    Working full time and I try to work out 5 to 6 days a week but I am starting to burn out. Any tips to get more energy?

    I get up every morning at five to be at work by six. Work is NOT a desk job but one I am on my feet all day. Traffic is crazy by the time I get home. Around four in the afternoon I get really sluggish and have to drag my ass to the gym or workout from home. The last week has been really tough as far as having energy after work so I guess I want to know anyone elses tips for staying energized throughout the day.

    I find this stuff is amazing for both physical and mental energy. I throw back a can in the morning to get started in the morning and will down a can in the afternoon when I begin to flag at work.

    I started drinking it after my cancer therapy. It's touted by Lance Armstrong. I needed something and I figured he didnt have to promote anything he didnt want to ....and I figured if I was being snookered, I was being snookered by the best. But it turns out to be great.

    It's basically your B vitamins which are necessary for the mitochrondria to make energy. Then it has other stuff that helps the body make energy.

    I also like that it doesnt have caffeine. You dont get a jolt from caffeine or the jitters. It works very subtly. I just notice that a few minutes later, I am back to working at stuff.

    Once I was at the gym with my brother. He wore himself out, while I was still going. So I offered him a can of FRS and within a few minutes, he was up and back at the weights.

    Umm Water. Drink water. All the damn time. Seriously have a Nalgene attached to your hand at all times and make it go everywhere with you.

    Water is proven to make you as alert focused and awake as coffee and it has what, 0 calories and no caffeine, sounds pretty damn amazing.

    You don't need a 5 hour energy, you don't need some other sugar hyped energy drink like a Monster. Just drink more water. TRUST ME, i am a swimmer who has to wake up very early, go to class all day, then stay up and do more studying and then another swim practice and water works, and it is freaking good for you, 2 birds meet stone.

    Food. Slow carbs; protein; caffeine; exercise; avoid being hungry.

    Nutritious food, water/hydration, plenty of sleep, and fun/laughter.

    As much sleep as possible without being fired or breaking up a relationship. And if the job is crappy or the relationship is on the fritz, think about canning those too icon_razz.gif

    For me, diet is mostly fat, protein. No sugar, low carbs. Caffeine before a workout can help.

    Ah yes..


    WHERE DOES THE CAFFEINE COME FROM AND WHY IS IT IN FRSĀ® PRODUCTS?
    Caffeine in FRSĀ® products is naturally occurring and comes from green tea extract.


    It isn't enough that I notice it tho. Not like drinking coffee or tea that I can feel. The affect of FRS is very subtle.

    This^^

    Rest is often overlooked. If you are working out and have a physical job then maybe you need a bit more rest than others. Also quality of sleep matters.

    Keep in mind that Vitamin B is water soluble. So your body will only absorb as much as it needs and you will pee the rest away.
