foot pump(???) during cardio....
i have no other way to explain this....but im getting massive feet and, i guess, ankle pumps that keep cutting my cardio sessions short. I do cardio fasted in the morning with xtend...very low intensity. I am using aas but nothing i havent done before.... My ankles start to throb and pulsate after about 20 minutes and my feet become completely bloated and pumped up....its painful! anyone else ever experience anything like this?

Are you retaining water and are your feet and ankles normally swollen with edema?

Is your style of cardio different than from the past? Are you doing it on incline? Have you not done much cardio for a while until recently? What about your shoes? Are they new? Or different than the normal ones you wear? I recently changed from some decent new balance that weren't worn out or anything, but got some new under armour shoes. After a few weeks of the new ones, I wore the NB's and they just didn't feel good to me. I haven't worn them since.

is it because you are so hayuge now your ankles can't support you?
I get some moreso in arch of foot and foot in general but it seems from electrolyte imbalance, so more like cramps

Moochman, how are the shoes? Too tight? Proper arch support? Having been a professional snowboarder and bootfitter for quite some time, Ive learned that improper support of the foot when doing physical activity can lead to a myriad of problems.

im sporting a pair of airmax 360's, with the cushioning all around, for my cardio....i dont think its the shoes....but its all moot...i hurt my back the other day so im probably not doing any cardio for a while.....

Ok..but just something to ponder on. Not sure how the back ailment came into play but a poorly supported foot will also relate to back problems. My alpine snowboarding boots are pretty tricked out...costing over $600 for the pair...even being a top of the line boot, the insoles were garbage, offered no support, and as a result performance was poor and it also equated to lower back problems. Food for thought.

i have hip problems which leads to back problems....but its never led to foot problems before....im going to take some time off and get back at it in a week or two and revive this thread if im still having troubles with the cardio....thanks for the advice though man....
