    I've been running 6-8 miles a day and then I hit the gym for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours lifting every night. My legs have bruises all over and I dont know why :confused:

    Anyone else have this problem?

    anaemia?


    from an iron deficieny or the like?

    seriously, we'd only be guessing. See a doctor.

    I've never seen or heard of that happening. Are you sure its from working out? This is one of those times I'd see a doctor.

    Are you taking any medicine or supplements that can thin your blood?

    Are you partaking in any "rough" activities? :mamoru:

    Do you bruise easy in general? Are the bruises circular/oval-like in shape? And like Parabellum asked, are you taking any blood-thinning medications? Call your doctor up tomorrow and let him/her know/make an appointment.

    That seems like an extremely intensive program if your lifting with the goal of gaining strength I'd say your overworking yourself.

    I'd like an answer for this too. My girlfriend has been bruising continuously for the last 2 months

    Nutritional deficiencies of vitamins C, K, or B12, or folic acid can affect blood clotting.


    Dietary supplements that may increase bruising include fish oil, vitamin E, garlic, ginger, and ginkgo biloba.

    iron deficiencies will also lead to anaemia which will cause brausing.

    When I first started lifting, I got broken blood vessels on my rear delts from bench press - and it certainly wasn't from using too much weight.

    I don't know why, but the problem eventually went away...

    is it only on the legs, cos i do pretty much the same thing you do, i run about 6 or 7 miles a day, then go lifting, i haven't really noticed any bruises but i have noticed discoloration on my elbows. just small white patches, i have no clue what they are i went to the doctor and he gave me a creamt hat was a stronger verion of cortizone


    P.S - I am brown in color
