    How can you be depressed after exercising? I always feel great and filled with energy. I cannot even comprehend how you could feel bad after a nice bout of exercising.
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

    I'm always borderline hyperactive after exercise, my energy and mood levels go through the roof.

    Are you unhappy about your ability or work you do in an exercise routine? Maybe you're subconsciously setting too lofty of goals for yourself? I've never heard of anyone being depressed after exercise.

    What do you tend to eat before an exercise regime?

    Maybe throw in some fruit? Some simple sugars may help. I know for me at least that even if I'm in a hurry in the morning and don't have time for a proper breakfast I at least drink some orange juice and it makes a huge difference in my morning bike rides.

    I hope you figure out what it is, exercise shouldn't be something that sends you into depression.
