i usually train as early in the day as possible especially on HIIT days, but with shift patterns and family commitments it doesnt always work out that way.

Does training at different times of the day have much of an effect on progress?

Some say that it's better to train later in the day because you're stronger then. Others say you adapt to whatever time of day you make a habit of working out in. I find it's easier to remain committed if you workout early before the day's distractions and stresses get in your way.

Whenever you have most energy. when I go back to school in 2 weeks, I am going to have to try and get up at 5am in the morning to train from 6am-7am before school.

I have read on ironman forums and bodybuilding forums in the supplement section that people take supplements to help get them through their workouts...I am thinking maybe getting no explode or jacked or superpumped 250 or something so that I can start being consistant with my workouts and get motivated in doing it..especially early in the morning.

right now I am trying to find a good pre-workout supplement to help me train well and give me energy to workout.

Different for everybody. For me it's definitely late afternoon, evening second. Morning is in last place for me.

I've read cautions about spine issues early in the morning when the intervertebral discs are still hyperhydrated from being unloaded through the night. I'd be especially cautions about anything that involved rotation while loaded.

You got to be awake/up for an hour before any weight training.
Your spine has to dehydrate. Ever felt a back pain when you bent over to tie your shoes early in the morning? That's why.

Do it when you fell the most energetic/have got the time. I begin my workout usually around 2000-2030 (8pm-830pm for you Americans)

I'd much rather work out in the evening, so all day if some crazy crap happens I just think "ah well who cares, in a few hours I'll be pumping iron"... :)

I can't remember where, but I read somewhere that testosterone is it's highest at like 3 hours and 11 hours after waking up?

Not sure how accurate that is, though.

The majority of supplements are worthless beyond belief. Nothing legal will be able to push your testosterone levels, at any point in the day, beyond their genetic potential.

Things that affect testosterone positively the most:

Sleep
Sex
Food

Which are, ironically, my three favorite things.

Haha yes, that too, of course.

Some of the precursors can spike your test, but it won't allow test to be in your system for any given length of time. Probably why the andros and norandros haven't really been good for much other than aiding in some of the side effects, being acne, test conversion to estrogens, etc. CA, you are still young, don't take a chance on using precursors to shut down your own ability to produce test.
