    wtf? My head went pop on a set of leg press...

    Ok, I was doing a giant set of Squats, Leg Ext and Leg press last night. When all was done and I was on my 7th rep of my leg press, something kinda went pop and my head hurt. I reckon that it was because of my poor breathing technique (poor means I wasn't breathing at all). So anyone have any idea if what happened was really bad?

    Yeah I've done that **** several times before, I ended up with excruciating head pain for several days following whenever I tried to do certain lifts where I tensed my neck. I *believe* it's due to a burst blood vessel and no it isn't serious as I'm still alive. It's a bitch though and it was hard as hell to lift the following few days.

    Happened to me to. I'd just wait a few days and see how do I feel.

    The only thing that should pop in your head are your ears . . . and only when you're on a plane, flying at 30,000 feet.

    Happened to me as well during a my heavy sets of overhead presses. It felt like it was right under my scalp, but there was no bruising so I don't think it was a blood vessel. I think it may have been some connective tissue. Having a doctor examine you would be a good idea just to be sure.
