Deadlifts - Dizzy

Everytime i do a rep on deadlifts i get dizzy and light headed when at the top of the movement until i drop the bb to the floor, and once i finish a set its the worst. Any advice on what is casuing this and a solution is appreciated, cheers.

Are you holding your breath?

When you lockout, take a breath and go for the next rep. Its all in your breathing technique, learning how to breath will help solve this problem.
