Does anyone else yawn while working out?

Yep, yawn. I know, it sounds weird. But I can be doing the heaviest and hardest cardio workout that my body can stand and I start to yawn. No just deep inhalations through my mouth, but a full out yawn. I'm not even tired or anything. It's quite bizarre.

So friends, tell me, do any of you yawn too? Seriously, I feel like a freak on the damn elliptical sweating and huffing and puffing and yawning!

Yawning isn't caused from being tired - you yawn when you need more oxygen, so that makes perfect sense to me. I don't though.

This was awhile back but some researchers at the University of Albany concluded according to their research the oxygen theory is false.

I always thought it was the oxygen theory too.

But why is yawning so contagious?

Well that's the weird thing. the theory according to the article, is that if it was because a lack of oxygen there'd be no instinctual need to copy people, because every body could tell itself when to yawn.

But with the alertness/brain cooling/efficiency theory, when you're with others it instinctually makes you all more aware, more awake, and more alert. so i guess that kind of makes sense (like thinking of cavemen days or something) lol
