I donated blood yesterday evening and I was wondering if it would be a good idea to workout tonight.

Usually from what I remember at least, they say give your body 24 hours to recover. So depending on the time you did it yesterday and the time of your workout. Go for it.

No problem dude. But if you start to feel light headed and all that stuff...stop, drink **** tons of fluids.

I work out the next day all the time when I give blood, and good for you for doing it, too.

Generally, though, I go at aound 75% of usual the day after.

And not a day you want to do something like HIIT!

Yeah I try and do it at least once or twice a year. I think I might even cut out the cardio completely tonight and do it tomorrow. I really don't want to pass out tonight at the gym.

its never a bad idea to deadlift.

haha but seriously, OP, they normally tell you 24 hours to recover at least, and i would also suggest adding extra carbs to your pre-workout meal to ramp up the blood sugar. itll help keep you from being as light headed and tired. also, like said about, fluids, lots of fluids!
