The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Need help: Feeling un-energized before/during workouts.

    I don't know what it is lately, I just been feeling tired and unenergized during workouts, especially after I hurt my arm. I only go 3 days a week now, but still feel fatigued mentally and physically. Can anyone give me any tips on getting extra energy for workouts?? I even drank redbull (low carb, stupid) before a workout and still felt like shyt in the gym.

    Any chance you're not eating enough; or training on an empty stomach? Have at least a protein shake or granola bar or something before training.

    Been training non-stop without a layoff for any length of time?
    Too many sets/exercises and doing the same routine for a long time?

    Get the arm healed, take a break if you have to & re-examine your routine/diet, but don't give up on the iron

    Eat more carbs an hour beforehand, then drink some caffeine 15 minutes before you lift. Mostly, eat more/better.

    what does your routine look like? you might be overtraining.

    other than that eat more and sleep more.
