"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Hello All,

I do a full body workout every 4-7 days depending on week/work....

I typically do 6-10 exercises starting with Leg Press,chin... and going from there. Sometimes will start with Leg curl, leg ext, press...

I find still to this day I am almost sick after 3-4 movements. I see my eyes showing fatigue and really needing to concentrate to not just stop. Also, concentration on the exercise does get more difficult due to the fatique factors. Just feeling wipped out - it's difficult to finish off.

I find after my workouts I may need to lay down about 5 minutes preceding the workout and let the blood get back to my head. I am healthy 44 years old, 5'11" and weigh 212lbs.

If I don't push to failure (which is extremely rare) it's easy to finish. It's the failure that really works the body to the limits. Also, the leg ext. workout isn't as intense as is when starting with leg press - for obvious reasons though I don't believe as effective either - for obvious reasons.

Anyone else get this way??

Thanks,

Ron

Ditto @ 43yrs Coomo !

I train leg press last and it is a real sickener ... likewise Im numb with fatigue ( & nausea) for a good hour post workout. But to date the results have been worth it , or I would have to be stupid to persist otherwise LOL.

44 years old. Nauseous and winded right after. Hands have the tremors a little bit and involuntary muscle twitches. Breathing is elevated for awhile. 20 minutes later I feel great. I love it!

Good to hear it's the same with others. I do legs first probably because I can perform them the best and I am normally a stickly with largest to smallest muscle grouping.

Thanks,

53. I have to take a 30 minute nap after the workout, and get a great, typically 9-hour sleep that night, too.

Age 53. Todays workout was SSTF (except DL) at 3/3 or so of the following:

Deadlift
Leg Press
Super Pullover
Overhead on Dbl Shoulder
Arm Cross on Dbl chest
Decline on Dbl Chest
Rowing Torso
Biceps Curls

Took about 14 or 15 minutes. Maybe less, as there was no rest. Felt okay afterward, just winded, but could not get out of a chair without using hands four hours later. Got a huge urge to sleep about 2 hours after the workout and that's pretty typical.

It's interesting to hear so many people feeling ill after their workouts? Even when I did do squats or legs presses with the rest of my workout and I always went to failure I never felt bad after a workout. In fact I have always felt invigorated.

The only time I remember feeling bad was when I was in bad shape over all from not exercising consistantly and then trying too much during a given workout or rushing to fast between sets.I would suggest if you consistantly feel so bad after a workout so that you might want to throw up or feel faint that you are doing to much. I don't buy into the notion that you have to push it till you puke theory.

That's just going overboard and most likely will take a heck of a long time to recover from if you really can recover from it in a reasonable time.

At the end of a training cycle (last 2 weeks), I perform 5 exercises in HIT fashion.
Bench Press 1x2-4, immediately to
Chest Press 1x10-15 1 minute rest
LatPulls 2-4, immediately to drop set
10-12, 1 minute rest
Deadlifts 10-15
At the end of the workout I feel lightheaded and a little nauseated for about 15 minutes. Then afterwards, I feel energized and light on my feet. I am 50yrs old and getting ready for a surgical procedure. After this, I expect to make some really big progress using this along with my powerbuilding routine.

I tend to agree with the last few posts... The only time I feel ill after a workout is when I push to the limit in the absence of proper conditioning.

I usually feel invigorated about 15-30 minutes afterwards, and then sleep like a log that night.

By the way, I am not winding you up or anything here, but I feel fantastic, busting with energy, and have a buzz all the time, with that feeling of well being if you know what I mean, and its 2.35 here, and will watch Sherlock Holmes on DVD for another hour.

Not sure, some of your train the way you do if you feel that way.

I believe you feel fine because you have long time gaps between sets.

Wayne , I too buzz with anticipation prior to working out and a buzz of self accomplishment post workout. But the very fact that I have made alteration to my physiological equilibrium ( enough to create an adaptive response ) by way of exceeding my previous capabilities means that I physically feel differently post workout ie; glycogen depletion , lactate build up , hormonal rush , and a degree of cardiorespiratory fatigue all make us feel differently after working out ( or should if one has trained with a degree of intensity )

Best wishes , T.

i feel this way every workout. this is how you are supposed to feel. h.i.t. is pushing yourself beyond your physical limits to cause an adaptive change. anything short of this will produce nothing in terms of results. it takes tremendous effort and focus to cause the body to change. you are working out correctly and sickness is unfortunately part of the formula. luckily it only lasts 20 mins or so. alot of the time i lay down and my body literally shuts down and i go into a deep sleep for 30min and then i awake and eat. this is h.i.t.. this is the best way to build a strong body. you are on the perfect track.. keep it up you will reap the rewards of your efforts.

Hi cgm,

I am still doing Johns program on shoulders, but just needed a change, thus for the last year have been doing a few different programs one would be like this; 8 x 8 with 15 seconds between sets, rest 1 minute, 2 x 30 with 15 minutes between sets.

So why do some of you train the way you do if it makes you feel burnt out ??? As you should be feeling just the opposite.
