The reason: shocks and vibration of the legs come into resonance with the gastrointestinal tract and literally make the organs “wake up” and become more active . This is especially felt by runners (there is even a special term “ runner 's diarrhea ”).

How to eliminate? Eat 2 hours before a workout and eliminate fatty and fiber-rich foods. Be sure to warm up before running.

Cold, ice-bound belly

Nausea

If nausea begins, take a few sips of water or a sports drink, or drink a little soda. You can also eat a candy to raise the level of glucose or chew gum.

Dizziness

How to eliminate? Do not forget about the warm-up before training and stretching after it. Rest between sets can be done while sitting: in any case, blood rushes to the heart. To prevent fainting and possible injury, when the condition worsens, you should sit down, and even better lie on the mat, ensuring blood flow to the head.

Pain in the side

Reason: Short-term abdominal pain ( ETAP ) is observed when running without first warming up. The blood flow increases, and blood begins to flow from the internal organs to the muscles, but this happens unevenly. The liver and spleen overflow with blood and put pressure on their own membrane.

How to eliminate? Stop or slow down. You can squeeze a aching area right on the run while inhaling and let go while exhaling - this will mechanically disperse the blood. And you should always follow the breath while running.

Dark urine

The reason: delayed muscle pain syndrome ( DOMS ) occurs 24–72 hours after a workout, performed after a long break or with increased intensity compared to a normal exercise load. Its appearance is associated with the accumulation in the muscles of metabolic products and microtraumas that inevitably occur during exercise. In this case, there is pain in the whole body or the area on which the exercises were performed, a tremor can be observed (to the extent that it is literally impossible to stand up).

How to eliminate? Try, despite the pain, move more and drink water in order to quickly remove toxins from the body. You can also get a massage.
