How much pukie is too much pukie

I have a 16 year old client who is sick almost every time (70%) he is in to do a morning WOD. 7 A.M This same client has met pukie once/twice in all the evening WODS 6 P.M I am chalking it up to poor food the evening before and not enough time between morning snack and the WOD. He has been with us for about 3.5 months now. He pukes after the WODs, not during. Any thoughts?

Re: How much pukie is too much pukie

That's the thing Anthony. I have and do. We are just starting to ramp up his intensity and weight, after 3.5 months of going slow. He is reasonably strong 30 pull ups, multiple Muscle ups. It really does seem to be a morning issue. It is challenging as he sees the other teens that started with him kicking ***. I know a little about him as I have known him since he was young. His Dad is permissive, his sleep patterns erratic and his diet is crap. I guess I will have to slow him down again.

Cheers

Re: How much pukie is too much pukie

When I was on basic training I barfed after all but 2 morning PT sessions. (one of which was a yoga session after half the course was dropped due to PT injuries...) Yet I've only met pukie 3 times in the last couple years of CrossFitting.

I chaulked it up to doing PT on an empty stomach first thing in the morning when I was accustomed to doing the WOD in the evening after I had eaten supper.

Re: How much pukie is too much pukie

Hey Chris, I'm inclined to think this is what is happening with my teen. I'm guessing a sketchy dinner combines with a sketchy breakfast and hello pukie. I think I am going to insist on a meal consumption outline from him.

Thanks guys

Re: How much pukie is too much pukie

He hasn't had any concussions, has he? One of my friends and members neglected to tell me that he had a pretty bad concussion, so whenever he did anything with intensity, he would get a bit woozy (and puke).

Re: How much pukie is too much pukie

Hey Justin, not that I am aware of. We have all our people fill out a waiver and medical info page...nothing there. Never occurred to me that it could be concussion related. Good tip. I'll keep it in mind.

Thanks

Re: How much pukie is too much pukie

I only come close to puking when I have an empty stomach. I never work out with a full stomach or too quickly after eating but no food at all will bring on the nausea, lightheadedness quickly.
