When I was done, I exited the gym's main entrance. The next thing I know, I'm almost home since my bus is getting close to my station.
In between that, I can't remember anything. It was just pitch black for over 45 minutes. I don't remember sitting on the bus, walking to the bus or anything else.
It freaks me out, and I wonder if any of you guys have experienced similar things or have some other kind of experience like this?
Only once, and oddly enough, it was after gym aswell.
Side note in my case i was 16 and stupid.
For me, i went to the gym like a madman train my *ss off till i can't no more and afterwards,
i went to the lounge area of the gym, sat at the bar and ordered myself a nice cold glass of fresh beer
freshly tapped (how u say that in english?). Stupidest thing of the world, serving fresh beer in a gym,
and even more stupid of me to actually go and have it 'coz it kinda undoes all the work i did before.
anyway, i did that regularly but i guess once, i just took a couple too many. All i remembered was that
i went to the gym, did my workout, had a couple of cold ones, went to my motorcycle, and somehow
drove home and waking up the next day not remembering what happened after i left the gym and untill then.
i decided to never drink too much and drive ever again, and have been doing ever since.
now to the point that i think might hit te sweet spot.
It probably wasn't the alcohol at all that had me blank.
Thing is, your body needs nutrients. When you go work out, amino acids are probably the most important ones.
Your body gets amino acids from the stuff you eat or consume. I had a time that i went to the gym like a beast,
never did no cheating like steroids or stuff like that but i did take 1 thing: amino acid pills. It's rather a 100% natural product as it's the same stuff you find in for example chicken.
For me, it helped a lot to give the body enough nutrients/materials to be able to work out, and for having enough supply of the nutrients/building materials after working out. The body NEEDS nutrients work, especially after workouts, so it must take it from somewhere.
Something to grasp: muscle pains due to 'too much' work at the gym is not normal and not a healthy thing. it does not mean you worked too hard or did too much. all it means is that your body doesn't have enough 'ingredients' to repair the damage done to the muscles (after all, building muscles is about tearing them on the muscle fiber level so they can heal themselves and get thicker and stronger). Muscle pain thus is not a good thing or a sign you did too much;
it's a sign you haven't had or don't have enough nutrietns/ingredients.
The result is that you lost energy and work at the gym because you don't have enough nutrients. that means if you had enough nutrients, you would have a better result. so there are 2 ways to overcome this problem:
1 - work out less / 2 - have more nutrients
so what happens is when you don't have enough supply of nutrients, like amino acids, you get a problem: the body still needs it. you don't have it, but it absolutely needs it. so the body is going to get it from something, somehow.
this can - in some cases - result in that your muscles are going to empty all the amount of supply you were carrying with you, which ultimately results in the problem that your brain is suddenly finding itself without those nutrients and that will have consequences.
so if you ask me, i would say you have overdone it regarding work and physical demand and nutrient supply,
resulting in a lack of materials the brain needs to fully operate at it's desired levels resulting in a lower state of
mental or concious activity, in other words, black out/memory fade.
lesson learned: take more building blocks. eat more chicken, rice, food with nutrients. or take healthy and natural supplies.
