Hey everybody. I've been a lurker for a while and love the site. But I need help.
I recently started MMA training. The problem is that I have no stamina, endurance, cardio capability- my conditioning sucks!
I do workout and follow 10x3 and a hypertropy program, but never did any cardio.
The problem is that I've been to class three times and all three times I get muscle cramps on my lower back and I'm gasping for air. I know that I'm probably dehydrated and winded and I need better conditioning. I'm also still trying to work out.
But the real problem is that the next day I get really sick. I start to feel overheated, body aches, headache, sore throat, wheezing, and coughing (bronchitis style). The first two times (2 weeks ago Monday & Friday), I felt fine (other than the conditioning part) until Friday, when it hit me and I had to go to the doctor for what I thought was a virus/bronchitis. I took a week off and felt fine. I went back Monday and today I feel like shit. I can't breathe normally, I'm wheezing and coughing, and the same sytompoms from before.
I have an inhaler from the doctor, which seemed to help a bit. I'm going tomorrow but just thought if anyone else had any other experiences or thoughts.
I think I over exerted myself and my lungs and now they are trying to recover.
This might be a dumb post, but looking for insight and help.
Do you think that
