usually this only happens on leg days, feel like im going to throw up at end of workout. is this because i havnt aten enough before workout? usually have breakfast, smoothie, then gym. or is this normal
with any major lift stressing your whole body like squats or deads many people react that way normally.

Concentrate on breathing. Make sure you are not holding your breath during heavy compound movements.
This happens to me too on leg days. Especially after straight leg dead lifts.Originally Posted by sLip

Man you just gotta eat something and your fine...and if your not...make a quick dash to the Bathroom and doit in the sink or something...I think I saw a guy throwing up his meal in the gym the other day...sorta sick...
I usually feel light headed but my friend says he feels like he will puke when he does them. Normally, he avoids squats.

I have never felt like that ever no matter how intense I go. either I am immune to it or my max intensity is not high enough.
I as well have never felt like that, but many many people have. It has to do with breathing, and the amount of oxygen your body needs/uses when doing big compound movements like the squat (or something like that, lol). Either way it's normal and it will happen, don't worry about it.

Don't eat right before you lift, is the only advice I can give... let your stomach settle for about 30min, then lift. If you're already doing this then you may just need to let your body build a tolerance for the type of strain it's being exposed to. Just don't give up squats or deads because of it, they're too important. Best thing to do is try to breath, focus on the weight, try to forget about your stomach, and take a nice rest after each set.
It means you achieved something that day.

dont wanna puke on someone bigger than you
^ Yeah, you'll achieve an ass whoopin' if ya do that!
I try not to eat more than something small unless it's more than an hour before lifting. If I eat a decent sized meal it messes with my breathing, I burp, and I sweat more than usual because my body is working on the food along with working out. I don't throw-up, but there's no way I could eat breakfast AND a shake. You gotta rethink the eating thing.
With Squats, I have to give my body a full hour after eating. Otherwise, I'll waste valuable gym time telling myself, "you're not going to throwup... you're not going to throwup... you're not going to throwup...".
Goals for 2005:
Add thickness to back, forearms, chest.
Or have a garbage bin nearby, so you don't have to make a mad dash to the bathroom.
The feeling of puking can be from working out too soon after eating and/or lack of breathing technique.
I usually get that feeling on leg days. Because I do squat presses, the ROM put quite a bit of pressure on my abs, thus pushing on the stomach. So I usually avoid having the pre-shake.
