The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    When I'm bulking, I pretty regularly puke while training legs- especially from deads, and squats to a lesser degree (what other leg training is there? )

    I pretty much see it as par for the course.

    Any other symptoms besides your "heart beating extremely fast"?

    What are you eating before you work out?

    yea i do pretty intense leg workouts, and kinda feel like a bad ass puking, lol

    but i hate losing all i have consumed =/.........if i im not mistaken, did'nt arnold point out throwing up due to extreme intensity?


    Sensei:, someother symptoms, are feeling really light headed, and just pooped, then the throwing up feeling crawls up on me.

    today before i hit the gym up i ate (i had a sweet tooth thismorning :P) 2 french toast (homemade)..bowl of oatmeal, and a few sausage links.


    and like i said, after i throw up, all is well, and i start pushing the weights around again, but then my breath smells like straight ****

    I have a question about puking. I myself have never puked from a workout, but when you guys do, do you subtract those calories from FitDay and have to compensate for them? lol

    LOL, great stuff. I'd assume you would have too, unless you want to scoop it back up and drink it.

    If you are puking, I'd say back off the intensity a bit. At some point pushing yourself extremely hard becomes detrimental to your progress. Trying to kill yourself during a workout rarely brings about results that are better than those achieved through normal means.

    Uh... I think we found your problem. How long did you wait before you hit up the gym after eating all this? I honestly would wait at least 1.5-2 hours before going to the gym after eating that stuff. Naturally the more you eat and harder you lift, the longer you would have to wait.

    Yeah and if you're puking during workout... if you're like me that means you're pretty exhausted both by the workout and throwing up. For me any lifting after that puking sesh will be pretty pathetic lifts and keep me from seeing the gains I want (if I'm throwing up often). Plus the food obviously doesn't get to be used by your body.

    Puking sucks but I always feel fantastic afterwards.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    I've felt very nauseous during workouts several times. The worst was during a leg workout. For me, I have to eat and drink a little at a time, all day long, without getting too full, then I can work out. I seem to feel better on a semi-empty stomach when I lift. Then I eat like a S.O.B when I'm done. I figured this out after all kinds of experimenting with food and lifting. The sick feeling is bad enough to make me halfass the workout, and that sucks. So my point is, experiment with how much food and how long you wait before lifting, maybe take the intensity down a notch too. Good luck.

    I don't like going in there on a completely empty stomach, so I try to eat about an hour before I go in. If I feel like I have gone too long without eating and want to get some calories in but I am too close to a workout, I will drink a shake. That will usually stay down easier.

    Obviously leg day you are more likely to have problems with this since it is such a big muscle group that you are exhausting. Plus if it is as hot where you are at as where I am, that could be a factor also.

    It isn't a bad idea to push yourself so hard that you feel like puking on occassion, but to do this on a regular basis is counterproductive.

    I forgot, part of my problem is that the gym is always hot. It feels hot to me anyway.

    I've had a few nausating moments in the gym. I use a thing called gastrolyte now which helps to hydrate me when I'm working out at very high intensity and sweating like a pig.

    Don't feel sick at all now and I blasted my way to new highs both in PB lifts and intensity recently.

    Edit: Oh yeah and I take a two litre bottle of water instead of the old 750ml bottle I used to take. I drink the whole 2 litres by the end of my workout.

    Blood is used in the process of digesting food. If you have an intense leg workout while food is still being digested, the blood must leave your stomach to pump your legs. Without blood to digest your food, you would feel pretty sick to your stomach and at one point enough is too much. If you eat a big meal before going to the gym, I'd say 2-3 hours is safe, depending on your metabolism. If it's a light meal, snack or shake, maybe one hour.

    This sound like the most likely explanation to me, either way if you're puking on a regular basis during leg workouts you should change something up, thats not helping you progress.
