    Passed out in the middle of the gym yesterday...

    So a little history, when I was 22 I was having some heart problems. My heart would slow way down and stop and I would pass out. When I came to everything was fine. I was hospitalized for 2 weeks and they couldn't fin out was wrong. Finally sent to a big heart hospital in OKC. They did a tilt table test where they strap you down to a table, tilt it to like an 80 degree angle and inject synthetic adrenaline into you. Normal ppl's hearts go ape shit, mine slowed down. From that they diagnosed me with some form of hypotension. I was put o some meds and told to make sure I drink lots of Gatorade for the sodium and electrolytes. I'm a former IV drug user and they attributed it to this.

    Fast forward to now, I haven't had ANY issues with this except for about 4 years ago I was ****ing the shit out of my old bosses daughter and passed out lol. I've been off the meds for years now. So as most of you know I'm running a tren/prop cycle. Been watching my BP and it's been in normal range the whole time. I work in a huge metal building with no AC. It's been around 90-100 degrees and 50-80% humidity. I work 12 hr shifts and just switched to nights so my sleep is all twisted. I drink about 2 gallons of water a night.

    So here's the story. Went to the gym to get a quick ab and bi workout in. Only had about 30 min so I was doing super sets trying to rush. Did preacher curls then straight to reverse curls. I got light headed and I felt my heart start to slow down so I started walking over to a table they have to the side ppl use to lay on and stretch out. I knew I was gonna go out from my past and I should of just went to the bench and layed down. Got about 4 ft from the table and next thing I know I'm waking up on the floor wondering where the **** I am. Jammed my thumb, split my lip open and bruised my shoulder. Luckily no one saw me, I'd they did they didn't come over lol it wasn't very busy thankfully cuz I'm sure ppl would of freaked out.

    So my thinking is this, of course I'll be keeping a VERY close eye on this, drinking more Gatorade instead of so much water and slowing down a little in the gym. If I have any more issues I'm going to drop the tren and take a 4-6 wk break from it. If that doesn't help I'll be starting PCT which will suck since this icycle is supposed to Run til the end of summer but my health comes first. I think the tren might play a small roll in this but with my previous medical history and experience its more then likely I need more sodium and electrolytes. Moral of the story kids, listen to your body, even though my plan is run to til aug and I have a ton of gear I have no problem cutting my cycle short if it means my health is in danger. I'll keep you guys updated on what's going on.

    Do you work out alone or with a spotter? take care of yourself and try to find a partner for the gym if you don't already have one.

    Re: Passed out in the middle of the gym yesterday...

    that is a very weird condition colt. Did the docs have a name for it? Now if you have a heart attack later on in life I dont think the medics will be able to save you. Epinephrine (adrenaline) is the first line of defense while working a code (some one who died and you are trying to revive). Epi is suppose to get the heart pumpin but for you it will just keep it asleep from what it sounds. I know I get light headed when I super set and dont take breaks while on tren....along with the gatorade, you should def take it a little slower in the gym you freak of nature!!!

    I can't remeber the exact name of it. Something hypotension. It was 8 yrs ago when I was in the hospital for it. Yeah I just got a ton of gatorade and gonna make sure I'm not rushing in the gym. Either way I'll be good. Not really worried about it. My girls kinda trippin tellin me it's the gear and I need to come off but I'd never even cycled before when it first started 8 yrs ago.
