I’m a strength athlete, and sometimes while pushing or pulling heavy weight I hold my breath and become red in the face. Lately I’ve noticed I’m getting broken capillaries all over my cheeks. Has anyone else ever gotten these?
I’d say most people who’ve ever truly starined to lift have gotten them.
During meets or days when I max on squat, bench, and deadlift, I’ll typically get them all over my face, neck and down across the front of my traps.
It’s just what happens. It’s fun to watch people look at you and try to figure out what happened.
I know what you mean, I have a dark reddish spot on my left earshell after a hard exertion. And I dont’t think it will go away without cosmetic surgery, I have some vague idea that there is a laser treatment.
I’ve blown out my eye a couple of times and reguarly end up with a red/purple face after heavy geared days.

Yep, all it means is you’re lifting heavy stuff.
It really bothers me that I haven’t gotten a bloody nose yet. I need to push myself

Hahaha I’ve only ever gotten close to that once. Brand new Katana + lots of triples + heavy heavy cold = very close to a bloody nose
