I posted this in the conditioning section as im mostly talking about conditioning.
How does everyone feel after a workout? Lifting and conditioning and their sport?? and also, how ‘should’ you feel??
I know people shouldnt be throwing up or shaky/fainting etc but what i mean is how does your body feel?
i have basically been trying to get alot leaner since summer with only dropping a small amount of weight. I have noticed that after a workout (more so when doing cardio,conditioning or playing football) i feel fat, heavier and bloated.
My stomach seems to distend and my love handles almost swell. I train better on an empty stomach or just have a protein shake before, i drink enough but not excessively during my workouts but i sweat ALOT!
As im struggling so much to lose fat im beginning to think that my workouts are detremental to my fat loss, as crazy as it sounds.
im currently on low carbs and only really having them after my workout (occassionally before), i have also been suffering from reactive hypoglycemia after workouts (hence another reason for the post workout carbs) which i sorta have under control.
is my body going into survival mode after training? should i feel leaner and lighter?? whats your experiences?
this is driving me insane, im struggling so bad to lose fat but it just aint shifting.
