Timing tweaks exercise

Nat Rev Endocrinol. 2019 Aug;15(8):440-441. doi: 10.1038/s41574-019-0229-z.


Exercise is the elixir of health. However, timing can boost or blunt exercise performance and health benefits. Two complementary studies used transcriptomic and metabolomic tools to dissect how time of day affects the impact of exercise. The findings open new avenues for optimizing timing of physical activity to boost its benefits further.
