My Ride: What else?
Did a foolish thing this morning

Tried to do a high intensity workout @ 5am without eating...ugh

Let's just say it ended 45mins later, with me sitting at the kitchen table trying to stay conscious while the entire room spun....

Probably one of the dumbest things I've done in 12yrs of exercising

Surely I can't be the only one who's ever done something foolish in the name of fitness?

share?

My Ride: 2003 325i
Had a going away workout with my buddy on Saturday before he leaves for the army.

Did our strength work and then had a little conditioning challenge.

We were about to start when he said, lets add an element of difficulty to this..... you have to pound a beer during each rest period (3 minutes).

Ended up getting a really good workout in (and getting mildly drunk in the process (5 beers in 30 minutes).

Not smart, but it was funny and a good way to send him off.

I know of a lot of times when people workout on an empty stomach. Isn't there always a good debate on this topic? Personally, cardio wise, I never can tell the difference.

lol wat

Stupid story: Taking **** like stacker 2 ad protein shakes on an empty stomach after a really intense workout. Thought I was going to have a heart attack. I actually was driving when the effects hit and I pulled over and ran into a grocery store and chugged a bottle of water. Proabably one of the scariest moments of my life. This was about 5 years ago. I think there's more regulations on even the non-FDA stuff. Correct me if I'm wrong.

keep in mind we're talking about going ~8hrs without food here....

I can sometimes get away with it, depending on what I'm doing and how much I ate the night before.....(plus I think my pre-workout drink made it worse.....my HR was thru da roof!)

Lots of people get away just fine working out after an overnight fast and actually prefer it that way... of course this all depends on a lot of things as well. Having said that though, I for one have experimented with it and HATE IT!

Yeah I've been working out in the mornings for the last 2yrs....mostly without eating (unless I wake up STARVING, which I wasn't this morning)

This has only happened to me twice.....the other time I was on Vicoden (root canal)

Hmmm for my diet its kind of like the warrior diet, one giant meal at the end of the day with just some small things during the day (protein shake, fruits). I lift right after class or in the morning (6 am) with cardio 30m after, don't really see a difference on an empty stomach, never had any incidents like yours *knock on wood*.

I guess it just depends on your routine and how long you've been doing it for?

Does this phenomena have a name?

This has happened to me twice after hard leg workouts. The first time it happend it was really scary - my eyes were open but I couldn't see anything, just blackness. Head was spinning, felt like I wanted to puke. I just sat on my ass and drank water until it subsided.

Is this from low blood sugar or lactic acid build up? And what happens if you let yourself pass out?

Do you die?

Have you ever thought about doing this diet the opposite way. Meaning a big meal for breakfast and small meals throughout the day?

lol @ what happens if you pass out? I dunno, but it did cross my mind a few times and I was trying hard not to think of it

I'm not sure if it has a name, but I know that in endurance sports there's a phenomenon known as bonking, which has happened to me a few times. You essentially go from being fine one moment, to hitting a wall the next.

But even that isn't this bad....you might get a little disoriented and even delirious, but it's mostly just falling flat on your face in terms of you energy level

Also, I've experienced the blackout feeling from doing squats before, but that usually subsides after 2 mins of just sitting down.
