Ok I was at the gym monday and I was benching I did good with flat bench I went for my 3rm and then I moved to incline db and on 2nd set I got a bad pain in the back of my neck under my skull, then I got a very bad head ache, I took the rest of week off untill today, I went in and did mt rep day, I did 185 on flat 20 times for the first set and then I moved to 2nd set and then in the middle of theb set I got a head ache, not as bad tho but it was there, I fiunshed up my workout doing light weight, what could this be? Thank you
Yea i get the same thing from time to time.
It means massive amounts of blood was being pumped into your head at once.
Prob from heavy weight or a massive pump
If your head keeps hurting see a doctor.
In general it's a bad idea to get medical advice from internet forums.
Thanks for the advice, ima go monday to thwe gym and see wat happens if I have a problem then ill see my doctor,
Exercise-induced headaches are common in novices.
What else is there? Some people get headaches when they lift but they generally don't persist throughout one's career. If you can't kick yours, see a doctor.
I had one a while ago. The problem was that I held my breath while I pressed, and that really built up the inter-cranial pressure. It was so bad I had to leave. I finished out the week with no more problems after I started concentrating on breathing and haven't had a problem since. btw- theyre called exertional headaches.
