So today I had a major crash while working out and I wanted to see if anybody had thoughts on the cause. I recently started back and have been focusing on weight loss with some lean muscle growth so I'm doing mostly cardio while lifting a few times a week as well. I'm in a very limited gym so it's just body weight and dumbbell exercises.
Well, today I tried to mix in some cardio acceleration between my weight sets. Nothing too major...just stay moving for 60 seconds between sets with no rest. Well, after my 5th station I crashed hard. I had major dizziness, tingling, nausea....you name it. It sucked. I've had this before if I've lifted super heavy legs but not just doing cardio with some light lifting. Anybody experience this before themselves?
I've started to wonder if this is all fuel (or lack thereof) related. My daily diet routine normally follows this schedule:
7:00 - Banana and yogurt
10:00 - Granola bar
11:00 - Pre-workout supplement
11:30 - Workout
12:30 - Lunch
I would love if you guys had thoughts on if this is diet related, and if so, how much and when I should be eating before a workout. Thanks.
