ok.. almost 2 months in and cranked up the reps on Barbara significantly. Felt worse than ever afterwords. I wouldn't say its nausea per say but my head is pounding and i have to eat something afterwords. I typically bring a small baggie of those mini ritz PB&J crackers. They seem to do the trick. Still takes me 15 minutes to get out of the "i still could puke" zone.

Similar experiences anyone? Just making sure :-)

I say hurl. If you blow chunks and she comes back, she's yours. But if you spew and she bolts, then it was never meant to be.

once, I had the problem that you described: headache, neausea. i believe it was because I ate too much and too soon before the workout. since then I wait a minimum of 90 mins. after meals.

Check your breathing. A few of our clients were complaining about getting a headache. I closely observed each of them and noticed they were holding their breath intermittently during reps. They allowed the breathing to 'free flow', if you will, and the headaches went away.

I'm going to second the breathing. I have noticed a lot of people don't breathe right and have a harder time recovering. In the past when I have taught Spinning classes and the intensity was really hard, I really pushed people to concentrate on their breathing and that seemed to help a lot. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. It seems to make you breathe in more deeply, forcing the oxygen into the bottom of your lungs where there are more blood vessels and a higher concentration of alveoli-getting more oxygen supply to your body, causing a faster recovery rate. Probably breathing through your nose just causes you to focus more on breathing as well, not allowing you to forget and hold your breath.

Really focus on the breathing, and disregard the stupid immature suggestions.

On the subject of breathing, has anybody experimented with Lamaze breathing techniques to reduce the impact of pain during workouts?
