    I just ate lunch and then went to go workout. I felt terrible during my workout and couldn't finish it because I thought I was going to puke after each set. I wasn't doing any heavy lifting today: just shoulders and abs. Any thoughts on the reasoning for this? I didn't do anything that I normally don't do. This sucks what a waste of a workout haha.

    probably coming down with something , maybe a gastro which usually hits really fast and is gone within 48 hours.

    i was really tired friday night while working out, no energy, i had to lower reps etc.
    next day i started feeling congested ... : cold. :

    Makes no sense to me, I feel fine now and since I am still on campus (I work out school) I am probably going to go back to finish the workout

    You should let your food digest 20-30 mins before working out. If you eat a fatty meal - you'll want to wait a bit longer. I've had this happen before when I ate too soon before hitting the weights.

    If you are crunched for time try a quick 20g protein shake and a banana per workout they will digest quicker. Then eat something more substantial afterwards. Works for me at least.

    or as already stated you could be coming down with something.

    Don't eat immediately before a workout, wait like 45 minutes.

    I never eat before a work out. Drink a supplement before an intense work out then eat later. Digestion is a process and requires blood flow. You want most of your blood in your muscles during a work out. Not your organs.

    Abs workout after eating is not the best thing to do. Sometimes I feel like that when working out soon after eating anything a bit heavy.
