batton is off to a bad start
Default Fatigued easily

Have you ever had high levels of fatigue early in your workout? The past few weeks I have been doing a few exercises and then I get wiped out. What is a good way to over come this? How do you deal with it? I have been pushing through the workout but I just do not feel very productive.

Increase cardio. That will build your stamina.

Don't know your age or anything else so thats all I will recommend personally.

Good answer Rich. Conditioning is so important and often neglected.
I'd also look to make sure you are getting enough rest and food. Sometimes switching up your execrcises will help too, such as doing the smaller/simpler stuff first and saving the bigger [energy sucking] stuff for last.

Rich is spot on. You may have poor conditioning. You might want to increase your cardiopulmonary fitness through aerobic cardio. I say aerobic cardio because you get anaerobic work through lifting weights.

Aerobic cardio will cause an increase in stroke volume (the amount of blood pumped with each contraction), decrease resting heart rate, and this will cause the same cardiac output but the heart won't have to work as hard to supply your body at rest. Aerobic cardio is also muscle friendly and does not recruit a lot of catabolic hormones.

I'd go for a slow jog 2-4 times per week.

However it could be a lot of other factors:
1- How much sleep are you getting at night?
2- Are you under any significant stress?
3- How is your current diet? Been eating a lot of unhealthy foods?
4- Have you tried taking a week off or deloading?
5- Are you mentally "in the game" when you enter the gym?

Could be a variety of things.

All of the above posts have pretty much covered everything. Sometimes, it's also possible to get out of the starting gate too quickly, early on in a session, which leaves you feeling drained, when had it been paced a little slower, the workout would have gone smoothly; just something to consider.

That's why I enjoy doing the abbreviated routines that I do. 3 or 4 lifts worked really hard and done. When worked hard enough, 3 [big] lifts can wipe you out.
