    Has this happened to anyone else here? When I first started training quite often I would get nauseous towards the end and 2 or 3 times I even threw up. It was all water/flem and after I threw up I would feel fine. This happened for maybe a month and I thought I was over it- however last night we had a really rough training session and toward the end I was feeling it a little bit (not quite as bad as previously). Anyone else experience this?

    I never have, but the first class I was in had a bunch of really big, out of shape guys. A couple of them got sick at various times. It was usually on the days that they pissed our instructor off by acting like lazy jackasses and he would push them really hard.

    I've been nauseous before from exercising or working out really hard, though. Especially if it's hot and/or humid.

    I've been really close to throwing up several times. It went a way after the first month of grappling though.

    Our coaches son was in OKC for a training seminar for his job, he went over to USA stars, Pat Burris's club. Coach Burris is a 2 time Olimpyan, 72 and 76. Before he would let him in his Black belt class, he had to randori with his brown belts, he was ranked Nidan at the time. So he came back the next night, there was a large garbage can in the middle of the mat, evry one warmed up on there own and when coach Burris steped on the mat, called Hajime, after two hours of hard randori he found out what the can was for, it was full of puke.

    As soon as I learned to relax (about the first month) then its never been as nauseating as something like windsprints.
    It may be what you ate that day, like if you just have coffee or something your body isn't used to before practice then I could see it happening to anyone.

    exertion, especially if you are just starting. I chucked once during my first session with a personal trainer at a gym. He was pushing me to find my limit.

    My son has chucked at Hapkido from eating too close to training. I have seen people get pukey from having not eaten all day before training.

    Most people don't hurl...it's an indication you aren't paying enough attention to what your body is telling you. We used to have a guy hurl regularly, but after a couple of months he stopped (slow learner).

    Rule of thumb: Only take 1 sip from the water bottle...anything more then that will surely upset your stomach. Say someone does knee on belly....and you drank too much...you get the point...but it only happens to some people :)

    Also depends on how hard you're training and what the temperature is like etcetc

    it sounds like "nitrogen depletion" which is very common and is usually caused by poor nutrition coupled with over training. It happens when you don't eat enough carbs about 2 hours before training and then train to the point of depleting your ATP(reserve energy stores in your muscle). Carbs = energy. simple carbs = fast burning energy; complex carbs = slow burning energy. It's best to eat complex carbs 2 hours before training and simple carbs immediately after training. If you don't have the carbs prior then you're body is forced to use ATP (stored energy). Once that's depleted you basically are running on fumes and will get nauseas and light headed.

    The moral of the story is to make sure you eat properly so your body doesn't have to go into your reserve energy stores. This is the very reason why weightlifters use Creatine supplements (creatine restores ATP) and fruit or protein/carb combo immediately after workouts.
