The morning workout
It is hard to say whether or not morning workouts are better. There is some consensus that working out in the morning gets your metabolism moving better for the rest of the day, others say that it does not matter what time of day you work out, just so it is a time of day that will fit into your schedule that you will stick to your workout plan.
If you're a morning person, then working out in the morning may be the best time of the day for you to work out. If you are going to work out in the morning, it is best to have something to drink and to eat a high carbohydrate snack before working out, since you have not taken in any food or liquid all night, and you can eat your breakfast after your exercise.
If you're not a morning person, then you are less likely to stick with a morning workout schedule, so it may be better for you to work out at lunchtime, in the afternoon, or in the evening. It will not help to work out in the morning if you will not stick to it. It is more important to stick to your working out than what time of the day you do it.
However, working out in the morning can have its benefits if you can stick to it. Working out in the morning gets exercising out of the way for the day, so you are more likely to make time for it and then actually do it. You will not have to worry about being too tired from your day's activities or worry about fitting it into your schedule for the day should other things come up. Most people feel a sense of accomplishment after working out, which may last throughout your day. Working out also gets oxygen and endorphins to your brain which are good for your thinking, your feeling of well-being, and your brain, so if you exercise in the morning, it may help you to perform better mentally throughout your daily activities. And as mentioned earlier, it can get your metabolism revved up for the rest of the day.
In summary, working out in the morning can have its benefits, but only if you will be able to stick to a morning workout schedule. Sticking to your workout schedule is much more important than what time of the day you workout.
