Suddenly in the last 1-2 weeks I’ve gotten dizzy and light headed during my workout (about half way), and it has forced me to stop my workout prematurely due to balance issues. What really scares me, is that the dizziness doesn’t subside after exercise but persists for several hours afterward, and usually accompanied by nausea.
Things to note: I’ve just had the flu, these are my workouts about 1 week after recomencing. I also started using waxy maize starch as my carbohydrate in my PWS instead of maltodextrin. At the same time as starting this new supplement I’ve switched to a 3 session per week full body workout (one exercise per main muscle group, generally 3x10 setup)
. I’ve been weightlifting regularly for 2 years, body part splits mostly, but I have done this format of full body workout before, and dizziness has never been an issue for me, regardless of intensity. Fluids during workout are high, and I believe I’m following correct breathing techniques.
Thanks in advance.
