Exercise

When walking for exercise will you get a better workout walking during the day when it is hot and you sweat more or at night or does it not matter?

Walking during the day means that your body must use more energy to keep you cool, since your body won't need to cool you as much during the night you'll burn slightly more energy during the day. The same goes for cold, the colder the more energy goes to heating you up. Also, walking during the day is better for your eyes, since when walking at night you have to deal with the sharp contrast between the darkness of night and the brightness of city lights. If you're walking to build muscle you probably won't notice any difference, if you're walking for cardio reasons go during the day, the heat will cause you to use more energy and will (psychologically) give you the will to even be out there. Honestly, there's not really any differences other then really minute ones. Walk when it's convenient, but do it regularly. Try to walk at the same times every day/night.

You will see muscle development after exercise, not during.

What kind of work do you do? are you sitting at a desk or something? Its important to rest your muscles after an intense workout. Whether you're napping at home, or being lazy at work, your muscles grow better during rest after a workout, rather than with more exercise. Which is why overtraining is ineffective, and rest is important.

Exercise is very important for pregnant women to relieve stress, and build more stamina. You can do mild exercise during pregnancy such as brisk walking, low-impact aerobics, swimming is also a good exercise.

After. Your body will use the protein you gain afterwards to reheal your body from the damage you did during the workout.
