    Did you eat?

    I've practiced after giving blood and I can definatly say I was feeling pretty weak, but that was 2 hours after donating.

    Yeah I'd say its something besides 4 vials of blood, but I'm no doctor.

    Well it'll affect you for 2-3 days tops, but if you drink LOTS of liquids and try to get a little more iron in your diet than you usually do, it'll be replaced by then. Those vials look big, but you have no idea how much blood volume a person (let alone an athlete) actually has.

    Also, why would you train 3 times a day, 3 days a week? Why not 1-2 times a day, 6 days a week? That makes a LOT more sense.

    Just drink more water, etc. It shouldnt affect you that much.

    Ive trained and lifted the same day I gave blood and it never gave me much of a problem.

    All depends the person. I'm completely useless when I give blood.

    Anyway four vials is not really that much blood at all. If you donated blood and gave like a pint and some vials maybe, but just 4 vials i think its just you overtraining/not resting enough.

    There's no big issue here. If you feel lousy then just rest for a day and make sure you eat well and drink lots of water. This shouldn't be a big issue.

    Sounds like you need time off take one day and only train once and drink tons of water and get some sleep .
