Take care of yourself better–you don’t need exercise energy drinks! Those energy drinks are expensive too! And, some are loaded with calories. There’s a better way to get the energy you need to work, live and exercise and it starts with YOU!

Are you having trouble finishing your workouts because you run out of energy? There could be several reasons:

1) The timing of your exercise selection is important. High intensity exercise such as speed work, interval training (high intensity to low intensity rotation), one-legged exercises, etc. should be performed at the beginning of your workouts when you are fresh. Your body’s neuromuscular system is highly fatigue-prone at high intensities. Performing these exercises in a fatigued state will compromise what you are trying to accomplish.

2) Perform compound exercises such as squats, deadlifts, lunges, bench press and bentover rows early in your workout. Compound exercises work multiple joints and major muscle areas. You need to be fresh to do them properly. Single joint, less demanding exercises such as bicep curls and calf raises should be done later in your workout.

3) Eat properly during the day (meals every 3-4 hours) and at least 1-2 hours before your workout so you’re not running on fumes.

4) Get enough sleep. If you are sleep-deprived, you won’t be able to adequately complete a demanding workout. According to research, most of us need 7-8 hours of sleep every night.

5) Keep your workout time at 1 hour or less. You don’t need marathon training sessions to have effective workouts.

6) If you are diabetic, you may need to bring a snack to eat during and after your workout.

7) Don’t take on an advanced workout before you are ready for it. For instance, you may have to “work up” to being able to do high intensity interval cardio sessions.
