    When and how much are you eating? Calories and macros if possible...
    How much sleep do you get at night?
    How much have you grown in the last yr or so?
    Did you just recently start working out with weights?

    If you suspect sleep deprivation then it likely it is. Get a lot more sleep and see how it helps.

    How much water are you drinking? I find that when I get home from work and I'm pretty tired and I drink a ton of water (like 2-3 liters) that I perk right up. But, I guess you sort of have to be awake to run to the bathroom every 10 minutes to empty the bladder. Seriously though, dehydration can make you very tired. Drink more water.

    Do you eat anything relatively close to before your workout? Sometimes Eating a decent size meal before lifting helps me out. Just saying because I know that when I was in high school ( Oh so long ago) I wouldn't really eat much during the day and It would kill my lifts. Do you divide up your food intake evenly across your day?

    One of my friends used to actually put food in his locker and munch on it inbetween periods. I'm talking about things like a jar of peanut butter and a spoon. lol but he was pretty intense. My advice is just try and eat something decent before you lift it doesn't have to be a sit down meal just pack an extra sandwich or something to eat before you go into the gym. Or if your bulking pack two or three sandwiches lol. I guarantee you'll see improvement in your lifts.

    Eating a lot before you lift will likely make you tired, since your body starts devoting its resources to digesting the food you just ate. Do like Validus' friend and put peanut butter in your locker, and eat that between classes. And eat a lot of it!

    I agree it can make you tired but I'm also not saying eat a three course meal just something to fill that empty space in your stomach. But the peanut butter is a better idea i'll agree with that.

    Never makes me tired. Gives me a lot of energy before workouts.
