So your working hard, trying to lose fat and get fit and every time you push a little harder, you feel sick. How can you succeed if every workout makes you nauseous? I always say, " A successful fitness plan must follow the Progressive Overload Principe." Taught in the NASN Personal Training Course, this principle simply means you have to continually push it!
But exercise makes me feel sick!
The problem is this: you have exercise intolerance. Defined as a condition where you are unable to do physical exercise at the level or for the duration that would be expected of someone in his or her general physical condition, or experiences unusually severe post-exercise pain, fatigue, or other negative effects. Exercise intolerance is not a disease or syndrome in and of itself, but a symptom.
One theory behind exercise induced nauseousness is an inability of the body to tolerate the lactic acid in the muscle as a result of anaerobic exercise. Lactic acid can cause nausea and fatigue if at high enough levels in the blood.
A simple solution to this is to stay well hydrated and also consume a product that contains potassium pyruvate, a nutrient known to help bind with lactic acid and increase the muscle cell's ability to derive energy aerobically.
My favorite product for this is scoop of Global Formula's BIOBURN ENDURE. It contains POTASSIUM PYRUVATE, L-CARNITINE, COQ10, ALPHA LIPOIC ACID, CITRULINE MALATE. Take it 30-40 minutes before exercise for best results.
I hope they make fruit punch flavor, but raspberry will get the job done with a tart taste. Where is the best place to get this? Nutrimart. 888-600-9777

Before Jack LaLane died, I had a chance to talk with him in a radio interview. I asked him this question: "What do you think is harder to do: exercise correctly or eat right? You'll never guess what he said. In another post, I'll share a link to that interview. Our opinions differ in this question. Exercising 5 days a week is great for fitness, you only have to make the right decision 5 times in a whole week. Eating correctly is a little more challenging for me because I eat 5 or 6 times a day. That's 30+ correct decisions per week. Not only do I have to choose to stop and eat at the right time, I also have to choose to eat the right foods in the correct portions. That's a lot more decision making!
That is why you need to plan what your eating for the day. You need to know what you're going to eat before its time to eat. And it's gotta have the right nutrients in the right portions for the right amount of calories. That way each meal, your keeping your metabolism up while fat burning and muscle building at the same time. That is why I created the Cafe Club. We need to have a place to go that knows who we are, what we like, what we need and most of all…. What we should eat! Want to know what you should eat? Become a member:

Kaiser has this short 30 second commercial and it really touches on something important for maintaining fitness. Click play above if you haven't already. Personal Fitness is such an individual thing. There are literally millions of ways to get fit. A variety of workouts, foods and supplements will get the job done in different combinations. The key is to find what works for you. Its "gotta work!" What you do has to be effective. The problem is a lot of the time, the most direct route to fitness is not something you want to do. If you don't like it, you won't keep doing it. If it doesn't become a habit, you just started down the road to yo-yo fitness. Getting fit, then not, then fit again is hard on the body.
The trick is to find something that you like enough to keep doing that also works. There are a lot of choices out there. Some choices are awesome at first, then, not so much. It's like eating your favorite meal. Even though it's your favorite, after eating it seven days in a row, it's not your first choice on the eighth day. That is why it is good to have several different favorite meals and workout routines, even different supplements you cycle through.
I know I can eat the same thing until I wear it out. Then I don't want it no matter how good it is for me.
Lesson 1: Eat with enough variety that you don't wear out meals and foods.
I'm guilty of doing the same workout over and over because I initially saw great results. Even though I hit a solid plateau, I stuck with it, because I liked i, and I always thought back to the original results. Sometimes I'd keep progressing in a workout, pushing harder and harder until I was on the edge of injury or just plain over-trained.
Lesson 2: Change your workout often enough that you prevent plateaus and injuries.
Taking those super-duper supplements can really give you an ergogenic edge or at least a placebo effect. Especially with pre workout supplements that contain stimulants. Your body can build a tolerance to caffiene and other nutrients, just like it can to alcohol.
Lesson 3: When it comes to supplements, more is not always better. Remember to take a break from your supplement regime and switch things up.
Well, there is some food-for-thought, pun intended and three lessons. Of course 3. This is TriSystem for crying out loud. It's gotta be 3. I hope your thinking about your fitness, working smarter, not harder.
