After yesterday's ST workout, I basically got sick. Nausea, dizziness. Got my blood pressure checked, slightly elevated but not to the point of causing this kind of sickness. This morning, I feel completely fine, except for sore muscles.
I never had this kind of experience with a 5x5 routine in which I was taking my time between sets since I was lifting quite heavy, e.g. squatting over 200lbs (92.5kgs).
Yesterdays workout consisted of squatting 2x8 for warm up, 3x8 at target weight (154lbs, 70kgs) and 2x8 drop sets...
So a 5x5@200lbs did nothing to me, but a 3x8@154lbs got me sick... Anyone had similar experience? Is it basically overexertion? It seems to me that it was overexertion.
