Thanks guys. I'll be looking to try a bunch of these suggestions and see what works best for me.

As to the pre workout and empty stomach, not this time. I learned my lesson!. I had eaten about an hour or so before the gym. One of my biggest issues is a set schedule. With my job, it's near to impossible. There are days I hit the gym right before work, right after, and middle of the day. Kinda sucks.

Ok, back on my computer...

I've never felt like puking, so don't know what that may be, but based on what I've read I'll take a guess.

Personally, I usually work out after coming home from work, so I'll have a Clif Bar and/or Apple/Banana (I should actually be working out right now - will go down stairs in a bit). I have a shake during/after and eat after.

So my guess is that when you're squatting you're creating a lot of intra-abdominal pressure. You may not even know you're doing it, but your entire core is contracting as hard as it can to protect your lumbar spine. Not only are you creating a ton of pressure there, but you're also raising your blood pressure through the roof. (EDIT: Forgot, you're also taxing your central nervous system!). All of that combined after a meal, I would imagine, wouldn't feel too good.

As I said earlier, it's extremely important that you back off on weight and go to a linear program concentrating on form and full range of motion (ROM). It'll start out feeling easy, but don't worry it'll progress quickly. Whatever program you choose, make sure it centers around the squat. It's the single most important lift in both power-lifting and bodybuilding. It works the most muscles, improves total body strength, releases the most testosterone and will set you up for everything else. Additionally, the program should be centered around free weights - NO SMITH MACHINES! Make sure the squat is the first exercise in your program as well.

Good luck.... let us know if changing when/how much you eat fixes your puking problem.

This...this is my hurdle right now. I am usually a 3-11 guy, unless there is overtime or a bump to days like tomorrow so now it throws off my whole plan haha

Thank you Boris for saying NO SMITH MACHINES FOR SQUATTING! Squatting uses so many osecondary muscles that are imperative you strengthen that you cannot any other way. Smith machine defeats that entire purpose.

Not to mention that they'll blow out your knees from the position it requires you to be in......Here's a nice article on them. http://liftbigeatbig.com/squats-barb...smith-machine/

You could try an aerobic/leg day, but it's difficult at a gym.

This means using a treadmill, jumping off mid-workout, and doing a set of something for the legs.

I do 1:00 walk/run, followed by a set of squats w/ dumbbells. Then repeat several times.

This loosens the legs up a little between sets.

DON'T FORGET TO STRETCH DURING OR AFTER EVERY WORKOUT!

Jay and Erin, good stuff!

Jay, when did you get into lifting? I know you dropped a bunch of weight in the past couple of years, is that a result of hitting the gym? I've been reading a few of your posts and you're preaching good stuff!

I really like these stretches (even though they look totally stupid) to help me keep form:

And +1 on lower weight, no pad, work on form. Also ass to grass, beyond parallel.

My addition to this thread: Drink lots of water, all the time. My goal is to drink about 100-120oz of water per day. Thanks Kurtz.

I used to do circuit training, don't know if that is still a thing. 45 minutes and I would be wiped out.
