    For the past few months when I've gone to workout my body starts to get very shaky if I do high intensity exercises like push ups and pull ups back to back or heavy exercises. For instance I feel my heart racing, a hole feels like it opens in the pit of my stomach, feel extremely dehydrated/dry mouth despite drinking enough water and consuming enough salt/potassium/magnesium. I was working out extremely hard for about four months following one of layne nortons plans 5 days a week. I went out of town for work and didnt have access to a gym but I continued to use dumbbells, body weights and pull up bars. I've been home since march but ever since these symptoms have just come up yet no matter how much I try to ease into a program they persist. I've tried to power through and ignore them but it just results in feeling like Im gonna puke. To physically identify the feeling it's like I drank 10 monsters on zero sleep in the midst of an anxiety attack.

    Ideas?

    Are you taking any supplements? A lot of them have plenty of caffeine in them and will make your heart race. Which is not a good thing of course.

    I personally get a lot of head rushes from dehydration. It sucks because every time I stand up from something I almost fall my ass. LOL

    Sounds like overtraining. Try easing it up a bit. If it still happens, see a doc.

    Def not over training as I stepped away and attempted to ease back into a routine... I've never had this problem, transitioning between phases has never had this impact.

    Ive tried working out with supplements and without when the symptoms hit but the end result is still the same feeling. I've tried talking with GPs.. theyve sent me for blood tests yet Im not deficient in anything. Supplements that I take consist of glutamine, whey, dextrose, vit c, arginine and creatine... so it should not be fatigue related as they all supposedly combat fatigue and symptoms of over train, but like I said the result is the same with or without them.

    Get a second opinion...and a third.

    As far as that goes, see a doc who specializes in sports medicine and injuries.

    urgh, more carbs prior to training and throughout your diet, your blood sugar is low after HIT and there arent enough carbs available to make up the balance.
