Anyone else occassionally suffer from Hypotension after exercise?
And what can be done to prevent it?
I occassionally (rarely, thankfully) suffer from hypotension after a workout (blood pressure drop leading to tiredness, blurred vision, headache).
When I did my heavy workouts on weekends it was not much of an issue as I could go back to bed and sleep it off.
Now though, I’m a dad and my workouts have been relegated to lunch-time midweek.
Which has its benefits for sure, but I cannot afford the hypotension risk and have to sit in the office feeling dire for 3 hours.
Had my first post-lunchtime workout bout of hypotension yesterday. Not pleasant.
I’m putting it down to a challenging session, combined with tiredness (Baby waking at 5a.m), and possibly not having anything to eat pre-workout (except actual pre-workout and creatine).
Anyone have any suggestion how I can minimize the risk?
I understand that having a pre-workout banana migh negate most of the hypotension threat?
