    The last three times (last 3 weeks) I've deadlifted I've gotten bloody noses. Only happens when I go heavy and at the top of the rep.

    I don't know if I am holding my breath too much or what. I usually take a deep breath at the bottom and steadily blow it out on the way up.

    It's usually just like a little geyser of blood that squirts out, it's not an ongoing bleed like say from allergies or something. I usually just shove some tissue up there and keep going. Anyone else experience this?

    Doesn't happen when I go heavy with squats/bench press so I :dunno:

    I'm no doctor, but I'd be willing to go out on a limb and say that's not good.

    Wow... You must be putting a lot of stress on the veins in your nose

    maybe try not straining your face while you lift. i used to get REALLY bad pains in the back of my head when i did overhead press, so i try relaxed my face and neck and it wouldnt hurt so bad

    I'd say that that doesn't seem good. But in light of the situation (take a vid...) I think it would be freaking awesome to see someone DL at my gym and have blood gush out of his nose like a chemtrail or something.

    pretty sure I am :dunno:

    It always comes out of my left nostril, so I think there is a vein in there that is real weak/close to the surface or something.

    I've heard of people going to the doctors to get the inside of their noses cauterized to stop constant nose bleeds. Maybe I should do that :o
