Water, water, and lots of water. I work out at night so I make sure I'm hydrated well enough during the day. I bring a water bottle with me wherever I go and fill it up everytime it becomes empty.
Nadiscover ko recently yung brand na Light Water - it's water with electrolytes. Yun ang tubig ko while working out and napansin ko mas may energy ako tumagal at hindi ako nanghihina masyado since then.
After work out I drink fresh buko juice. Better than water daw to replenish you because of all its nutrients.
^Sure you need water but you just need the right amount of it. Less than enough water will get you dehydrated and more than enough water can get you tired and feel bloated.
Enough amount of water means merely replacing the water your body loses to sweat and enough to keep you hydrated. Before work-out you don't need to stack your body with too much water, it is during work-out that you need to drink water but make sure it is just enough to keep you cool and your temperature level.
This is what I follow although not really strictly.
For regular work-outs, meaning not really humid or hot but enough activity to generate body heat and start sweating:
The goal is simply to replace the water you lost. Here's what you can do, weigh yourself before and after a work-out. If you weighed more than 2% less than you originally weighed then consider hydrating more the next time around because you lost too much water than what you need. Drinking a short glass of water every fifteen minutes is good except when you are under extreme heat.Code:Drink Water How Much? When? Before Exercise 8-16 oz At least 15 minutes before workout During Exercise 4-8 oz Every 15-20 minutes After Exercise 16-24 oz per lb lost As soon as possible
Be weary of tell-tale signs such as early exhaustion, cramps and when you start feeling lightheaded then you need water to fill you up.

just drink lots of water, you don't need to limit yourself with water, excess water will only be excreted thru urine, the more you urinate, that's a good sign that your kidney's are healthy, and did you know that you can assess your hydration according to color and amount of urine you expel? if its clear, transparent just like water, then you are well hydrated, if less hydrated it turns to yellowish and even more darker if not hydrated, severe dehydration has no urine output.

fitness trainer about my problem and he was able to figure the reasons as lack of consumption of water. He suggested me to take juices after 10 minutes after workout. During your work out you can take very small amount of water or any energy drink. Its also depends on your physical fitness.So i will suggest you to consult any expert fitness trainer and follow his suggestions and guidance for better results.

imo, you first assess your stress level, what makes you feel lazy is maybe because you lack sleep/rest, tired from work? not eating well? not warming up before exercise?
^sorry but how was that connected to the thread? I'm also trying to learn how to be more fit so I think it's a valid question.
I only drink water before, during, and after working out. I usually drink a glass every after three sets.
When I was volunteering for Task Force Ondoy, a student initiative in Ateneo, I was at the covered courts manning different stations. Making long story short, I was there the whole day for four straight days managing the donations and repacking them for release with a couple hundred Ateneans.
The school infirmary who has a separate booth outside the covered courts would remind the volunteers to try to drink every now and then, not only when we're thirsty. They cautioned us that we will tire easily if we wait for us to feel the thirst when after all we have a lot of water fountains within the court plus there are free beverages handed out to volunteers.
Anyway it was really a satisfying experience. Not only were we able to help, it was a good enjoyable 'work-out' and I made a few good friends. As I said in the other thread, just be creative and if opportunities present, grab them.
I take 1MR but it's not as important as water. For extra focus I mentally play my workoutlike a short movie in my head and by the timein the gym I'm psyched and focused with the workout
1MR is one of those good and effective preworkout drinks =)
It's awesome especially after 2 weeks of cycling off it. That intense jittery feeling you get as you visualize every muscle fiber working is almost orgasmic.
On a hot climate, a person working out could lose as much as 3 liters of water. I drink about 6-8 liters of cold water a day.
i'm not an expert, but usually an hour before i start my workout i drink 250ml mixed juice... then during the workout i drink lots of water... after the workout i drink 250ml mixed juice again...
try taking robust before workout... =)
