Feeling shaky after a workout can happen due to various reasons, which are usually nothing to worry about; it could be that you overexerted yourself, that you are not used to the workout, that your sugar dropped, or that you have low (or high) blood pressure.
My personal experience:
The most common causes I have personally experienced are overexerting myself, having my sugar drop due to not having a proper meal before the workout, or not being used to the workout. The last one happens mostly when I have not worked out for a long while and have to begin again.
What to do if you feel shaky after a workout?
It’s normal for it to happen sometimes, and can easily be solved by drinking some water, sitting down, and eating something such as candy or cookies. However, if the problem persists and you feel shaky after every workout, it’s probably better to visit a doctor.
How to avoid being shaky after a workout?
Be sure to eat well before the workout with enough time to allow your body to process the food, and keep candy or cookies with sugar in your gym bag just in case. If you feel you are overworking yourself and start to feel faint or shaky, sit down somewhere and take a break, drink some water, and when you feel better, you can continue your workout but taking it slower, or you can call it quits for the day to let your body rest properly.
What workouts should you avoid when you feel shaky?
Suppose you notice that a certain workout or exercise constantly leaves you feeling weak or shaky, attempt to lower the repetitions or weight, modifying it to be easier on your body. However, if that does not work, you should avoid it completely. But don’t worry, most times, making sure you eat properly and taking it easy are the solution!
