Sorry I did not specify that this is more specific to my cardio workouts. I am just starting to do more strength training and can feel some fatique and obviously soreness after all. And yes, I typically exercise in the morning before work and such.
I feel more energized after my workout regardless of whether I've just completed cardio or weights. My muscles may be a little sore though I wouldn't say that they are fatigued. Of course I follow a specific eating pattern that works to feed my muscles.
I always feel tired but refreshed after a workout. Hmm, pretty confusing huh? It's like my muscles are sore and all but I feel good about myself because I know I did something good for my health and fitness.
You should feel good post-workout. Some people think you need to puke after a heavy squat session etc, this is wrong in my opinion. You are causing more damage than good, your body is telling you something! Your training can be intense without making you feel like crap after.

I feel the same. The endorphins are rushing post-workout and I feel like I could do more. I once tried the 20 rep squat program, I didn't feel energetic after 20 rep squats, I felt dizzy and slightly sick, then fell into a deep squat induced sleep.
