(HealthDay News) -- When you're dragging through a long, tough workout, there are a few methods to help you muster the energy to finish.

The American Council on Exercise suggests:

  • Drink water to replenish lost sweat. Drink a cup per 15 minutes of exercise.
  • Consider sports drinks, which contain calories as well as minerals and vitamins, to replenish lost fluids and provide carbohydrates.
  • Use an energy gel, which contains carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins and is easy to digest. Or opt for an energy bar.
