I’d like some advice for something strange that I experienced today.
I got sick four days ago – not with a cold, but some odd virus (mild fever, few other symptoms). So, I ceased training. By Monday (yesterday), I was ‘better’. Instead of jumping straight into lifting again, I gave myself an extra day. Today, Tuesday, I joined my lifting partner for squats.
Everything seemed fine for the first few sets. But, by set 4:
- My heart rate shot up
- I felt very dizzy and light-headed
- I saw spots
So, I called the squat session (after 2 more stubborn sets). I then focused on easier isolation movements for the rest of the session and felt ‘fine’ as my heart rate settled.
Is there anyone here with a similar experience, or medical knowledge pertaining to the incident? It was just very weird, and I’d like to understand it better.
Thanks in advance.
