"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."

What causes nausea during HIT workouts?

I remember an article (I can't find it) about a young man who trained with Arthur. He said he threw up tomatoes after a workout but he hadn't eaten tomatoes in 3 days. Arthur had him drink a soda to recover.

I trained with El and got light headed he had me breath into a paper bag.

Thoughts?

I've heard it's the super high blood lactate levels that makes the stomach nauseous

I've also seen some articles which claim it results from a surge in HGH levels, which can happen after an intense exercise session. That seems somewhat plausible, since one side effect of supplemental HGH is nausea (according to google).

There are probably multiple causes, depending on what you did before the workout: insufficient hydration, too much hydration, too much undigested food in your stomach, electrolyte imbalances, excess blood lactate levels.

Too much volume and not letting your heart level subside between exercises. Problem solved.

Some trainees might actually be proud of this type of bodily harm, and it must be avoided ... not emblazened like a T-Zone badge of courage

Grant ... let 2020 be your year of progress

Yep; ischemia (reduced oxygen and nutrient supply to tissues and inadequate removal of metabolic wastes).

I've always thought that its caused from not warming up sufficiently, and moving too fast from one set or movement to another. Could also happen if a trainee is deconditioned or after a layoff.

Arthur Jones used to call this condition: "being drunk with too much oxygen." In other words, the effects of the high-intensity movements (usually several consecutive exercises) was more blood in the involved area that a trainee was accustomed to. Thus, the body becomes nauseated.

The quick cure was to rebreath your own carbon dioxide by exhaling into a paper bag and then inhaling from the same bag. Doing so would dissipate some of the too much oxygen.

Ellington,
Do you remember the article you wrote about the young man who "threw up tomatoes"? If so would you have a link to it? It's a great read.

Steve,

Try this: On my opening page, go down to Training Routines and Other Articles. Go to the bottom and click into Archives. On page 2, find the article: "Intensity, Form, and Tomatoes." The story will be toward the end of that material.

Enjoy.
