    Lately I've been quite tired. I know my sleep schedule doesn't help. But is there a way I can get energized right before working out? This week I've been quite lazy and whenever I try to workout I get tired way too fast. And I was wondering if there's a way to actually get more energized right before a workout if possible? Know any ways?

    ^ Haha, thumbsup for that :lolol:

    Try to eat a banana, it's very rich in carbohydrates which means it will give you a quick energy boost.
    There's also the protein bars, but id go with those after the workout for muscle recovery.

    Basically, all you need to do is watch very carefully your diet.

    The best way is to listen to some good music during, imho. Or have a cuppa some time before.

    I go for a 5 km run after work in the evenings, and sometimes i haven't had enough sleep last night and thats a major impact, I believe its important to get enough sleep before exercise of any kind.
    next up if lack of energy it can seriously affect motivation and a proper fitness regime, so my technique is to eat a banana, a granola bar, or anything loaded with carbs like say a peanut butter sandwich they give you instant energy and a cup of coffee.
    and after exercising I drink a can of sportswater to rehydrate and replace lost salts.

    and for music I listen to a mix of NIN,White Zombie, electronica like orbital, crystal method, apollo 440,
    and some relaxing new age music like karunesh
