Workout Energy – Maximizing Your Energy Supply

I love working out and I make sure every part of my body gets exercised.

It was impossible at a time. I had the drive but I didn’t have the energy.

I always began with so much energy but I couldn’t complete the work out activity set out for each day.

I decided to carry out a research. I took some certified courses in fitness and nutrition and I know what to do now.

I am going to help you know what you can do to maximize your energy during workout.

The daily energy we need to function effectively is determined by the BMR or the Basal Metabolic Rate. BMR is the energy that the body uses to function when you are in a relaxed position.

The more activities we get involved in, the more energy we need. By working out daily, we need more calories because our bodies’ burn stored energy.

This is awesome for those who plan to lose weight since energy is stored in fat.

But if you don’t have enough fat or if you lose more energy faster than your body is turning fat into energy, it may be a challenge.

This leads to dizziness, general body weakness, extreme hunger, anxiety, blurred vision, nausea and headache. This happens because your blood sugar is low.

To have enough energy to sustain you throughout the day, you need to know that your body needs a particular amount of energy. You also have to work towards providing your body with this energy at the right time.

Muscle building exercises are intense and require more energy. Some of these intense exercises are cardio workouts; weight training and overall muscle building are energy sapping.

During or immediately after your muscle building workout, your body will need nutrients.

If there is none, the body begins to use the existing muscle tissues in the place of nutrients which are against your goal to build and sustain your muscles.

Understanding Your Body’s Energy System

To understand the body’s energy system, we need to explain some scientific terms but I promise to make this simple for you. See more on

Our bodies break down a substance called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) which is a high-energy molecule which contains 3 phosphates that are linked by energy bonds to Adenosine.

To release energy, 1 phosphate breaks away from ATP to become ADP which is Adenosine Diphosphate. To produce energy however, ADP is converted into ATP.

ATP is produced before ADP. ATP is produced in the body by 3 systems working at the same time. Each of the 3 systems relies on the kind of exercise you do, the span of the exercise and the intensity of the exercise.
