workout tired?

Austria TrolloTheTroll 
Whenever I start a workout I feel energized and aim for roughly 60 minutes of training with pauses, but after maybe 30 minutes I just dont have any energy left in me and I either do exercises poorly or do like 3 reps per set instead of usually 12 if you know why this is I would gladly accept your advice, when I was working out in gym for three hours (I know too long) I never had this problem :-(

Lack of motivation. I think u had to have a certain goal of reaching a ripped body/abs/bigger chest/or whatever when u worked out for 3 hours a day. Right now, u are lacking a specific goal, of how u wanna shape up ur body, or u wanna just be fit, or xyz. Once ur body gets the goal, I'm sure u will be able to carry your 1 hour workout completely.

3 ways to workout - strength, size or cardio. To gain strength use high intensity 2 times a week and lower intensity 2 times. Rest for 2 minutes between sets as you go to failure for low reps - no more than 5. For size higher reps again to failure but 12-15 reps per set. Cardio again higher reps and also throw in jump rope and kettlebell with running or cycling. With size and strength you need to up your protein intake and also REST daily. Muscle grows when you don't use it. Cardio requires more Carb intake and again REST - most failures or injury in training comes from a lack or stretching and rest.

Yes, you are right.. Anyway all i am saying is that you need enough food almost day before.. So if you have a good lunch and dinner with some snacks than you can workout without breakfast in the morning :) Also if you aim more for fat instead of carbs, it helps a lot

Yeah in the morning you're not running on carbs so for most people it's fine to exercise before breakfast. Once you eat some stuff during the day though it's important to keep the carbs supplied. And if you do really serious exercise eating once a day is gonna really cut into your ability to recover

definitely, but the point was to have good caloric surplus more than just two hours before a training session :) Because i remember how dry i was whne i was trying run just on carbs couple hours before :)

I used to eat 5-6 times a day and always ate something prior to workout. Of course it took some time for my body to adjust. After some months of intermitting fasting I'm fully comfortable with 20+ hours fast and I prefer fasted workout over eating something prior to training session. OMAD might be hard if you need 3k+ kcal, but you can always extend your eating window to 4-6 hours and have 2 meals, you will still get good results even if you fast for 18-20 hours instead of 23 hours and take 2 meals instead of 1.

I do calisthenics and yoga 6 times a week in the morning before going to work, it takes 1 hour or a bit more. I hit gym 2 times a month: intense whole body workout for 1 hour. My height is 183 cm and weight is 66-67 kg (sometimes I eat more, sometimes less). I don't take any gear, my goals are health and strength rather than gaining mass. My digestion isn't perfect, thus I prefer to stick to comfortable amount of food even if I lose some muscles because of undereating. So I'm in calorie deficit for the most of the time.

One-arm handstand is a dream, I'll keep grinding to achieve it... in the next years. :D

Thank you, i tried to follow many (thenx, fitnessfaqs and some tohers), but i think its cause because its not my top priority. And another excuse is that longer and heavier you are more difficult it is. Try to do it with 30kg on your vaist if you want to know how i feel :D

Personally I follow this philosophy: the more muscles you have the stronger you should be. If you have been focusing on bodybuilding and gaining muscles, yeah, it's just different type of training. I myself had to reduce gym routine to only 2 sessions per a month to focus on calisthenics because even if you do 300 kg deadlift it doesn't mean that you will be able to do some elements from advanced calisthenics, you will need highly specialized for that. As about weight, I already started adding weights to my calisthenics routine to get stronger, but of course not 30 kg, yet. :D Though I do weighted pull-ups and push-ups with 50 kg and 30 kg feels easy in these exercises, but I don't count it as my calisthenics routine since I usually do it during gym training sessions.

yes, calisthenics is basic physics.. shorter and lighter you are less strenght you need to do all skills. Longer and heavier you are than you need some incredible strenght. I did max 30kg pull ups and still cannot complete muscleup :D
2021-04-18 20:34

The more muscles you have the heavier you should be able to lift, that's also basic physics (F = m * a). ;) In bodybuilding you can have lot of muscles but it doesn't necessary correlate with your strength, in calisthenics you can have a lot of strength without too much muscles. Looking strong vs actually being strong. That's why I abandoned training for hypertrophy long time ago and focused on strength training. Last week I tried arm wrestling (without any practice at all) against 95 kg in my gym guy and we ended with a solid tie because no one could beat each other. Technically he gave up first though and I could have won because of better stamina, but I didn't really care since my real interest was rather testing myself than winning.

it's like caffeine, you will research it and say it is good for your health, but stay 2 months without taking anything that contains caffeine, chocolatte, soda, until you see better, it looks like you are a child again, now you think they will tell you that, or they’ll let you get euphoric and discouraged when you’re out, a human being can barely control your anxiety and depression with medication, it is not because there is no related research or anything that says it is bad is that it goes well, the human being still does not understand everything about the human body, does the experiment for 5 days without masturbating and goes to the gym, you will train for 1 hour and will leave with energy left over, you have to test it for yourself so you understand

I think its also about your mindset ? Maybe your nutrition ? If im into my chest/biceps workout, after 20-30 mins im so hyped i couldnt stop before my muscles arent completely antienergized. Eating a lot of vegetables atm, paired with a little fruit, a lot protein and a small amount of carbs. 8-9h sleep every night. If youre into your routine you shouldnt have a problem with an one hour workout.

you need carbs to have energy hope ur not on keto or some shit you dont usually have much energy left after 40min workout and thats ok but few advices for you do main lifts you have that day in the beginning after your warmup such as bench, deadlift etc rest of your workout fill with accessory work such as lat pulldowns, dumbbell curls, tricep etc if you are not in a hurry you can have longer resting periods between sets up to 3min thats perfectly fine
2021-04-17 18:12
This is how I feel working out at home, but not at the gym, so my conclusion is that it is more of a mental/motivational thing than an energy/tiredness thing If you are doing all of the normal things people will recommend (sleep, food, water, etc.) don't have any tips other than maybe try to change your environment or time of day when you work out, maybe that helps

Another factor is that I used to work out with a friend every time and now I am just alone in my room, and I think that also makes my motivation lower I used to not be able to sleep because I worked out so late so I started doing it at 3-5pm, maybe I have a bit less energy because Im still tired from school etc, I will see if I can also find a dedicated "gym room" so I get into the right mindset right away, thanks!

Aren’t u only supposed to take preworkout on certain workout days, otherwise u become reliant on it, and after not having it you will get tired too easily. So for example if you go 5 days a week, you should only take twice. Make sure u study the effects on your body, cus u don’t wanna fuck yourself over in the long run.

There is so many factors to why is happening, maybe you are not resting properly, cut your caffeine like 6 hours before bed, doesn't matter if you can sleep normal, there is a big difference betwen you sleep and the quality of your sleep. Maybe you are over training, not taking enough off-days. Remember, you can't always train hard, take a week training with 40% of your PR. There is a lot of factors, these are just the most commons

maybe try and see the bigger picture? I dont know your lifestyle, but have you been sleeping well the past months? how about your diet? have you been eating well the last few weeks? maybe you had a night of good sleep and a big breakfast, but that doesnt compensate all the stress accumulated on the past weeks. maybe your body has been carring all that stress all this time, but only now it is showing. try to adress everything "behind the scenes" and see what happpens. cheers! good luck mate.
