View Full Version : Red in the Face

02-20-2004, 05:12 PM
I was just wondering if this happens to anyone else. When I push against my belt for a lift, I sometimes get red in the face. This lasts for several days, its under my eyes, it looks like I just got out of the cold or something. Another lifter who gets this also explained that I bust capillaries in my face.

This only happens when do good mornings, squats, or deadlifts. Even when I do wear a belt when bench this doesn't happen. This happen to me today, even though it was a speed squat day, so I probably used to much weight, what do you guys think?

Just wondering if this happens to anyone else, if so from what exercises.

thx for your time

If your just talking about busted blood vessels then it happends to me whenever i go heavy. Any lift i do i can get them, bench/squats/deads etc.
The reason that you probly get them only on squats and deads is because they are full body lifts and i find them easier in general to strain on.
