    Default Why do I feel shaky after working out?

    Anyone have any ideas as to why I might feel shaky after working out? I almost always do at least a little bit, but not enough to worry me. But tonight I only got about 20 minutes in (on the exercise bike) and my legs felt like bricks. Once I was finished I felt pretty shaky and a little nauseous. I'm HOPING it's one of two things (or both) - I didn't have as much water as usual today and I didn't get much sleep last night.

    Should I worry?

    What meds are you on? I am on Spiro, and was told to eat something I little salty before a work out. Like a salty pickle...otherwise i get shaky and dizzy.

    I'm betting it is just a bit of fatigue. If you didn't getting a good night's sleep than that is going to wreek havoc on your body and its energy.

    I think it is a bit normal to feel shaky during and after exercise since your working your body to fatigue....that will make your muscles weak and shaky.

    I generally try to eat something like a banana before I work out, which helps (i think). It's also useful in stopping me from gorging after a workout because I become ravenous

    I am the same way! I get shaky after a good workout and was told it is because my body needs to get use to doing it. If I try to eat right after my workout then I feel like vomiting! I have to wait a little while.

    Make sure you're eating well during the day so that you have enough 'fuel' in the tank when you workout.

    I second the food/fuel. I get very nauseated during/after an intense workout if I haven't ate and hour b-4. it feels like my blood sugar crashes.
