I'm shattered, feeling very sleepy but need to go to the gym. Will be spending approx an hour there before coming home, having a bath and going to bed. If I have a red bull will it wear off in time for bed or will I be wide awake all night?

I need something to perk me up enough for the gym!

Love an ice cold red bull. Treat yourself quick before the hoards starts telling you tales of strokes, heart attacks and gout

Depends on how much caffeine you have normally.

I'd be fine, but I drink coffee regularly.

I have friends who would not be able to sleep for at least 4 hours after a red bull.

Have a black coffee

I'd do it. I don't find caffeine affects me though other than making me wee lots.

Surely working hard at the gym will keep you awake?!

A black coffee?!

If anything I'd say you need the sugar more than the caffeine.

Wolfie unfortunately not , if I go when I'm this tired I end up half arsing it and not doing as much as I should. More energy before I get the helps me be more motivated to work harder.

Bugger! Could you eat something to give you a boost?

You don't need to go to the gym!

If you are that tired don't go to the gym, have an early night instead

QuiteLikely, I do to keep up with my workouts before my next PT session. I need to do shoulder workout and hamstring workout before Saturday, which means I NEED to go today and tomorrow.

I'm at the gym now resting between sets, having had a sugar free red bull and feeling pumped!

Momma that's really interesting! Will definitely be giving that a go! I don't actually like black coffee without any sugar, but can try and train myself to like it. Been thinking about buying pre-workout supplement stuff but coffee is cheaper and easier to get hold of!.

I like the idea that it increases fat loss, body fat % is being very stubborn and not shifting...
