I mentioned In a previous thread I have been training for about a year with the intention of getting carded
I have 2 kids who are demanding and a physical job that take most of my spare time but I average about an hour a day hard training involving strength technique and fitness
How can I legally improve my energy as I would love to be able to do more or at least not feel so tired
Any ideas from boxers,trainers,fitness fanatics
I'm willing to try any reasonable suggestions

Yeah, comes down to proper nutrition and a regular sleep pattern. More vegetables, salad stuffs and fruit in your diet.

What about supplements
Energy or protein etc do they genuinely help your training or is it unnecessary for somebody at amateur level

Protein aids muscle recovery following training sessions, protein powder is simply a supplement to your normal protein intake, so whether it helps will depend on whether you get enough protein in your diet to start with.

Personally I believe that for people with normal healthy diets it has little overall effect but being able to take a protein shake right after a training session is no doubt advantageous.

By energy supplements, do you mean like a pre workout? Or those stoopid energy drinks?

Neither will give you real energy like you get from a good nights sleep and good nutrition but a pre workout can help with your intensity in the gym I suppose.

Sleep well and eat well as offered above is sound advice. I find a small handful of jellybeans about 1/2 hour before I train gives a lift and I think when you tire later in your workout that extra sugar helps.

For gaining energy it is good to enhance stamina and running is best for this purpose. Every exercise is helpful ti gain energy. We can get energy from food. Protein shakes and fruit juices are also very good.

Energy can either be generated via food and resting or a stimulant (e.g caffeine), go anywhere apart from energy drinks for caffeine (although imo they are the most effective) green tea, coffee and or pro plus should do what you need.

Individually I believe that for people with regular healthy diet plans it has little overall impact but being able to take a proteins tremble right after a workout is no question beneficial.

There are pre-workout pills if you have $$$. Loading up with creatine will help with anaerobic stuff. Krill Oil or OMega 3 pills apparently help with energy levels (although I haven't tried this) Really can't beat proper rest and nutrition though. A lot of lifestyle factors contribute.

a good multi. before one I used to wonder why I felt so lethargic everyday. I recommend orange triad. careful to take it at night though if you're one of those people who take multis at night. I couldn't sleep because of the large amount of b vitamins. 30$ on eBay for 45 days.


I happened to be deficient of certain vitamins. my diet doesn't seem to cover all nutrients due to the fact that I'm losing weight.

Just be aware that the amount of protein most people need to ingest is surprisingly small. The body uses a lot of amino acids that were left over as by-produts of other processes. It recycles protein, basically. Ingest too much, and you can burn out your kidneys.

Also, most [rptein suppliments are basically podwered milk, so don't waste your money.


As for increased energy, there is no simple answer, sadly. Some simple stuff I'd recommend:


Stay away from processed sugar, and don't eat / drink anything with tons of ANY sugar, including fructose. (You want to avoid self-induced hypoglycemia.) In fact, it's a very good idea to try working out in the morning WITHOUT eating anything. This makes the body more efficient at breaking down glycogen stores, and it also trains you mentally to realize you don't need food in any 24 hr period for energy. (It virtually ALL comes from stored glycogen.)
- When I trained at Colorado Springs, back in the day (US cycling team) our coach Eddie B made us do a warm-up ride every morning of 20 miles, BEFORE breakfast, specifically for these reasons. To this day, I never eat anything until dinnertime, except coffee (which I shouldn't drink, but fuck it. :smile )

When you sleep, make sure there's plenty of oxygen in the room.

Keep regular sleep hours / patterns.

Avoid stress.

If possible, take a short nap in the middle of the day, or at least meditate.

^ After that, it gets complicated.

NO NO NO NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Lord, NO !


Eating sugary snacks is EXACtly what you should not do. See my paragraph above re self-induced hypoglycemia. What happens is you get a fast rise in blood sugar, followed by a CRASH in blood sugar, as the liver kicks in and starts the conversion / storage process. - And yet another problem is that when the liver converts that jellybean into glycogen, it uses some oxygen in the process.

Ask any nutritionist, or do a little research on that specific phrase. This is really a very serious issue.

McCoy, you probably like that initial rush, but don't realize how low your blood sugar (glucose level) is dropping afterwards. PLEASE believe me, it's the worst thing you can do. I TINY amount (if any) of that jellybean actually gets to your cells that day. It has to be stored as glycogen first. You basically burn what you ate the day / week before.

^ After that, it gets complicated.
My first meal is generally between 12-1 pm consisting of a salmon, rocket, salad and jalapeño tortilla wrap and that generally does me till me main meal later that night.

I couldn't agree more in reducing sugar from your diet and trying (pretty much impossible) to eliminate processed sucrose from your diet completely, the human body does not need this product and I feel it's detrimental to your over feeling of well being.

For the past month I've been doing a little experiment, I drink 3 litre (two 1.5 litre bottles) of water during my working day and drink no other liquids other than water. It may be placebo effect but the difference in my overall well being, feeling of freshness and alertness is night and day to when I'd have a few cups of tea or coffee through the day.

I'd recommend anybody to try it for a few weeks to see the difference.

Hi
You should concentrate on your diet and food , proper diet is very necessary for energy. Add fresh juice and milk in your diet. Milk is a big source of energy .

Eat some natural energetic foods rather than using the foods supplements to boost your energy naturally.
Drink fresh fruits juices, protein shake, and eat natural protein foods to boost your energy level in a natural way.
