What if Exercise Makes you Nauseous?

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
