Today I experienced my first-ever blackout while squatting. I was trying to go from a 315x3 set to a 365 1RM. I maxed a week and a half ago at 335, and was feeling really good today. I went down, and when I opened my eyes, my face was almost purple from struggling to get up. My friend who was spotting is recovering from knee surgery, thank goodness it wasn’t a week ago or he wouldn’t have been able to help me up. My face still hurts from grimacing so much. Luckily, no injuries.
Anyone else have any stories of blacking out while lifting? I’ve heard of it being possible, but had never heard of anyone actually doing it.
