NAUSEOUS AFTER A WORKOUT?

Young Dave Draper, bodybuilder.

Question — Why do I sometimes feel nauseous 15 minutes after a workout? There are several possible answers. Low blood sugar or hypoglycemia engenders discomfort, light headedness and a tingling muscular slump. This is common and dangerous yet can be quickly treated by rest and the restoration of blood sugar - the immediate ingestion of protein and high glycemic carbs.

The state of being deconditioned accounts for our early submission to exercise overload resulting in rapid breathing, muscular fatigue, and dizziness. An untuned system is incapable of attaining an optimum performance level and the accompanying endorphins that subdue pain and heighten well being. Yet, we've seen this happen to elite Olympians when they thrust themselves into the outer orbits of performance.

The real culprits here are the metabolic wastes that pack the system resulting in nasty low blood pH and toxin overload. The body, like any energy generating factory, produces prodigious amounts of toxins and must eliminate them entirely and efficiently — or fail.

For us the solutions are easy. Hydrate — drink oceans of water, thirsty or not. Dilute and wash away the junk. Accept a 15 minute post workout low as your system detoxifies. Your discomfort is an indicator of a killer workout.

Restore and refuel your body with first class protein and carbs. Then sit back and grow like an orchid amongst the briars.
