I looked up which is better and Google seems to give plenty articles supporting either.

I'm guessing it depends on the person's work/study schedule, being fat or not, type of exercise, exercise goals, etc.

What are some factors to consider as to when one should exercise, assuming work/study schedule is sufficiently flexible?

If you don't have know medical problems (especially cardiac) you may exercise in the morning. This also make you burn more calories during the day. However, if you have cardiovascular problems you may prefer doing exercise in the late afternoon, since testosterone hormone secreted early in the morning that may cause some heart beat abnormalities and can give you hard time.

    "testosterone hormone secreted early in the morning that may cause some heart beat abnormalities " got any scientific studies/biology texts backing that claim? – John Aug 10 '16 at 11:58

    @bantandor It's not incumbent upon us to search for a claim you make. If there are studies, you should reference them. Telling someone to search for themselves is not helpful. – rrirower Aug 10 '16 at 12:44
