This may or may not be an issue. When I deadlift, the blood gets squeezed out of my fingers and hands. If I do more than a couple reps my fingers begin to turn purple from lack of blood, and they remain white while taking about 5 minutes for the blood to return to them. This can't be normal but the question is, do I need to deadlift more? or is this a problem and I should deadlift less?
i'm no scientist. but i think you may have a bigger problem than deadlifting. lmao
thats just odd
how much weight are you deadlifting? maybe you could try using straps to get some extra support from your wrists and put less strain on your hands

I have a similar problem my fingers don't change colors but they get numb and i cant even make a fist right after sometimes i cant finish my set because i will just drop the bar if i hold it any longer.
Are you a smoker? Mabye you have blood circulation issues, if not then I'm not sure what it could be.
i'm thinking I might have circulation issues. This is from deadlifting only about 240. Non-smoker, exercise regularly lifting and running. It really concerns me because it happens in all my lifts but most directly affects deadlift where grip is taxed the most
Just curious, are you using gloves? Chalk? Pronated grip? Supinated grip?
no gloves or chalk, double overhand grip. I also hurt my wrist doing deadlift a few months ago and its been weird ever since, I really need to see a doctor I guess
