It’s not easy to deal with abdominal bloating, and it can be very discouraging if you feel bloated after working out. So many things can lead to this problem, especially what you are drinking or eating before your workout session. Identifying the underlying cause may help resolve the issue in a better way. Let’s find out more about it.
You Take Certain Medications
Abdominal bloating could also be a side effect of certain medications, such as pain control pills and anti-depressant medications. These medications have a diuretic effect – they can make you urinate or sweat more. This would make your body to retain more water, which in turn would lead to bloating.
Some medications could make you feel hungry, which would make you eat more and result in bloating. If you are taking birth control pills, you may also have to deal with water retention as a side effect. Talk to your doctor if you think your medications are making you feel bloated after workout.
You Have Digestive Issues
During vigorous exercise, blood starts moving towards your extremities, which limits the blood supply to your intestines. This can directly affect your digestive process, which in turn can cause bloating. The problem can become worse if you eat something hard-to-digest before working out. You are also likely to experience bloating and other symptoms if you already have an existing gastrointestinal disorder, such as irritable bowel syndrome.
You Have Hyponatremia
You develop hyponatremia when you do not have enough sodium in the body. It may happen when you ingest too much of water, which is going to lead to an electrolyte imbalance. Exercising for an extended period may also lead to hyponatremia. Your doctor will order a blood test to confirm whether you have hyponatremia or not.
You Have Sodium Imbalance
When there is a sodium or salt imbalance in your blood, your body will start retaining more water and fluid. This can lead to abdominal bloating. This imbalance can occur when you drink too much of water without taking enough salt. Similarly, you are likely to retain water when you sweat a lot during a workout session. If you have just started working out, you are more likely to experience water retention, as your body takes exercise as a trauma.
You Have Breathing Problems
You may experience abdominal bloating after working out if you have a problem that affects your breathing. It could happen when you have seasonal allergies. Not paying attention to your breathing pattern while working out can also cause the same issue.
You may experience a tummy ache if you forget to breathe while doing certain exercises that test your core strength. Be sure to breathe out when you exert your body and breathe in when you are relaxing during each rep.
You Do Core Workouts Frequently
Spending so much time training your abs can also leave you with bloated. Crunches are good, but doing too much of them is only going to make your workouts less effective. Many people focus too much on crunches and other core exercises because they think this will help them lose some belly fat.
Understand that spot reduction is nothing but a myth. You have to lower overall body fat percentage to notice reduction in your belly fat. Do not include too many of crunches, side planks, Russian twists, and sit-ups in your workout, and when you do these exercises, be sure to stretch your body properly before and after the exercise.
You Swallow Air During Exercise
Maintaining a right breathing pattern throughout your workout session is important. If you take shallow breaths, you may end up swallowing so much air that you feel bloated once you finish your session. Drinking too fast during exercise can also make you swallow air that result in all sorts of tummy problems.
You Become Dehydrated While Exercising
Drinking too much of water can cause problems, but drinking too little can also lead to bloating and other health problems. This happens because you lose water during exercise and become dehydrated. It is therefore a good idea to take regular sips while exercising. Otherwise, you increase your risk of dealing with tummy pain, stomach bloat, and gas.
