Hitting a hypo' mid-training session


Have you ever started in the gym, got onto the second to third exercise, and been hit with a hypo?

This used to happen to me all the time, and I see it a lot with the type 1 members of my team when they start their journey.

We all start off with the idea of having the best workout ever, the first few sets would be superb, and then WHAM the funny feelings start. The slight miss fire of the muscles, and the unexplained shake off the arms. I would hit a blood test and, sure enough, below 4!

Here are some of the things myself and my team do to combat this:

  1. We look at daily Blood Glucose patterns to see when the optimal training times are, or how we can manipulate things to make the available training times optimal.

  2. We look at the effect that different training styles have on blood glucose levels and recovery.

  3. We look at how we can manipulate foods and insulin dosage to get optimal results.

I’d you can relate to this issue and you want to see how working with me can help eliminate these issues, just get in touch and we can see about getting a plan in place for you.
