    Why do I shake so much?!

    Alright, lately I've been noticing that when I lift, I shake a LOT! Others notice it as well. Now, most would think that it's because I'm using too much weight, but some people have said that it's not because of that when they watch me. That's how it is when I do most exercises. It is the worst when I bench press. I shake everywhere when I'm doing it. My breathing is pretty regular though. I can't stand still when I'm just hanging out, anywhere. Am I just a nervous wreck or what? If it isn't the weight that's making me shake, what could it be?

    Thanks!

    i shake slightly though, notice when i hold my hand still

    its either stress to the nervous system, or low blood-sugar level will cause it

    Also, it pretty much prevents me from lifting near as well as I should be able to. Some days I lift better than ever, but a lot of times I just get so bad that I just have to stop lifting.

    Ah yes! My hands shake a lot as well when I'm just standing around, when I'm not lifting. Kind of like how I cannot stand still. I also heard about having a low blood-sugar level, but why does that cause the shaking?

    I am one of the most laid back people I've ever known. I have no temper. I don't get annoyed or upset with people. I just worry a lot in secret. I guess that could still be a factor though?

    i agree with stabilizers. a lot of your small muscles are not caught up yet. i would reduce the weight.

    my bad, i should have been more clear. by laid back i mean i dont get annoyed with people or upset, basically what you said, but i dont really worry about anything either. i wouldnt be suprised if worrying was some kind of factor. i dunno im not an expert on this though.

    you may not want to believe it, but it's like the others said, you may be able to lift the weight with your primary muscles but your stabilizers can't hold it, you need to lower the weight and focus on slow reps emphasizing the full range of motion. you don't want to get to lifting any decent weight with weak supporters, unless you want to drop that weight on top of your chest. you might also think about changing your routine up, try to lift the weight in different positions to recruit new muscle fibers.

    I just don't see how it could really be the weight, because lately I haven't been doing much. Only in the low 100s at 150 lbs. On a lot of days I can put it up with ease, but then there are those days where I get so shaky that I can't even do it.

    I've been lifting (benching) for probably two years now. Usually two or three times a week. This week I've been slacking on my sleep, but other than that I usually have plenty. I eat good, and I'm pretty sure I have a good amount of water in me.

    your stabilizers should be pretty well developed by now... how long have you been shaking?

    Well, I would guess that it's been going on for some months now; maybe since I started lifting, I know at least since the beginning of the school year, but that's as far back as I can remember. It was just really pointed out to me yesterday though, but I've known it for awhile.

    Oh, and no, I'm not related to Janet. Well, probably somewhere down the line, but not directly.
