, you are supposed to perform best around mid-day. On the other hand, if you consider yourself to be a night owl and someone who wakes up late, you will perform best around 8 pm. If you consider yourself to be in between, your peak time shall be around 4 pm.
A great proof of this fact is the performance of English football players in Champions League. English players, who have a habit of playing in the afternoon for the league matches are seen to perform badly in Champions league matches, which start at night. On the contrast, they perform excellently in the league matches.
