What is the best time to lift?

maybe I'm over thinking this but I recently got back into lifting while I was recovering from a concussion. I'm in the military and they put me on a limited profile and the only way to productively spend my designated physical training time was to lift. All I'm looking to do is gain a little lean muscle mass and increase my strength. I'm not looking to get big. So now that I have to attend PT I have a couple options of when to lift:

1. before PT
Pros: it's a good morning workout and I can use the base gym
Cons: I normally do enough that my arms and shoulders are exhausted so I'd drag *** at PT

2. on non PT days
Pros: Can lift before work in the AM
Cons: unless I get a gym membership I'd be limited to two days a week

3. After work on PT days
Pros: can use the base gym
Cons: maybe the timing of a late evening workout.

Anybody have any inputs? Right now I'm just using whey as an additional protein source post workout in the morning. Would I be better served by casein if I switch to the evening or should I consume whey post workout and then casein a couple hours before I go to sleep?

I didn't read the thread but whenever you have the most energy. If you are too tired and half *** it then its pointless.

In general, any weight bearing should be done later in the day (past mid-late afternoon) because the joints need time to lubricate, especially the spine.


Where are you stationed?

Obviously morning time is the best for the workout but if you have limited time you can do it at evening. If you do cardio and weight workouts both then do cadio at morning and weight workout at evening.
