Why would "ele se exercita na manhã" be wrong?

For saying the period of the day using morning, in portuguese we say in the morning = de manhã, in the afternoon = à tarde, in the evening / at night = à noite. Ele se exercita na manhã wouldnt make sense.

Got it, thanks

Some people use "de tarde" and "de noite", but they are not correct. We would say "na manhã" when it is specific, examples "na manhã de sábado", "na manhã de sua entrevista" and so on :)

It wouldn't be wrong to say 'na manhã' but in this case it would specify which morning I exercise. Both answer should be right in this question.
