dizziness during burpees
avatar
judym posted:
I'm a 50 year old female who exercises 6 or 7 days per week. I've started doing a boot camp class 2 to 3 times a week and it includes burpees. These are squats where you thrust your legs behind you, pull your legs back in, jump up into the air, and squat back down again. I become incredibly dizzy when I do these. I've also noticed that I am dizzy when I have to do a number of exercises in a prone position and then have to jump up. Any suggestions on the cause? I am perimenopausal, I tend to have low blood pressure, and I take Klonopin 10 mg every night to sleep. Is this something I need to see a doctor about?
