Cokes are what southerners call your "pop." But jsut drink water and make sure you have enough carbs. Way back when, Id fall asleep on the bench between sets. Up your carbs and a tiny bit a of simple carbs before/during can help too.

You might not be eating enough. Over the summer, I'll try and look really good for the pool/beach and drop my calorie intake. It helps w/ fat loss but it doesn't help with energy. When school starts I try and throw another 1000 calories on to keep up w/ sports and working out. Try eating more carbs like V said.

Might not be something you can correct by yourself. Some people simply have higher baseline levels of energy than others. That can be corrected with drugs but in some cases the negatives outweigh the positives. Talk to your doctor, not a paintball forum.

I'd drink more water and get on a precise sleep cycle (and a precisely timed workout cycle along with it) before taking it there, mike.

All of these 3 three thing constantly put me in a drag if I don't follow through... like I usually don't...

do it for 3 weeks and get back to us...

Honestly...drinking more water is never a bad thing, but you should not to be on a precisely timed workout cycle in order to not want to pass out throughout the entire day, or even necessarily a precise sleep schedule either. I used to have this same problem and once I began regularly exercising, eating healthy, and quit smoking cigarettes the problem persisted. I'm now on Vyvanse to help with another issue (ADD) and since starting it I haven't had even the slightest issue with feeling tired. Granted, that's because I'm on what is essentially a low-dose amphetamine, and that brings up entirely new issues with lifting/exercising in general, but that's another thread.

Well, I'm speaking personally out of experience... During the school year I'm usually on a roughly good sleep schedule and when I would have weightlifting/conditioning class every other day at school, I got the best workouts

this isn't fully creditable for a number of reason I understand, but I did have more energy then ever before while working out/conditioning (which is what this is about)

I would still just at least suggest the extra water and regular sleep schedule, though. If he's sleeping scrubbishly, it could definitely be a factor..

Ironically, I'm breaking my sleep schedule by 30 minutes as we type, so I'm going to bed.

If you're getting 8-hours of sleep a night and still feel tired you ought to talk to a Dr.

Go to a good chiropractor, not one that adjusts just for pain but one who maintains your spine. Subluxations pinch off the nerves in your spine and slows down the signal from your brain to other parts of your body. Before I started getting adjustments I would get headaces 3-4 times a week (avg for adults should be 3-4 a year) now I rarley get headaces unless I have a hangover.
