What some of us don’t realize is that in order to get the best results, you must really look at what you eat pre and post workout. I’ve got some really good recipe ideas for that here .

10 Ways to Boost Energy

I wake up at 5am everyday to go workout. You would think that by 1-2pm I would be crashing. There are some days that I am a bit more tired than others, but for the most part I am pretty energized.
