Nauseated After Exercise...

    I'm fairly new to working out regularly; I've been working out on a regular schedule for about four months now. Prior to the last four months I hadn't really excercised at all.

    My problem is that after I get done working out I always get sick to my stomach. Am I pushing myself too far or is it normal to be nauseated after excercise?

    My excercises are as follows:
    [MAX Reps on all excercises]

    Bench (80% MAX)
    Dead Lift (80% MAX)
    Pull-ups (MAX Reps)

    (Then I repeat through two more times)

    Standard Cruches (MAX Reps)
    Lower Abdominal Crunches (MAX Reps)
    Bridge with Stabalizer Ball (60 Seconds)

    (Repeat through those three two more times)

    Standing Military Presses (80% MAX)
    Dips (MAX Reps)
    Push Ups (Max Reps)

    (Repeat through those three two more times)

    I do this every other day.

    a couple of things might be happening to you

    first how fast are you going thru these exercises?
    it sounds pretty rigorous
    so your bloodflow is rushing from your body core (your stomach and intestinal line) to the outer muscles....producing GI upset
    first make sure that you're working out on an empty stomach ... no meals 2 hrs before your w/o if you need some pick up have a little sports juice
    second you might wanna rethink the speed of the workout
    if you're going very rapidly from one station to another your body has no chance to recover
    slow down a bit and see what happens

    you might also be experiencing Hypoglycemia. If you work very hard, very quickly, your blood sugar will drop precipitously, and you won't have let you body recover to create more blood sugar. Taking it a bit slower would help, also, eat something with some sort of carbs in it after working out (I always eat a nutrition bar after). that should bring your blood sugar back up, and if its a nutrition bar, will give you the right balance of nutrients for post-exercise.

    Little Buddy, do you shake, and sweat, as well as feel generally icky? If that's the case, you're going hypoglycemic. EAT!

    Are you breathing hard? If that's the case, your cardiac threshold isn't handling the load appropriately. Do interval training.

    You don't state how many sets you are doing in your information, but, there's nothing there that is excessive,especially if there's rest time. If you're only doing three sets of each exercise, as what you've written you indicate, the volume is not excessive, even at a neophyte level.

    I'd put your core (stomach) exercise last.

    You're terribly thin. I suspect you just are going hypo. You MIGHT be getting an oxygen deficit, but, the routine would not yeild itself to that unless you're going full out. Probably just need to eat more. Finally, since you've been inactive for an extended period, your cardiac threshold might be low.

    I'm sure you're s smart guy, and will experiment, and isolate the problem. Good luck.
