Never. I drink water but the most after I finish.

I always get nauseous when I strength train. I think it's because I push too hard and don't rest long enough between sets.

Thank you SO much for the replies. I mainly drink during the workout to wet my throat from breathing heavy but having this happen definitely will make more alert of water intake! I have to also agree about over doing it. Crazy me just assumes since its a mainstream DVD that its always "right" how far to go/push. Thank you again!! emoticon emoticon

Hyponatremia - too much water in the system. Causes nausea/vomiting. Never happened to me from a workout. Had no time or inclination to drink so much during a workout.
From crash-dieting, yes. I could never feel full, so I'd drunk and drunk.

I'd had an aerobics teacher who liked to be all boot camp, but despite that, had provided only a 3 minute cool-down at the end of class. I had thrown up, but just a little.

The only time I've ever FELT like I was going to vomit after a workout (never actually did) was when I drank too much water during my workout. I'm betting that's it.

I remember that happening to me from aerobics classes .. although I do have stomach problems (GERD) ... it may well be an inadequate length cool-down at the end of class that causes this.

I'd agree that maybe you've just focused too extremely on your core. Also, since it has only happened once, it could be that maybe your tummy was just a lil upset for some random reason to begin with and then that in combination with the exertion was too much for you. I'd slow down a little, and remember to give each muscle group a day of rest before you strength train it again. So maybe do some cardio or strength train a different muscle group every other day. And don't forget those rest days, your body needs them.
If it reoccurs, get a professional opinion.
Congrats on the 30 pounds ;-)

Might be worth seeing a doctor but a dew points;'

1] Focusing too much on abs.... do some core work with weights
2] I have seen vomiting before in people who do sports. Be warned... when I saw it, it was about over exertion and... it gets to be a very bad "habit" Once you start doing it, rather horribly it can keep happening. Vomiting is not good ( unless you've been poisoned). Stomach acids play hell with your teeth and you disturb all sorts of electrolytic balances in your body if it happens too often

I always eat a small apple or banana because I find it's easier to have a little something in my stomach. Good luck!

I agree that you could have over exerted yourself, or maybe you drank a little too much water during the workout, given that it was focused on your core area. It might help to decrease the intensity a little, drink more water before and after instead of during the workout, or trying the workout at a different time of day. If you find this problem becomes a pattern no matter what you do, then that's something to discuss with your doctor.

Hope that helps,

You may have over-exterted yourself. It sounds like it to me. I'm not a trainer though.

I work out in the morning, I get up - have a protein bar/eggs/etc, get the kids off to school and then work out. I have found I can't work out on a completely empty stomach or a full one. The last 6 months having something small 30-60 minutes prior to my workout has been a happy go-to.

Well I started hip hop abs. Monday I did the start up and Ab Sculpt. Yesterday I did the 30 minute cardio ab. Today I decided to tackle the 45 full body burn. I was dripping sweat when I was done and exhausted (in a good way!) About 15 minutes after I finished I got nauseous and vomited up all the water I drank during the workout. Did I over exert myself? I've never had this happen no matter what I ate before/after.
