Why do I want to puke?
What is the physiological reason behind wanting/needing to puke when working out to that point? I've had some pretty hard squat/deadlift days where I needed to take an extra minute to rest otherwise I could feel the puke knocking. I haven't yet...but wondered what it is that makes a person need to? The science behind it.
I remember puking after doing 5 or 6 sets of pushups back in high school, I think it happened because I exercised right after I ate lunch. You might not be waiting long enough after you eat before you work out. I think the minimum you should wait is 90 minutes, but 2 hours is better.
Sounds good at least lol. Probably the most scientific explanation I've heard so far as opposed to "youre hittin it hard brah"

I would love to hear the reason for this as well. When I was in my teens I used to weight train about 2 times a week and I would puke at the end of EVERY session in the bathroom. On days that I didnt puke I was on the borderline of doing so and I would feel sick for up to an hour afterwards.
Back then i didnt know anything. I used to use moderate weights and punch out about 15-20 reps on big compounds and would be doing a full body workout like this. This may be a factor as well that back then my cardio fitness was quite bad.
I used to get this for years until i started training through a proper 5 day program. My fitness went up a lot and after a few weeks it went away. I only get it now if i take a long break from training, when i go back to training for the first few days i want to or do actually puke. So i think it is somehow related to ir general fitness and ur conditioning to it.
Not too long ago i decided to deviate from my normal split for a few weeks and do a full upperbody/lower body split for a change. On the first day, after pushing heavy on the flat bench and then going heavy on bent over rows afterwards i was very close to puking. On my regular split those exercises havnt made me feel sick in a while but doing them one after another totally wrecked me so i think there may be a link to ur conditioning with a particular routine
