After finishing Barbara tonight, Pukie the Clown paid me a visit. First time in seven months of training. now i'm curious. I've tried to Google this question, without much success: can someone explain why training past one's normal level of endurance causes vomiting? thanks a bunch.

The answer- no one has any really good idea. Here's what we do know- above about 85% of VO2 max, your GI track is shut down in favor of blood heading elsewhere, and exercise-induced hypoglycemia can make you urpy, just like the conventional kind. It seems to have something to do with lactic acid loading, I've heard growth hormone release causing it bandied about, but not too much evidence on that count. It really hasn't been looked at very carefully, especially among weight trainers (endurance folks have gotten a touch of attention), and whatever the heck is we do. It just seems to have to do with a particular zones where digestion is apparently the very worst thing you can be doing ;-)

I've wondered that myself.

I've only met pukie when doing large amounts of heavy lifting; Squats / Deadlifts. I've never been able to work a metcon session to that point.

For me Barbara is the worst one for Pukie. Not sure why though.

The rest breaks are what make you puke. Take any workout with rounds, Helen is a good example, and add rest between the rounds. It will shock your system a whole lot more. To avoid it, I would recommend moving around while you rest in Barbara. Walk it off for the three minutes, or do a squat every so often to keep your HR at a moderate level.
