7 min and find that it is invigorating to push yourself. I’d try it and if you notice that a day or two later, you are feeling depleted, then back off. But if you haven’t tried 7 min yet, you might want to just “go for it” and psych yourself up for an adventure. When I know I am pushing myself outside my comfort zone I try to do it early in the day so I have time to recover, reflect, and then sleep well.
No idea what the studies say, but I don’t think there’s a problem with doing it in the evening, as long as you do it at the same moment/time every day. The important thing is getting the habit!
As for when to exercise, it’s important to fit your schedule. If you’re trying to combat your schedule too much, it’ll cause you to stop sooner. If it fits into your schedule later in the day easily, you’ll be more likely to continue. I do mine either at noon before a protein packed lunch or when I get home from work. Because I’m not a morning person and again, I need to be rested to work well. That fits my schedule so I’m more likely to continue working out because I have to reason not to.
No I don’t think it would be a complete disaster. Have you been exercising? If not, then I think you should go with your gut instinct and start with 4 minutes of HIT with the view to gradually increasing the time over a period of the next 3 months.
Once you do, you can start experimenting what works better! Go for it!!!
