hey guys, just for the record and to start this out im not a huge body builder as you'll find out in the next few sentences. so i used to work out at home for a long time, i had a lot of mass gain but then i stopped, i recently started going to the YMCA to lift and the first two times i went it was great, i was very sore and noticed a lot of mass gain, the 3rd time i went i noticed that i couldnt do nearly as much weight as i usually could, and every time i lifted i got a terrible headache, since then ive gotten it at varying intensities but still it keeps me from being able to focus. ive noticed it's a lot worse when i do activities that use multiple muscles (bench pressing) versus when i do targeted work outs like bicep curls. ive tried breathing techniques, warming up a lot before i lift, stretching...im really not sure what to do
You should see a doctor. What is your weekly routine like?
I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.

i didnt mean like mass amounts but enough that i could tell there was a difference in size and even though i had put on more mass i wasnt even as strong as i used to be
There are a couple threads on this, one that I've started personally. Read up a bit and ask again if you have any specific questions. To answer the vague question of "what should I do?" I would say, see a doctor and discuss the possibility of an MRI if needed.

i think i might have figured it out to actually just be plugged up sinuses...im calling my doctor tomorrow anyway....i did some push ups earlier today and i didnt get the headache at all so i dunno...thanks for the responses, fellas
