I notice I get lightheaded after my workouts. Any idea why?

  • I've been eating 1300-1600 calories and I usually do a 30-40 min combo of cardio and strength. I've been keeping hydrated as well because I thought that might be the problem.

    Maybe the cool down isn't long enough for you? When you stop a high-intensity workout, your heart rate abruptly decreases, but your blood vessels are still dilated. The resulting blood pressure drop results in lightheadedness. Extending your cool down should help.
