I've noticed this, and so has sister Jennifer. We asked Mike Monroe of Push.TV and he said it was due to not getting enough carbs and we should have a little water and something like an apple before a workout.

Here are a couple of threads that might help. Smelling ammonia-like scent after a good cardio workout!

I'm in one of those threads, and just wanted to add that both times that I've experienced this it was in the beginning of my fitness program just as I was getting active again. Once it stopped, it never came back. So wonder if it's also related to somehow changing your body chemistry and how your muscles utlize and convert energy or something. Just more food for thought....
