I'm a skinny guy trying to bulk up & have been training for 4 months.
At first, it was going fine until my muscle able to handle more weight.
On my 3rd or 4th set of deadlift & squat, I am so winded, out of breath, the heart is pumping too fast for my comfort, body felt light & cant feel my feet (same feeling if having low blood sugar or low blood pressure). No case of fainting yet as I immediately sit down (bracing myself, afraid I faint standing up).
On top of that, squat makes me want to puke too urghh.Question:
1) What is it that I am lacking? Body endurance? VO2 max? Or low glucose/carb in the system?
2) How to alleviate this or improve this?
3) In the case where my heart pumped too fast and out of breath, what should I do? Move around? sit down? My body instinctively wants to sit, but I am not sure if that is the right thing to do.
3) Is creatine easy on the stomach?

Those compound movements are definitely hard on your body, evenmore so if you do proper bracing your core, and holding your breath in like a can of unopened coke during the motion of deadlift/squats. But, it's very surprising when you've been training for 4 months
and you're still having such a major issue with this? I mean don't get me wrong, i'm still worn out like hell after 5x8 of deadlifts/squats - but it's within limit.
Looking on top of whatever physical issues you may have, are you using too heavy of a weight? What's your height/weight/bodyfat ratio? You kept on increasing the weight during that 4 months duration?
Are you squatting more then your bodyweight for reps? Try 80-90% bodyweight for reps - those should be easy for a typical male.
Are you sure you have the proper form down? Proper form makes yourself feel "solid" - it's really a hard feeling to describe but it just feels right - and it took me 6months+ of solid form practice to get all my compound forms spot-on for my body's aspect ratios.
Also - are you consistent in that 4 months of weightlifting? ie. at the bare minimum
, 3 type of compound lift(squat/bench/deadlift/ohp/row) every week for 16weeks without miss?
And no, i won't comment on your nutrition/other body related matters as it's not possible to comment on those with just words you've posted - i'm not a e-doctor.

i used to be 173cm and 52-54kg. damn skinny!!! one day i went to farmasi to buy that weigh gain, but the staff recommended me multi viitamins. she said need to tale evryday for at least 3 months. but 2 months later i started gaining weight it kept going up. i never go below 75kg. i used to be active. but these days im too busy and my weight now is between 78-82kg.
with your stomach condition, i wont recommend too much heavy lifting. i had stomach operations few years ago and since then i feel pain if i do any heavy lifting or cycling. try things to increase your stamina instead.
also bear in mind, it will take a very long time to see any difference.
Correct, to see any solid difference, at least 4-6 months of consistent effort must be done first! And if really things doesn't go your way - be very critical in evaluating your own effort or just get a personal trainer - as they will be accountable to evaluate every aspect towards hitting your goal (not those stupid p.trainers u see in gym who help ppl how to bench press only)
oh and.. 78-82 kg, that's fat for someone that short right? How's it feel to experience being skinny, and then fat, which is better?
