    Felt weird while exercising

    So I have been doing the Hero's Journey at my own pace not overdoing it, not pushing hard but enough to sweat of course, but I have never felt like this before, while exercising I felt like I was going deaf, vision went tunnelled, a bit dizzy and unbalanced, I took my heart rate with a blood pressure monitor while exercising and it was surprisingly low the first time and then the next time it was even lower, 127 over 91 with a pulse of 102 and it showed that I had an irregular heartbeat, I did it again after and it was sorta the same but without the irregular pattern, this has never happen before, I have a healthy heart as far as all my recent results have been I even has an ECG not too long ago and everything came back normal? Is this something to be concerned about or is it just because the workout its self is a bit hard going and my body wasn't prepped?

    I managed to do 7 sets when I thought i couldn't manage 5, so I was well over the moon!

    It is hard to say. No one here is a doctor, but that does sound like a reason for concern. It depends a bit where you are on your fitness journey. If you are mostly just starting out I might consider pausing HJ and moving to a lower level program. Either way I would suggest checking with a doctor.

        I agree with CaptainCanuck - check with your doctor. If you're just starting on your fitness journey, it could be just because you're doing unusual stuff to your body. But it's always good to get the All-Clear from your medical practitioner.

          It also sounds a bit like a low blood sugar issues, when had you eaten last?

          ​​​​​I agree with consulting a doctor though!

            I understand that you are asking this as more of a "what would you do?" but it still hard to answer. I have spent a decent amount of my life exercising so I generally understand what I can and can't do and when my body is saying that something is hard versus something that is impossible.

            The Navy Seals have catch phrase that "pain is weakness leaving the body." Catchy I guess, but the Navy Seals in their training are never very far from medical help and they are being supervised by people who have done the same things before and so know that those things are possible. As mostly individuals undertaking our own training we have to be a lot more vigilant. We can say that we are being tough and pushing through the pain, but we have to know what is advantageous versus what is dangerous. The training plans, programs, workouts and so on are given levels for a reason. Part of it is so that we can challenge ourselves, but another part is to say "maybe this isn't for me." Did you do the self assessment to see which program/workout level that you should be doing?

            All that said without knowing really anything about your capabilities and the fact that you have frequent access to a doctor, I would say that if you feel as bad as you say that you should drop down the difficulty. Fitness is not a race, it is a lifestyle, so take your time and enjoy the journey.

              From own experience, it could be either what Anek mentioned, or lack of salt. What you've described sometimes happens to me on hot days, when I sweat and drink a lot, but don't have enough salt. I know nowadays it's all the rage to take the p*ss on salt, but it's important if you do heavy physical stuff. Having a cup of broth or just a pinch of salt diluted in water is what helps me most of the time.

                low blood sugar is definitely a thing, Are you overheating? Are you remembering to breath? I know that sounds like a dumb question, but I know I have a tendency when I'm doing yoga, pushups, planks, burpees, heck even running up a flight of stairs sometimes, I find myself holding my breath for no real reason

                  Suggest you pay attention to your body. You could take time off from the program you're working or try another.

                  And as everyone else has said, consulting a professional would bring clarity.
