    Is it normal to want to puke while training? Yesterday, I trained and did all sorts of stuff : squats, push-ups, jumps, etc in a short time. Then I started to feel sick so I had to stop for at least 10 minutes. If I continued, I think I was going to puke. I can't continue to train at all when I feel like this. Is it normal?

    I threw up once after lifting. But it was a combination of eating too close to it and being sick.

    Don't train so hard that you get sick.

    Depending on how heavy you're training, make sure you're getting rest between anything you're doing. If you're going for the cardio aspects of things and a certain exercise makes you feel like you are going to puke, you may want to avoid that for now and add it later.

    Feeling like you're going to puke is either a sign that you're pushing your body very hard with something it isn't used to or that you ate too soon before doing a workout.

    If you're doing everything bodyweight and going for cardio, that's not my thing so there might be more advice there. When I do those exercises they're either timed intervals (tabata) or heavy sets. Someone else might have more information for you with that type of training and the vomit feeling.

    Depends if you jump into hard stuff that your bodys not used to (tabata being a prime example) or is you have eaten too late to training and the blood is all pooling in your stomach whilst your trying to put blood into the muscles. In such cases of the latter though, you do puke

    For a while, when I started working out especially, I'd get extremely sick while I worked out. I mean, I even had to leave the gym a few times. I have read it's fairly normal especially if you work out really hard, but I dunno. I still get the shit sometimes who knows.

    God, everyone quit being dicks.

    This is not normal, nor is it good for your training. It will weaken you.

    I know for me when I get to that point it's a fuel problem. I do triathlons and I occassionally get very sick when training. I can always trace is back to fuel. Maybe take a look at your diet and make sure you are getting enough calories or energy or whatever you guys do :) I take some of those gel packs along on my long sessions and the moment I start to feel sick I open it up. Seems to do the trick. Good luck.

    Are you drinking any type of "energy" drinks before your training? The only time I puked after a hard session, I drank one of those AB energy drinks and I have never had one since. I think the combination of a hard session and the crap in that drink made me ill. If not, you should consider giving yourself a little more rest in between sets and make sure you are getting enough water.

    Hydration is also something to be aware of. Be sure your drinking enough water.

    very normal, puke and jump right back into training, but stay hydrated. youll be amazed how much stamina youll have if you train till you puke, i wrestled and played football in high schoo, and in both sports they run you till you puke. on the mat they would have a huge trash can called the puke bucket.
    i kinda like that feeling of almost or puking from training. i know ill thank myself once i step on the mat

    For some reason I really hate that feeling and can't stand it. I cannot continue to train when I feel like puking. One of the main reason is that I cannot stand being seen in public when I feel like this. I want to hide somewhere.
