    I've never puked before. I've certainly felt like it, but never have.

    why do you puke? whats going on in the body that makes you do this? just curious.

    The only times I've felt like puking were when I was lying down on the bench after doing squats or something that recruited a bunch of muscle groups. I guess it's me getting overly hot with food in my stomach and then lying down. Other than that, I don't know.

    :dunno: why exactly, it's just how the body responds to exhaustion. The same thing can happen during heat exhaustion when the body cannot cool itself properly.

    I used to be able to say I never puked, then I joined the army, Ive had plenty of times running, not really any muscle failure, but running where I pushed so hard I puked, rarely long distance only a few times when I had a hang over or was sick, but doing like 60/120s or something high intensity ive legitimately puked. They say on a fitness test if you dont puke at the finish line running youre not going hard enough. I say its not really something to strive for but it really does show you your own limits.

    I've felt like throwing up a few times at the end of a workout. Never actually done it though. Would annoy the fuck out of me because I'd have to eat extra :o

    Leg days are the only days I feel sick. Usually leg presses and squats

    omg. It happened to me yesterday doing HIIT. I was like a mile from my house and my stomach just cramped up and I puked.

    I have a stomach of steel normally, so I just kinda stood there in shock. I chalked it up to it being freezing cold and the fact that I was hungry.

    There have been occasional times when I have felt sick during a workout. When I was NO-Xplode, not only did it mess up my stomach, but it also required taking it on an empty stomach as a pre-workout. So I went enter the gym hungry and not food in me. To make matters worse I was cutting at the time so I did some heavy cardio afterwards. Nearly every single workout session I felt very ill, but never actually threw up. I got off of NO, and a couple days later was fine.

    However, if I am doing squats or presses, I rarely eat within 1.5-2hours of the gym. Squats are the only exercise that can make me feel sick when I push myself hard.
