  • Often when I feel my energy lag, I dind that if I change the song on my iPod, I get my energy back. Usually it was just too slow or not motivating enough of a song.
    Good article. I think it's important to remind people that after working out for many months in a row that a break is often necessary. I find that taking a week off a couple of times a year really helps me reach my overall goals, although it seems counter productive. :)
    Very insightful! Thanks.
  • Great article. Thank you.
  • Thanks for the article- I've found when I forget to take my B vitamins, I feel the slump!
    I stay at 20-25 net carbs a day, do 60 minutes a night on my gazelle, & have more energy at 55 than I did at 25 when I ate the higher level of carbage you suggest.
    Thanks, but no thanks.
    That a great article and whole of helpful tips. Awesome read!
  • These are great guidelines...I am not a morning workout person. I'm lucky if I can get to work on time most days! I work out at the gym at my work and they have great exercise classes that keep things from getting boring. Yoga, pilates, cardio, when I am bored with my typical strength/cardio routines they are great. Mixing up your workouts is awesome cross training to hit spots you might be missing during a usual workout. Getting back into pilates and yoga made me realize how very weak my core had become. Now I try to make sure to a variety of core exercises with my strength routine.
  • good tips... iron and water many times never even considered, you get an A!
  • Great article. I run during the week and do Bikram yoga on the weekends. I definitely relate to the point about giving your body a rest. Yes, I I'm usually tired in the mornings (probably because I don't get enough sleep), but when I am really really run down and exhausted, I know it's a signal for me to take a break. And yes, I feel a lot better the next day. So, remember, listen to your body.
  • great article. These are things we need to be reminded of. I combat boredom on the treadmill by picking up the speed during commercials. I plan my treadmill time around my favorite shows.
  • Good information in the article. I can always tell during my workout if I didn't drink enough water before starting it.
    Also to change up your routine to keep motivated really helps me.
  • Last week I was doing a workout DVD. Not long after starting, I tripped then started stumbling and losing my balance. I stopped halfway through, afraid I was going to hurt myself but no knowing what the problem was. Reading this article, I can see that some of the things mentioned may have been contributing factors. I'll start paying more attention to the state of my body and mind before working out, to maximize my time and efforts.
