    Bloody Nose

    Today I got a bloody nose after 4 sets of deadlifts. I am not particularly concerned about this, but I would like to know any potential health side-affects.

    maybe you should remember to breathe, lol. if you have a bloody nose or feel dizzy, it would actually be a good idea to try to focus on your breathing as well next time.

    It usually happens because there is an extreme rise in blood pressure during exercises like the squat and deadlift. The blood vessels within your nose are weak and sensitive, so they will often open up.

    Nothing to be too concerned about.

    I've gotten them since I was a little kid. Some of the major factors are things like blowing my nose, lifting hard and especially the weather outside. Cold dry weather always increases my chances of bloody noses. Hot and dry as well. Just saying those could be factors in why you got it. As long as it isn't bleeding too heavily and stops w/in a half hour it's not a big deal.

    Let it drip out and smear it around.

    This will make you that much more bad-ass after a set of heavy deads.
