They have got up full of energy today
Why "They have got up full of energy today" is considered as bad English?
How can it be improved?
Thanks so much.
Re: They have got up full of energy today
Because it is bad English; its meaning is not clear.

If you just mean that 'they are full of energy today', say that.
