The Shakes and Sweats

Hi guys,
 
Wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this.
 
Finish an intense training session, have a post workout shake (Reflex Growth Matrix) and just before having my next meal (2 hours after post workout meal) I get the shakes a little and start perspiring but once I've eaten a meal, I'm fine. This has happened before but tonight is the first time it has happened in a long time.
 
Its happened again since I've reduced my carbs by 25% so I am thinking it has to do with that, but what am I supposed to do as I am trying to cut and in doing so need to cut my carbs.
 
Any ideas what this is and do I just fight through it?

    Could just be low blood suger?
    When I was prepping last year my body just sucked up my post WO shake soOo fast I was desperate for next meal, maybe you're getting an extreme of this?
    Bring meal forward so blood sugar doesn't drop so far if that's what it is?

    Your having your PWO shake and then is it 2 hours till your next solid meal?......If this is the case bring it forward as mentioned till within  45mins - an hour of your workout.

    Mmm, absolutely, yes, the meal following is about an hour away, not 2.

    Thanks guys.
     
    The 2hrs thing was something new I tried as part of changing my diet, something i read up on in a book called Championship Bodybuilding, and it did say to have a meal 1 to 2hrs after your post workout meal.
     
    I haven't had the shakes and sweats since my post, so I think all I needed to do was bring the meal forward.
     
    Thanks again for the help and advice.

    Following on from reducing my carbs, should I introduce cardio into my program from next week?
     
    I was thinking of doing 30-45 mins first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and 10 mins after my workout?
     
    Is this advisable or can anyone recommend something better?
     
    I've literally been bulking up since I started training and this is the first year I am trying to get cut and defined and I've given myself 8 weeks (from what I have read up on). I would like to get to 10% BF within the next 4 weeks and am currently around 19% (According to a home BF monitor).
     
    Please excuse my inexperience, but is this a realistic target? And is there anything more I can be doing to help me get to this target?

    I would say that is a little on the fast side.  You would have to be dropping over 2% fat per week.  This can no doubt be accomplished but I think some muscle mass would be sacrificed, particularly if unassisted. To optimally lose fat and retain/slowly build muscle then 1/2 a % per week is more realistic.  However 1% per week is acceptable with an excellent diet (in my experience).  Shedding half of your body's fat in 4 weeks is rushed.
     
    Which method are you using to measure bodyfat?  In my opinion anything but calipers - or even better water weighing - is a waste of time.  I recently had a total caliper measurement of around 20mm (roughly 8% fat- 4 sites) and my bodyfat scale (I don't use it for bf measurements) said I was 17% (total BS with abs, separated quads, 27 inch waist etc).
     
    So yeah, something to bear in mind.  Buy some cheap calipers and keep track of your supra iliac measurement regularly and then get somebody to do all four sites every week or so.  (using calipers put an end to my paranoia about how fat I was!)
     
    Good luck

    LOL! I know what you mean. I do need to lose some excess fat round the mid section but can already see some separation between my abs, chest etc. and have already gone down 2/3 holes on my belt, I then turn up at my gym and the BF reading says my BF percentage has either stayed the same or even increased! (it's an electronic one you enter your age, height, weight etc. and then hold it in front of you with both hands and wait for it to calculate).
     
    I'll get a calliper, but which are the 4 sites to measure?
     
    Cheers.

    Check out this link:

    Reasonable explanation of the four site system I use, and also has the look up tables too.  You don't need to spend that much on those particular calipers (although they are the bollox).  You can get cheap plastic ones which are reasonably accurate for what you are trying to do:

    Have fun
