    Working out before an interview
    Deputy87 posted:
    I have a very important interview tomorrow. Would it be a good idea to exercise tomorrow or just take it easy & rest? The interview is in the afternoon. Thanks
    Louise_WebMD_Staff responded:
    Good luck with the interview. I would think that as long as you can shower after your workout, there would be no reason not to workout before the interview. Taking it easy and resting beforehand wouldn't work for me at all. It would just give me that much more time to worry.
    R_Weil responded:
    It?s too late for that interview, but research shows that people score better on tests after exercise due to increase blood flow to the brain, and they do better on other tasks as well, so it?s possible that that could translate to a sharper interview. Many people prefer to keep their exercise routine on stressful days. It helps to ground them and keep their focus. Take care, Rich
