They started last week during a set of cleans. It was just a throbbing extremely painful headache. It didn’t make me puke or anything, but I had to stop working out. Monday I did heavy squats, then on to some OH presses and on my third set it came back. I took a rest, drank a powerade from the vending machine, and had another go at it. Headache came back, and I had to call it a day. Today I was doing 5/10/15 pullup/pushup/bw squat x 20 rounds for time, and after round 4 the headache came back. I didn’t even break a sweat or even start breathing hard.
I’ve searched all over google for this and found some posts on this site. I was wondering if anybody has experienced this. How long did you take off? Is there anything I can do speed up the recovery process?
I’m going to chill out until Friday, which I’m not happy about. I’ll probably do a lighter session Friday night and see how I feel. I’ve heard some people say it took a couple weeks to recover. I probably caused it by poor breathing on cleans or OH presses, I really don’t know and the squats could also have caused it.
If anybody has experienced this or has any input, I would really appreciate it.
