Stacking

Postby CharlesandLinda » Wed Apr 27, 2016 7:15 pm

If I do stacking, I feel as if I am going to pass out. And this is the first or second time I stack. Am I not doing it correctly?

For some people, this can be a normal sensation. How is your blood pressure?

Actually, you are doing it TOO correctly. The high chest pressures are decreasing venous return to the heart a bit and your blood pressure is decreasing. We should check to what pressures you are stacking too and set volume targets for you.
