Work out when tired?

I'm working out for strength and size, mostly. I'm just wondering if it is better to put off a work out for a day, or push through the fatigue as best you can.
I got up early today, I think it just caught up with me. I was just getting ready for pullups.

Strength and size can be two different different workouts . Best practice is to set a time today when you feel pretty good and can rest afterwards. Read up on the subject and get in a routine I personally like to do four strength workouts a week and at least three cardio. I split up body parts. For example I work chest and back together. Legs the next day then I work on arms. My 4th strength workout will be shoulders and some whole body exercises. On a day when I do sprints I will not do heavy lifting.

I have been using being tired for a while as an excuse to not work out.

Same here, I've been doing that for years. It's habit forming.

That depends on what type, and level, of tired.

Physically exhausted, falling down tired? I'd not risk an injury.

Tired from the day at work or a long commute? Work out.

The better you get to know your body the more able you will be to know when to say "not today". I've had those days.

I would at least go to the gym and start working out. Most of the time, once I warm up, I get some energy.

I'm off to do some sprints and then work out.

Now that I agree with. When tired you are more prone to injury.
