anybody ever get these after lifting? i have some strange bruises on my feet. 1 on my right big toe, and 3 various ones of my left foot, one slightly big. i read this could be from weightlifting somehow.. i deadlifted a day or two earlier :confused:

am i alone here?

Could be weak veins getting hammered by heavy weight on your feet. Just a theory, but could be. Also bad shoes will do that. Dr. Schoal's shoes have a really nice support thing going there, I'd give them a look.

you wouldn't assume it's anything serious though, would you? i also read it could be a sign of blood disorders, but i doubt that.. i'm hoping it's just the weightlifting thing.. yeah i heavy deadlifted, and my shoes are getting a little worn. thanks for reply

I'm not a medical expert, but after heavy lifting on the farm with a little messed up shoes I had black spots too, I assume it was because the shoes were poor.
