I like to train when I'm most awake, but since I do an alternating afternoon/night shift job this often changes. When I was doing 9-5 work however I was an afternoon trainer, I just can't get my ass out of bed any earlier in the morning and get motivated enough to go to the gym. Me and alarm clocks have a pretty rocky relationship.
I hate the crowds when I get there in the afternoon, my gym isn't exactly a 'hardcore training' gym so there's no vibe to work off. I'm only 1 of about 4 or 5 guys I know of who deadlift and I'm the only one who lifts more than 100kg.
I always used to train in the afternoon when I had been awake and eaten enough but since the job change and the person I train with prefers mornings I'[ve been doing mornings for a while - and I don't mind it. As long as I get some food and a shake in before hand it sets me up for the day quite nicely having trained early on.
i like the afternoon, im wide awake and ive gotten a couple meals in me so i feel full and energized. i do personal training so it worksout well i can schedule my clients around my training and the gym isn't real busy
idk how ppl lift in the morning...i've tried it before and i just feel like i'm half asleep and it's impossible to train hard, mayb if i were just fooling around in the gym (which i don't do) but i could never have a productive training session in the AM....i prefer night, anytime after 7pm
