T Nation



My little friend just came back to pay me a visit yesterday. Fucking sucks, cant even sit down for more than 5 minutes. Been really focusing on breathing deep and exhaling, didn't have it flare up for 3 years. 1 set of 20 rep squats and wham, here I am.

Anyone else ever have hemorrhoids?






BTW, pics or it didn't happen.



on a serious....how do you get hemorrhoids?


One of my powerlifting buddies gets hemmies when doing squats more than once a week. I reckon it is somewhat common. Although I believe his were internal and would streak bright red blood on the outside of his shit.


I think it's a wiping problem.


is that serious? so as long as i wipe me ass good and don't squat more than once a week i'll be ok?


Holding your breath and trying to poop on every exercise? Even the leg abductor and adductor.


i got them, right now!
i got them because i (stupidly) ate practicly no fibre for about 4 weeks i was cutting and basicly all i was eating was meat eggs and whey protein. dont try it i may hav lost alot of fat but my butt hole hates me.

EDIT: psyllium husk capsules are gods gift to me right now LOL


i honestly can't tell if you guys are joking or not


Actually I'm being serious :expressionless: <---- look at my face, does that look serious to you?

JK I'm not serious but yes it's a infection of your anus. I described a hernia to scare you.


It's from straining when you poop. If there is no flow, let it go. Don't push too hard when you are tying to shit. Just wait it out, let it fall out on it's own. But I'm not a doctor, so take that for what it's worth.

After looking this up you should check out prolaspe(sp?) and goatsee(sp?) also. More important medical facts for you to know.

As far as the squats, I'm obviously a pussy because I don't have to push with my anus and intestines to get the bar back up.


i call bullshit on that face!


woah, one of us assholes needs to look this up on the internets, because I always thought your "joking" response was what it really was. It's an infection?


Don't check the wikipedia. They include a picture.


At least my ass hole loves me! Excuse me while I go shave it and stoke it as I call it brownie :wink:


Well it can be if it breaks open and fecal matter gets into it?


WebMD you bastards

What Causes Hemorrhoids?

About half of the people in the U.S. will suffer from hemorrhoids at some point in life; for most, this will happen between ages 20 and 50. Researchers are not certain what causes hemorrhoids. "Weak" veins -- leading to hemorrhoids and other varicose veins -- may be inherited.

It's likely that extreme abdominal pressure causes the veins to swell and become susceptible to irritation. The pressure can be caused by obesity, pregnancy, standing or sitting for long periods, straining on the toilet, coughing, sneezing, vomiting, and holding your breath while straining to do physical labor.

Diet has a pivotal role in causing -- and preventing -- hemorrhoids. People who consistently eat a high-fiber diet are less likely to get hemorrhoids, but those who prefer a diet high in processed foods can expect them. A low-fiber diet or inadequate fluid intake can cause constipation, which can contribute to hemorrhoids in two ways: It promotes straining on the toilet and it also aggravates the hemorrhoids by producing hard stools that further irritate the swollen veins.


ok so far i've got:

don't strain when i poop

eat fiber

don't try to poop when squatting
