Natural proteins from meats and vegetables from carbs is what is needed as well plenty of water... in fact im looking at a poster right now at kickboxing that says 'Just 2% dehydration can cause 10% reduction in performance' if your working out in the morning porridge or if time eggs..i love poached 3 with salt n pepper

I'm new to this also but I found that some mornings its really hard to keep going if I'm not keeping hydrated and granola bars after an intense workout are amazing. Lol
Other than that just try to gradually build up so you don't tire yourself out too much or injure a body part, and it'll make it so much easier next time too.

I always try and have a strong coffee half an hour before a workout. It wakes you up and gives you a good boost. It seems to work for me anyway.

Black market labs adrenalyn cuts. Pro fight supplements creatine. L- carnitine for my pre workout. And then muscle pharm recon with 4 oz chicken breast or salmon and wild rice for my post workout. If I'm in a rush and can not eat whole food I'll drink a isopure pro mass or zero carb.

C4 pre workout 30 minutes before, sips of water throughout the workout, and 2 scoops whey protein with 20 Oz of water immediately after workout.

Another good trick to keep your energy up during a workout is to make sure you get a good heathy dose of endorphins by increasing your heart rate to around 160 Bpm for 30 sec to a minute during your workout by jumping on a cardio machine or just getting real intense for a bit. it hurts for a little while but it works I see ppl in the gym all the time that look miserable because if you go half way it is miserable but if you push your heart rate up for a little while your body will produce those endorphins to manage the pain I have it down to a science but you might have to adjust the bpm's or the interval to make it work
