    I have the exact same thing, inbetween sets i will seriously yawn like 1-3 times, it's weird, i think it is just a mental thing or something.

    some people attribute yawning as a way for your body to intake a lot of oxygen at once, but this hasn't been proven.

    the theory is that when you're tired, your breathing slows and in order to maintain the correct/normal amount of oxygen in your blood, you yawn..which as you know is like taking a huge breath..if it's true, then it would explain why you yawn at the gym..maybe your body is trying to deliver more oxygen to the depleted muscles?

    ya i was going to post that, but figured i'd check it out anyways...


    A long-standing hypothesis is that yawning is caused by an excess of carbon dioxide and lack of oxygen in the blood. The brain stem detects this and triggers the yawn reflex. The mouth stretches wide and the lungs inhale deeply, bringing oxygen into the lungs and hence to the bloodstream. It is almost certain however, that this hypothesis is not correct. One study documented that this effect does not exist ("Yawning" by Robert R. Provine, pages 532-539, American Scientist, November-December 2005, Vol 93, No. 6).

    It happens to me sometimes, I don't think a thing about it. I lift hard, I work hard, and when I rest - I yawn sometimes. Big deal.

    I would always get that when working out at this place.... http://www.accelerationmn.com/hockey.html

    It was weird, after one set on the skating treadmill I'd yawn like crazy, then the next time I'd be throwing up.

    When I've been working out hard sometimes my ears feel like they're plugged, but they're not, really. It's hard to describe. It's like I can't hear as well, but my ears don't need to "pop." It goes away pretty soon after I'm done. Anybody else get that?

    "The yawning reflex is thought to be a way the body increases its awareness of the environment as part of a self-defense mechanism. The release of endogenous opioids are thought to play a key role in triggering yawning in humans..."

    I'm almost positive that the above is correct. I used to yawn before track and cross country races while I was standing on the line waiting for the gun.
