Me too, but do you yak?

This may sound counter-intuitive, but look @ your fluid intake, and consider increasing it (water, or coconut water). Not per-workout, just in general. Pounding fluids = good.


I get in at least 2lts during the workout

I've always heard throwing up from intense lifting means you're producing more growth hormone,supposedly makes you nauseus . Idk,could be bro science ;)


I think thats your body's response to too much lactic causing an acidic environment. Body likes to keep in its homeostasis and the acid throws it out of balance and your body responds by trying to get rid of it through chucking. Also in response to buffering the acid it produces bicarbonate but that too can get too much and vomming gets rid of it. Gota love leg training though. Respect for sticking through it and not quitting!


Its almost what it seems like, during a set i get to maybe 10 reps before the burn, then continue on thru it!

I love leg days, i almost challange myself to see how extreme i can take it! I like to make an example out of leg days

Sorry for the late response, been busy. Please note I said 'not per-workout'. Try increasing fluids the day before and into the morning of your legs workout. And maybe even cutting the 2lts some peri. This is just what has worked for me. I think adjusting your fluid intake around your leg workout could help. Those 2 liters aren't hydrating you during the moment, and are probably bloating you. Bloat = yak!

What Phedder said. Add a little more reps (15-20) and less weight on 1-2 exercises. This will help build new capillaries to help you eliminate the lactic acid. This isn`t a overnight process.

I have actually NEVER in my life puked from training. I think I have just conditioned myself from doing so much over the years (and overdoing it a lot of the time)...My muscles will give out before my cardiorespiratory system does....I will admit I have had a few dry heaves..though...LOL
