Yawning While Training

Does anyone else Yawn after finishing sets? It makes me look like I’m not giving 100%, when I really am.

I am not even tired. But i can’t stop yawning during training. Does this happen with everyone else?

I definitely find myself yawning in the gym. But, I’ve also been questioning my intensity in the gym… Looking for something to rekindle my fire for lifting, I seem to have lost something lately.

animal, I find myself yawning at the gym even when I am working my ass off. Hell, I would yawn during wrestling practice when I was seriously working my ass off. Not sure why this happens but you aren’t alone on this one.

lmao, when I used to workout at 5:00 am I would occasionally fall asleep between sets. People would give me the dirtiest looks not so much because of the cat naps, but because I would use twice as much weight as them half asleep.

Yawning is just a reflex to get rid of excess carbon dioxide in your body, you could get a build up from it due to holding your breath through a few reps etc.
