Lately I've been taking longer and longer inbetween sets to catch my breath and slow my heart down to a comfortable rate. For the longest time I thought I was really going to die and I had messed my heart up.... but then I remembered you hold POUNDS of water on gear.
To fix this, I was thinking about fast-walking on a treadmill for an hour and a half for the next 7 days. I was planning on wearing to pairs of sweatpants and 2 sweaters, a hat and the hoods up, my goal obviously trying to lose 3-5 lbs of water and get my heart back to normal.
It's a very uncomfortable feeling when my heart speeds up and beats irregularly in the gym after a hard set. I LOVE the gym, the pain, the setting... but it's hard to do so when you're heart feels tight and about to explode. I'm 95% sure it's a combination of ZERO cardio, putting on some fat, holding pounds of water and maybe 10% gear-related issues such as slightly higher cholesterol. By the way, I had my blood pressure and heart rate and all that checked a couple days ago, to see if there were any SEVERE problems... nothing besides 5 points over the normal diastolic rate.
You've come through with some f*cking great responses and suggestions in the past. This is probably one of the biggest issues I've had to deal with so far. Any suggestions & thoughts would be great.
