    Does anybody ever see stars when doing Deads or heavy back lifts? I sometimes do when i'm going heavy on deads and it is usually for the frist or second rep and then it goes away, it also gets really quiet when this happens. I keep my back straight so I don't know whats up.

    happens all the time... dont worry about it.

    As Ed Rectenwald said when teaching me how to bench in a shirt, "If you aren't seeing 3 of me when you get up, you aren't doing it right"

    Sometimes when I do bent-over rows I start to black out and get light headed. It helps to do a warmup set or two to get your body used to that motion before you load on the weights.

    I'm thinkin' of switchin' from DB decline to BB decline. It's such a pain in the ass to get on the bench and then drop the DB's when I'm done.

    "Fainting may occur while you are urinating, having a bowel movement (especially if straining), coughing strenuously, or when you have been standing in one place too long."

    :ugh: who the fuck strains that much taking a shit?
