    Bursting blood vessels?






    Has anyone here experienced bursting a blood vessel in your eye? I came home from the gym Saturday morning and noticed that one side of my eye was completely red. I'm guessing it was the dead lifts that did it, but I'm not entirely sure. I got it checked out by the doctor, and she said it will start healing on its own in about 2 weeks, which I'm pissed about because I have my prom next friday. Just curious if anyone else has had this happen to them, and if there is some way of preventing them?

    I'm guessing that I didn't breathe correctly at some point while doing deads, but I have no idea.

    Any thoughts?

    My arms get broken blood vessels....usually when i do walking lunges and holding 25 lbs in each arm. My doc just said it was from exertion. He said not to worry...but breaking them in your eyes may be a bit more alarming...

    I got that once when I first started performing heavy leg press. It was a result of holding my breath.

    Try to control your breathing when working out

    controlled breathing is a must...i had a lifting partner about 2 years back that was benching and while pushing he wasnt breathing and he poped some shit in the back of his lower head, by the neck..put him in a lot of pain for about 2-3 weeks....after that he never forgot to breath.
