First you are doing a "st4rength" workout you are doing a mixed or combination workout alternating some weight moves with some cardio. The current research has had some very negative comments about this type of workout with regard to the effectiveness of either part.

Nausea can have multiple causative factors but I doubt that it is th3e workout per se. I suggest you try doing a plain strength workout one day and a cardio on the alternate day to see if splitting the two solves the problem.

Are you eating protein in the meal before your workout? I'd try upping the protein grams and making sure to eat no more than an hour before your workout, and see if that helps.

I tend to work out after work, and I usually eat a greek yogurt (loaded with protein) about an hour before my workout, and it makes it much easier to get through it. On the days I forget to bring yogurt or try eating something else with less protein in it, I'm usually dying halfway through.

You might be working too hard. I know in HS when we did "3 a day" practices some people would puke from the strenuous-ness of it all. Maybe slow down your reps or lighten your weights a tad. Also, make sure you are breathing and not holding your breath, and make sure you are hydrated and not too hot.
Maybe try eating 1/2 an apple or orange beforehand to make sure your blood sugar isn't too low?

I usually exercise mid-morning about an hour or two after breakfast. Sometimes its an hour after lunch.

What time of day do you exercise? Do you eat before?

I know most recommendations say to eat a while before exercising, but I find that it works best for me to exercise first thing in the morning, before putting anything in my stomach. Even if I just drink water, it sometimes upsets my stomach.

I've started feeling very nauseous after and even during strength training. I usually train for about 25 minutes sometimes 35. I alternate between using 16 & 10 lb hand-weights.

I usually follow along to the biggest loser boot-camp workout. I've been doing this workout for a year now and I'm putting more effort into it, and giving it my all, but I'm puzzled as to why I'm still feeling the nausea.

Any ideas?
