    i'm sure it all depends on your schedule, but is there any certain time that is most beneficial?

    No, it doesn't matter. Work hard, eat good and you will get results regardless of what time you work out or how many cocks you suck at what time of the day and how often you jerk off or what type of bicep curls you do wearing flip flops. Stop worrying about bullshit and do what matters.

    I was taught in college that late afternoon was best. I spent about 1 minute looking and that still seems to be the consensus.

    Just go whenever you have the energy and feel like you can workout the hardest. For some people, that's the morning. For me, it's between 5pm and 8pm.

    the best time is when you actually get off OT posting about it, and go.

    I workout 9-10pm, simply because thats when I have the time to do it. Just do whatever works for you :dunno:

    Read somewhere, 2 and 7 hours after you wake up are the most optimal times. But I wouldn't lend too much credence to that.

    I workout at 8pm right after work, I'm kinda getting my second wind from just doing nothing all day.

    Working out super early in the morning makes me feel great for the rest of the day, (especially when I hit prs) so I vote that

    Don't work out on an empty stomach. Plan a pre- and post-work out snacks.

    Thinking about and talking about working out IS working out.

    unless you're like lance armstrong, or something, you aren't going to see improvements in your long term performance by delaying a workout a few minutes.
    though, if you're preparing for some kind of competition, you might want to try to train at the same time of day during which you will compete
