    I didn't know which forum to put this thread in, could go in any of the training forums, but i put it here cos this forum has the most threads :)

    How often do you throw up after training ?

    I did today, really pushed myself with a mate, firstly an 8K swift run, then a 90 minutes sparring/bagwork/pad work.

    What causes someone to throw up after training ?

    I think it's taxing your body, especially the nervous system to close to the limit.

    BTW, this was first thing in the morning, i hadn't eaten anything that day, so it wasn't due to training too close to a last meal.

    I've felt totally spent a few times but never to the point that I felt I was about to throw up. I've seen guys in better shape than me throw up though. It must have something to do with your ability to push yourself beyond your physical limits, at least for a brief time. I haven't pushed myself to that breaking point, I guess. In junior high school, I remember a couple guys that ran the fastest 1 mile time, beating everyone else in the gym class, and they threw up right after. Perhaps it is a nervous system reaction. Weird.

    I threw up one time after a workout with a personal trainer at a gym. We were doing sprints and a bunch of jumping excersizes. I puked. It sucked a lot.

    it will go away as your metabolic conditioning gets better.

    for now, avoid puking, as its intensely catabolic

    I don't. I push myself past my limit each night of training and I don't throw up.

    it doesn't always have to do with overtraining. some people, when the work out really hard, have their blood pressure drop. Its more common than you might think, and the bodies natural response is to puke, which raises the vlood pressure

    that being said, it can be avoided by staying hydrated.
    I've puked trying to force too much water into my body in a short time, then going back to training, so you need to be smart about it.

    I always thought it was some kind of sympathetic/parasympathetic reaction.

    Extreme stress causes that "fight or flight" adrenalin rush which is a sympathetic reaction.

    Maybe the body reacting to VERY extreme stress causes the blood pressure to drop causing the body to shut down....causing you to puke in some cases pass out?

    You're body's like "Shit this is too much....we need to slow down"

    I have no idea.....we need a doctor to answer this question.

    I will puke if I merely roll with only 2 guys 4 a total of 10 mins. that bad eh.. But of course, the higher belts can roll with 5 and feel like just exercising.

    I never puked from training, but often came close. When I start to feel sick, I stop. It happened often in my weighlifting training. It doesn't take long. About 30 minutes.

    I've thrown up once, I was very dehydrated, my tongue was very dry, and I had a nice triangle choke sunk in, but I couldn't finish it because the meatball marinara sandwich I ate at subway 3 hours earlier was about to burst out of my stomach onto the mat. but i did throw up in the bathroom.

    I've gagged often, never chucked up. Closest I got was when some fat guy in a stinky gi was sweating like Roger Ebert in a sauna just trying to pass my guard and he started dripping all over me and my face. Then he lay on top of me tired out and I got his disgusting stank chest hair dripping right into my eyes and around my mouth. I tapped out, stood up, drank half my water bottle, spat it all back out into the bin, poured the rest over my face and sat out until the feeling of sickness went away.

    The only times I've puked are when I've been a dumbass and gulped down too much water in the middle of practice/training. As long as I don't do that I can train as hard as is possible and not puke.
