I feel sick after I exercise

Whenever I exert myself or raise my level of intensity during Interval training I feel sick afterwards (flu-like). I have tried to figure out if this is a nutrition deficiency, a muscle fatigue issue or something else. Has anyone else had to deal with this and knows what itís caused from?

Re: I feel sick after I exercise

Well, there are a few possibilities.

1) Are you staying hydrated? It's very important to keep drinking. Either drink plain water, or half water half sports drink.

2) Are you warming up and cooling down properly? I know that if I sit down right after exercise, I feel AWFUL. You need to do a brisk walk to cool down slowly. Absolutely, don't stop moving until your heart rate drops below 100.

3) Could be something else. But 1 and 2 are very common, and the easiest to fix.

Re: I feel sick after I exercise

I have been dealing with this lately as well. I even got cold sweats with the nausea. It's only happening for me when I really push myself. I did some research though and it seems to me to be an electrolyte imbalance. I had a serving of Gatorade and felt a lot better. I found that if I spread my time out in between cardio and weight lifting it helps also. Good luck!
