Mark’s Monday! March, 24.

Good Afternoon guys and girls!
I am honored to host this new blog on the CrossFit Amsterdam website. I love sharing knowledge and information that may help you becoming a more awesome person! What to expect from this blog? You will see articles, movies and other pieces that I think are very interesting and usefull. Maybe even something I wrote myself. Don’t expect only pro-CrossFit stuff. The power of CrossFit is that we want to be good at everything so we want to look at everything to come to a solid conclusion. And that means taking some more critical information into account as well.
Today we will be looking at something many of you probably have thought about at some point. When to workout? And I don’t mean on which day of the week. I mean at what time of the day should you workout? Some people may say it is better to workout in the morning because it will give you a good challenge and that will make you better. Others might tell you that they only workout at night because it provides a good end of the day so your body can relax. Me? I am a science-guy and I tend to give proper scientific research a bit more value (although there are exceptions).
Dutch ‘Bayesian Bodybuilder’ Menno Henselmans wrote this piece on when is the best time to workout. A nice read which gives some interesting conclusions. Enjoy!
