Default Workout/fitness questions...

I figured after looking at the various threads in this subgroup that this heading might fit what people are looking for better, rather than going off on tangents in the existing ones that tend to go way off the original topic. Thought I'd make a catch all thread.

I am not saying I know anything about the topic. More to the point, I have more questions than answers. I think Eric, Tokyo, Boris, et. al. have quite a bit of knowledge here and maybe they will be kind enough to share.

Like for instance...

Why the hell do I always feel like I am going to puke after I finish a leg workout?! Seriously. Every time I finish a leg workout I get to the truck to go home and am near the edge of tossing up. Totally sucks when I am then trying to drink and keep down a protein shake! It goes away after about 15-30 mins, but really blows!

After every intense workout you should get like that.

Clearly you haven't worked legs very well so it's more obvious when you do legs. Nothing wrong with that. It's the same with me actually. Especially if I do max squats/deadlifts

LOL!

Ok, here's another question....The damn pad on the barbell for squats simply sucks. With the weight on the bar (obviously) when I go to lift it it f'ing HURTS my neck/back where it rests. I am fairly certain I am using proper form (had two different trainers tell me it was correct when I asked) so I don't think that's the issue.

Suggestions on what to do? "Suck it up" won't work. Discontinuing squats is obviously also not an option. Should I stop resting the bar there and do front squats? Are they as effective? Or is there a pad I can bring myself that would take care of the problem?

You try not using a pad? I've never heard of using a pad and have never had a problem.

I second csmutty. I never use a pad. The bar should be across your upper back. I nestle it in between my side and rear delt. It's odd at first, but once you get used to it, you'll like it much better. It spreads the weight across your whole back rather than putting all the pressure on that pad. Plus, you can balance the bar better.

And - I almost puke after every workout. Legs is the only workout I actually have lost the contents of my stomach.

Means you need to run more. I used to throw up on our Army PT 3-mile runs almost religiously. After I started running more to match our daily workout routine it started to help. Not eating anything or drinking a large amount of anything within 2 hours also helped quite a bit. If you're not hydrated within 2 hours of the beginning of your workout, you're not going to be any more hydrated drinking a shitton of water right before. If anything, you'll be more dehydrated than when you started after you throw up.

Lower the weight you're squatting. It happens for the first 4-5 workouts for me if I haven't squatted regularly in awhile. Think of it like calluses. If you don't use them, you lose them and then have to start all over again.

You shouldn't puke after every workout. It's terrible for you.

For the squats- google "low bar squatting". Instead of putting the bar on top of your traps, put it just under the spines of your scapulas (pointy parts at the top of your shoulder blades). It will effectively rest on your delts. Use a thumbless grip and try to press your elbows "up" to trap the bar under your hands. You will probably not be able to stand up "straight" with the bar on your back like this, you will need to lean forward very slightly. You will also need to bend more at the hips at the bottom of the movement to get as low as you would doing high bar.

I am naturally scrawny and could not comfortably do high bar squats when I started working out. This was a game charger for me.

Oh, and my post only applies when not using the pad. Im not sure you can low-bar squat with a pad.
