    I normally hit the gym right after work 5:00pm-ish and work out till 7:30-8:00ish.

    During the day I hardly ever yawn, something about the gym makes me yawn like crazy. I'm yawning non-Stop (a few times every half hour). I don't feel tired and I'm working hard but I still yawn.

    Anyone else have this issue? Could it be from pre workouts? Boredom? It's just weird, been happening for a few years.

    I can't remember where, but I read that it's your body's response to lack of oxygen. Olympic runners yawn a lot before a race, I don't exactly understand why we do this though, I yawn in the gym too some days, it's usually when I'm drained though.

    Interesting, I used to be a conditioned athlete. I don't really recall yawning, but then again I was five years younger and not working 9 hour days

    I work a lot and I go to the gym around 8pm on average. When I go that late I yawn A LOT inbetween sets

    This happens to me a lot especially when I lift really heavy doing legs.
    I'm at the gym at around 1PM and sleep 8+ hrs.
    Good to know I'm not the only one yawning lol
     
  6. Sorry bro's.. if you're yawning--you're not pushing enough weights! Doing them 50lb dumbbell for PR and yelling "Light weight" doesn't cut it! :)

    I prefer to just stick to the smith machine for exercises.

    Dumbbells = Calluses

    I get that a lot in my line of business. People being stressed out of their mind and yawning. I am working with a junior and she yawns her face off every time her and I talk together. Not because we have so boring discussions, but she knows she need to up her game, step out of her comfort zone and get into character. The body reacts by yawning: an involuntary reaction to the body believing that it need to have more oxygen. Same thing in the gym: you are yawning because your body translates your efforts in the gym to wanting/needing more oxygen to pick up heavy stuff.

    Yeah like these guys said. Your body thinks in needs more oxygen. I always end up yawning at the gym. Sort of annoying really.

    If you don't have calluses, you're not doing enough deadlifts ;) rub some chalk on it and keep pulling damnit!!!

    I like eating them. Looks like you're sort of trying to cram a flat hand into your mouth. I have a lot of fun with that. No, I don't have a life. D
