Don't get up quickly from a prone position
Today, My son Michael was at home and he got up quick from the couch and blacked out and fell on the coffee table and banged his face up. I have seen numerous clients do the same thing. If you are on the floor exercising or lying down, try not to jump up quickly. The change in going from the lying position to standing, when done quickly, sometimes causes you to short out your circuits. The result can be painful such as Michael's fall. He was taken to the ER and recieved an EKG and CT scan. He turned out to be ok and was released with ice and motrin as the treatment plan. He's doing good now but will have a shiner. So try to get up slowly when you can and avoid a painful fall.
