Dave’s Diary: Set the Sweat Clock for Five P.M.

We spend a good deal of time on the Morning News talking about health and getting in shape…must be a baby boomer thing but once we are committed to work out, what time do we jump in?  Answer– 5 pm. According the a study from Albany Medical College in New York, the risk of injury during exercise is lowest between 3 and 6 pm. At 5 pm, most of us will find our muscle strength, flexibility, hand-eye coordination and lung function at their peak.

There’s more to it than just that.  The whole body rhythm/internal clock thing comes into play as well in that the afternoon exercise time frame is also the best to keep your circadian rhythm in sync. A late-afternoon stroll, jog or workout will help maintain the timing of your internal clock.

But if you can’t exercise then – no problem. It is better to exercise whenever you can than to not exercise at all.
