How do you stay energized after working out? I usually want to nap after.

Alessio Michel
I enjoy the shower and a slow stretch. Afterwards I am tired, but I also feel energized. I look forward to bed in the evening šŸ™‚

Drink a lot of water. Water is the best energiser ( hydration) and it has no calories

After working out, you should take a power nap. It makes you ready for a long day.

I hear ya! LOL!!!!
Generally , lately ,
I have been trying out different PRE/PRO VITAMINS AND MINERALS AND Protein shakes. Not only just because of the nutrients that you need to build strong and lean healthy big muscles…..LOL BUT.BECAUSE MOST OF THEM , OR AT LEAST
THE SHAKES THAT I HAVE BEEN trying lately , have had nutrients that help your body recover. So most of the time I do feel completely EXTREMELY
E X H A U S T E D ! ! ! !
But the workout is so Exhilerating when ya feel the burning SENSATIONS AND START TO SEE RESULTS SO THAT HONESTLY GETS ME PUMPED EXTREMEMELY. I then try to drink a ton of water/ any fluids basically because I am usually E X T R E M E L Y
T H I R S T Y AS
H E C K LOLOLOLOL.
KEEPING YOURSELF REALLY HYDRATED IS NOT JUST SUPER DUPER IMPORTANT….
BUT , HOWEVER
A L S O GIVES YOU A
NATURAL ENERGY BOOST.
BUT ALL IN ALL, IF AFTER ALL THESE METHODS DO NOT WORK , YOU MIGHT JUST WANT TO TRY TO DO YOUR WORKOUTS AT THE VERY E N D
OF YOUR DAY…. LIKE SAY R I G H T
BEFORE YOU HIT THE SACK….

I usually reward myself after the workout with TV or other media. I might even do laundry while watching or some other chore to keep myself alert and active.

You do it enough times that something interesting happens, the brain treats it like an everyday event and not something special or unique. If you're like me you'll end up getting energy because you don't put it on a pedestal

I actually want to take a nap as well. Iā€™m still trying to figure out the best way to stay energised after exercising. In the meantime I use the magic of a good cup of coffee.

Probably you are trying to do too much, and because of that, you feel tired after the exercise. Since I am still trying to form a habit, I do it gradually with fun (I sometimes watch my favorite YouTube videos while exercising). I hope this helps šŸ™‚

Have a energy protein shake. One that is high in vitamin B. It will replace the nutrients lost while exercising, will give a energy boost and will help with other health benefits as well. If you don't have a protein shake, try eating apples. They great for energy boosting and super healthy. Drink lost of water too. Dehydration can also cause you to have low energy levels.

I keep it moving. I have been working out before work, so I have to keep going to finish getting ready and be to work in time. Maybe employ a similar strategy by planning workouts before work/class?

I usually try to eat within 1-2 hours after working out. It replenishes my energy. I used to workout in the evening but I gained a lot of energy after my workout so I changed it to the Morning or middle of the day. You have to find out when it is the most optimal for you to workout and what type of workout. If I do a cardio workout I feel a lack of energy and I need to get fast carbohydrates if not I will feel fatigued the rest of the day or if it is evening I go to bed. When I do heavy weight training I usually feel less fatigued, it burns less glycogen in the body. I try to get some protein and try to feel after the nice burn in the muscles. This works very well for me. You will feel drowsy and lack of energy for a little bit but you will get more energy with time and proper sleep. Spend energy to gain energy!!!

Luisa Henninger
I only feel that way if 1) I do Low intensity exercises without high intensity ones 2)I genuinely lack good quality sleep

Quirino Martins
When I'm done with exercise I won't let myself sit down. I'll get home and get straight into action- for example going to my computer and doing work or jumping into the shower.

Miguel Mendes
I was the same way. I recently discovered to use that to my benefit. I've begun working out at night before I go to bed. I've noticed I get a better night sleep since that is what my body desires post workout.

I'm conscious what my goal with working out is. I don't care about appearances, the only thing that matters to me is increasing the probability of me living longer.

Most longevity benefits of training can be achieved by working out 30 mins, which is exactly what I do. Concretely, I work out at 8:00 – 8:30 every day before going to my office.

I make sure each workout session is fun and not to tough, this way I don't get tired. Usually when people get tired it's because they think a workout session needs to be 2 hours at max intensity. I does not. Ironically, it's more about putting the effort into making a habit than putting in the effort at the gym.

As an example, today I went to the gym and biked for 5k at moderate speed while reading the news on my phone. I then biked 500m at full capacity, and that was it. This type of training gives most health benefits, in terms of longevity, and takes almost no time.

I was in and out of the gym in 30 min, including a shower, pumped up and ready to kick all my work related deadlines right in the …

Try having a cool shower after your sessions to revitalise your body and wake up your mind. I also like to have a smoothie after exercising because tge natural sugars from tge fruit & veg give me a little boost šŸ™‚

Karla Johansen
If you're that tired after working out, you may not be getting adequate nutrition or sleep… Or your workout may be excessive.

Making sure you get adequate electrolytes (there are supplements) is also important. If your sweat isn't salty, your probably low.

Perry Flores
Hi, I don't have that issue but maybe you can try having a cup of coffee after working out, setting an alarm for 30 minutes and relaxing/meditating/power napping after your workouts? The coffee will kick in by the time the alarm goes off and you will hopefully feel better having a little rest. This is easiest if you're at home but maybe you can find a quiet spot even at the gym.
