Why is it that ..?!

Question: Why is it that !.!.!?
after exercising with weights i feel very drowsy, am i doing something wrong!? de-hydrating or wot!?Www@Answer-Health@Com

Your brain runs on sugar, and needs oxygen to process this fuel!.

Being short of oxygen can make you feel drowsy, so diverting a lot of blood into your skeletal muscles might be causing the effect you've noticed!. If this is what's happening to you, then the effect will disappear as your muscles 'capillarise' (building new blood vessels to cope with the extra blood flow)!. Your blood volume will increase because there's more space for it, and less will need to be diverted when you exercise!.

If your workout is using up a lot of sugar, this might be making you 'hypo-glycaemic', which can also cause dizziness, confusion and drowsiness!. By GRADUALLY drinking an isotonic or 'replenishing' sports drink during the workout, you can keep your blood sugar high enough to still power your brain afterwards!.

Sipping water during the workout might help too, if the 'drowsiness' is really excess fatigue caused by dehydration!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

drink water during your weights session (1 to 2 litres) and then eat straight after, you want high protein to help your muslce repair and grow, and you want fast release carbs such as dextrose which will blunt cortisol release and replenish gylcogen, this should also boost your energy levels and get rid of that drowsynessWww@Answer-Health@Com

Your probably VERY dehydrated and not taking in enough calories!. EAT MORE!! You may feel like a pig, but you need to take in as many calories as you burn off (most of the time)!. Try taking h2O breaks in between reps!. That might help!. good luck!.Www@Answer-Health@Com
