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.
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?
My health background & other info:
Continue to do so until the current weigh/reps becomes easier. Rest longer in-between set. Take sweet like hacks while working on heavy compound. Have a proper pre-workout meal. Have enough sleep. Proper programming.
You're just having indigestion problem i think. Avoid spicy food, coffee, oily food, etc. Take apple cider vinegar everyday or supplement that aid digestion.
When you're out of breath. Sit down and rest. If you keep pushing then you might blackout. Know your limit. Listen to your body.
Yes creatine easy on most ppl. I have alot digestion issue like u. Heartburn, food poisoning, etc. but creatine okay for me.
