big problem
Since this deals with both grappling and muay thai, doesn't concern technique, I hope this goes here. My first bjj class after about 2/3 of the way through, I lost it and threw up. That was my first class ever and I was pretty much mortified and haven't been to another bjj class. Last week at my muay thai class, again 2/3 of the way through, I threw up again. The class was pretty intense and was mainly a two punch combo with a body kick, then sprint kicks. (I don't know the proper name, that's just what the instructor kept calling them). I was good while doing it, but we took a mjnute break and I was hit with nasuea. Before that class I had to take a month off due to school (im a senior in highschool). Any idea what could be causing this? Im really not wanting it to happy again. If I get some good answers I hope to fix it. I've heard that I could have been pushing myself too hard, or that my body wasn't conditioned. Or could be that since I eat "lunch" at school at 10:30, and then something more around 2:30 (class at five) that the food just hasn't settled?

Two main causes of this are ill conditioning and eating before you practice. Never eat less than two hours before practice no matter what shape you're in, you WILL throw up. I usually don't eat for about 3-4. The other part is just conditioning and there's no way to fix it except just keep going and eventually it'll stop once your body gets used to the pace. No reason to be afraid of it or ashamed because of it, it happens to everyone man. Best of luck!

I would definietly say conditioning. Just keep at it.

I for one have witnessed many people throwing up at training, and I don't reall ylook down on them or make fun of them in my head or anything. Everyone has to start somewhere. Just have fun and train hard. Eventually training will be normal to your body and it will adapt. :thumbsup:

The first time I threw up at the gym was about 4 months after I started.....Dont let it get to ya. Try to not eat too close to your work outs and keep at it

This, and even if you don't you will have less energy for your training, because it will pull a lot of blood out of the rest of your body (including your brain and your muscles) and redirect it to your digestive system.

And concerning the conditioning, learn were your limits are. It's ok to cross the limit from time to time to get to know were it is, but it's of no use to regularly go over it. When you know that you are close to the limit, just slow down. When you slow down, at least you will be able to continue to train, whereas when you go over the limit you will have to stop training for that session.

I've been doing muay thai since june and I ate about an hour before training a few times and never felt anything like that. Thanks for the advice
