I have never fainted til today.
While re-maxxing DL today I had my new PR on the bar. I pulled, locked it out, and started to descend. I got about 1/2 way down my thighs and dropped the weight. I grabbed the sides of the rack I was in for support, then my vision blurred and the next thing I know I feel my head bounce on the rubber flooring and I’m on my back. I sat there for a couple of minutes dumbfounded that I passed out. After that I felt fine and finished my workout.
I was holding my breath the whole time. Maybe I’ll start exhaling a little on the descent.
Has this ever happened to any of you?
Thoughts? Ideas on DL breathing technique?
I’m kinda laughing about it now, but I’m grateful I didn’t split my noggin open.
