If you have the energy when you get home GO FOR IT some exercise is better then none, besides if you try it and it doesnt work out then you do something else. I work shift work and have no energy when Im done so I make myself get up early and do it before work, the up side is I have more energy througout the day either way try to fit it in especially if your trying to lose weight. Good Luck!

Definitely - It's been so hot lately that I can't run outside until 9:00 pm when it cools down, and it works fine. They say the "optimum" time is in the morning, but I am NOT a morning person, so I fit in in whenever I can. Any exercise is better than none!

actually, some studies have shown that working out in the evening is better for those who suffer from exercise induced asthma. So it depends on who you are what time is "optimum." I usually head to the gym around 10pm. I'm sooooooo not a morning person.

I think exercise is great at night, especially if you are a semi- insomniac. It tires you out. I usually exercise when I get home from work and I have no trouble sleeping!

I exercise in the evening as well. I find I have FAR more energy on my nightly runs than I do my Saturday morning run! I prefer it but I guess every person is different. Just find what works best for you.
