How Does Exercise Give Me Energy?

Sometimes, it does not really make sense, right? If you work out and burn up your energy, then you’d have more? And on those evenings when you get off work and can’t even walk to your car without nearly tipping over, aren’t you supposed to go home and sleep to save some of the little energy you have left?

Well, the body is pretty complex as I’m sure you know. And expending energy actually produces energy because your body adjusts to meet the challenges you put in front of it. And so while it is hard to lace up your sneakers when you feel tired, that might just be the solution to constant fatigue.

But let me be clear: What you eat has just as much of an effect on your energy level as your workout. If you’re using high-sugar foods to give you an immediate boost so you have the energy to exercise, guess what happens after? You expend that “tense energy”, and then you’re back at square one. This is why it is very important to pay close attention to the energy bars and protein shakes you eat or drink. Some of them contain more sugar than you know. What’s the alternative? Eat a fruit for slow-releasing energy as you exercise.

We do live in a quick-fix world, and people no longer want to put in the time. This is why coffee, sodas, and energy drinks are constantly flying off the supermarket shelves. But exercise does more than give you a quick fix. It gives you consistent energy to get through the whole day. Try going for a walk when you’re tired and see how you feel.

Cheers Eights & Weights!
