New Workout Plan

Saturday, January 16, 2010

I did an hour of class yesterday: 500 Calorie Burn which is: 4min hand weights, 4min TRX (straps from the ceiling that you support your weight with for crunches, etc.), 4min Spin and 4min Bosu for an Hour.........

Yikes, what a workout it was but, again I think I pushed myself too hard because, I felt light-headed towards the end on the bike and felt like I was going to pass out and felt really cold.

How do you know it is too much before it's too late?

    Were you cold or did you get the chills? Chills are a symptom of heat exhaustion. So, make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids. I've heard somewhere, can't tell you where (therefore accuracy is sketchy) that you should drink 8 oz every 20 minutes. I do boot camp style workouts and circuit training about 4 hours a week and I still don't drink that much water, but my trainer does break us for water at the end of each circuit.

    Make sure you are drinking plenty of water as well. The coldness doesn't sound right-check with your doc and make sure this is the workout for you. It sounds like a really fun class!

    I agree with Janey. Even if it's just a call to your doctor to ask if it's normal. Sounds great that you're getting to the class! And it sounds like that class kicks butt!

    Josie's answer sounds reasonable but you may want to ask your family doc as well for safety purposes. Nice to hear from you!

    I always get the same light headedness after intense cardio if I haven't had carbs before & after. Usually a small tangerine or a few Clif Shotbloks (I use those for races) beforehand and then every 40 minutes is enough to stave off any blood sugar crashing.
