Low energy
 
lately I've been struggling to get through my workouts. I was thinking about getting a pre-workout but I workout later in the evening so i was looking for something that won't keep my up all night. I was checking out smoking gun and bullnox, anyone try these? Was hoping to get some feedback

I would try just plain green tea and CLA supplements first, instead of a preworkout. I use preworkout, but only because I workout early in the morning or late afternoon. Green tea and CLA supps are much cheaper, and they're safe to take multiple times a day. If you do want to try a preworkout, I use Methyl Pump 3.0 (available at GNC).

You could also try a few days of lower-intensity workouts; so you're remaining active, but your muscles get a bit of a break.

I personally use coffee as a preworkout/energy booster. I don't like taking supplements with chemicals and ingredients I don't fully understand. You could also try bumping up your carb intake around your workout. This will ensure your body has the energy it needs to push through and train hard :)

Explore the Cause
 
When this happens with my clients I always ask a series of questions: Has anything changed in your life to make it harder to get through your workout? More stress, less sleep, weight gain, loss of conditioning - maybe after a vacation, etc.? Are you dieting? If so, are you eating enough of the right things to keep up your energy an maintain your muscle mass? Working out in the evenings is harder for a lot of people, but if you have always done it and are seeing a change, explore what might be causing the change.

I agree with you, pre workout should be the last solutions first try finding the route of the problem and eliminating it that way!

i workout afternoon so can someone tell me which is the best time for workout?

You should make sure you don't have a vitamin deficiency or something of that nature. Vitamin D is a big one

Low energy
 
There are good carbs and bad carbs, and most Americans eat way too many of the latter. Refined grains and simple sugars cause spikes and crash in your blood glucose levels that ultimately leave you feeling wiped out.

What time of night at you working out at? That might be another thing to consider is if you're just exhausted from your day.

Thanks for sharing an information. I like your suggestion.

I don't know about these ones that you've mentioned but I don't recommend using pre-work as your body will get used to it and you'll need it almost forever to maintain the same workout strength.

Low energy is a everyday problem that have people who are losing weight

Great information.very well done.good for our health

I always had the same problems with sleeping after preworkout too and I recently found the solution. I now just take beta-alanine which is the main other ingredient in most preworkouts.

In my workout routine, i usually do hard exercises in the morning, and after that i take lunch, that helped me in losing my fats.

Being overweight or underweight can cause tiredness. That’s because your body has to work harder than normal to do everyday activities. If you’re underweight, you have less muscle strength, and you may feel tired more quickly.
