Yesterday I passed out in middle of workout.
>about to do last set of OHP
>use belt cuz had some back pain and also helps to stabilize core
>take bar into hands
>do the heimlich
>next thing I know I'm lying on the floor under my bench with my whole body shaking uncontrolably
>fortunately my bench was right behind me so I apparently hit my head on the bench first rather than straight on the concrete floor
>The plates had fallen from the other side of the bar so the bar probably flipped to the side rather than falling straight on me
>get to it, timer on phone shows I literally passed out for only a second or so
>big bump on back of my head, feeling a bit confused
>probably a concussion
>decide to fuck it, finish set without problem and proceed to finish workout as well without issues
>feel hung over for rest of day

Thankfully this happened at my garage-gym so no-one witnessed me spazzing out in public.

Anyone else had this happen to them? Post stories.

Your belt was way too tight bro
>hitting squats last week
>singles at 95%
>followed by an amrap at 85%
Start seeing spots by last 3 reps, almost black out on last rep, left ear is muffled for like the next 5 minutes

OHP is a bitch to do in higher reps. As soon as I feel like pressure in head is rising and I'm not breathing properly, I just give up on that set.
>>
>>48633709
Yeah, it probably was, had puller it one tighter than I usually do for squats as it felt loose while standing straight I suspect that it was partly due to low blood sugar as well, had eaten only a small lunch.

I've felt lightheaded before so I wasn't that worried about it. In hindsight, I probably should've been more careful about the concussion though.

>>48633746
Yeah, I have no recollection of how many reps I did if I did any before passing out. I have a feeling I did maybe one or two but it's all really fucking fuzzy.

What mode of insecurity is this and is it achievable naturally?

Stopped reading right there. Learn how to fucking brace retard.

>>48633694
Never passed out, but one time I went ass to grass on the last rep of a set of squats and held a huge breath of air in my mouth as I went up and the pressure it caused in my head felt like I caused a huge fucking hemorrhage in my brain. I literally thought that I might possibly die and was looking around the gym to see if people were looking at me funny to gauge how deathly I looked. Ended up finishing the rest of my workout without dying but, for a few weeks after that, whenever I went heavy of a compound lift I would get huge migraines that lasted minutes at a time. That was a while ago now and I haven't had any issues since but fuck me lads do not hold your fucking breath in your mouth while you lift.
>>
This sometimes happens to me if I brace and hold my breath too long before starting my OHP work set. Last time this happened, I felt lightheaded and tingly everywhere. My legs were jello but I managed to rerack the weight. I felt high for like 5 seconds.

Your brain is not getting enough oxygen my dude

retarded shit like this is how you hurt yourself. then three months later when your back/knees/all joints are fucked you come cry on /fit/.
>>
>>48636266


this passing out while lifting is something to worry about
>>
It's normal to sometimes get light headed or even passing out when going very hard. So long as it doesn't happen like clockwork or when you're not exerting yourself extremely, you don't need to worry.
>>

its not normal faggot,its called having a weak hearth

You're retarded. I'm a medical student and let me tell you about a case I've seen not so long ago
>30-something yr old woman goes to visit her friends' house
>she rings the doorbell a few times, they're not home
>she takes a few steps back to peer through their window
>slips and falls backwards and bonks her head on the concreet, passes out for a few minutes
>goes home, starts seeing loss of concentration in the next few days
>goes to the doc, they want her to stay in the hospital for observation
>lady goes home because she's a retard like you
>her job is a school teacher, has to start preparing curriculums soon
>can't because loss of focus
>can't keep her shit together during class
>goes on rehabilitation because her loss of focus is so bad she can't work
>the doctors find out she has severe brain trauma
>she is now retired at 30 because she can't work

Go to the doctor after any brain injury you imbecils.

My hearth is literally blazing strong.
>>
>>48636539

this

>>48636547

having a good cardio doesnt mean you have a strong hearth, you never know how strong is your heart untill you get a heart arrest, you smoke for 40 years or you are in your 100 year old

cardio is good for your hearth but its nothing but conditioning

your hearth is not as strong as you think, that means take care of yourself when lifting heavy

Imagine being so retarded that you forget to breathe while holding 100+lbs over your head.

You deserve to die.

Does having a seizure after finishing up deadlifts count as passing out?

I get tunnel vision, lose balance, and get light headed after every set of deadlifts. Its got to the point where I will lift next to something I can lean against after the set until I recover. I feel fine during the lifts. I just assumed that it was blood rushing to my head after the pressure is released.
>>
Almost passed out during front squats cause the bar was pressing against my throat. It was kinda nice
>>
>>48634712
It happened to me once when I stoop up fast and didn't catch the breath, the next thing I remember is shaking my head against the floor, the whole thing felt refreshing, like a harmonic peace after lsd trip

I nearly always pass out when maxing on OHP when I hold my breath too early. Kinda got used it by now.
>One time max out on OHP off pins (nose level)
>Finish the rep
>Start to see stars and black spots
>Grab on the barbell for dear life so I won't fall down
>Had to just stand there for 20 seconds and look on the ground so I wouldn't die

4/5 was a solid experience

That's not what a belt is for you stupid fucking DYELs. It's to give your abs something to push against while bracing to create intrabdominal pressure, keeping your torso more rigid during heavy lifts. It's not to help with back pain, or keep you from getting a hernia or slipped disc. Lift for more than a year before posting

Nigger, why do you think you are creating the pressure in your abs in the first place? It's meant to stabilize your core so your spine stays neutral, ie doesn't bend, ie doesn't give you a fucking spinal hernia. You can do it with just bracing your abs, but you will always get a better pressure with a belt, ie protect your spine better. I don't use a belt because I think it helps my back, it literally makes my back NOT HURT while I lift. So how about you research your shit before posting.

What can doctors even do in that case?
>>
>>48639506
It doesn't protect your back you moron, it just makes it so you can lift more because it keeps your torso rigid.
t. Reps your max with and without a belt

This always happens on my last rep of heavy weighted chins. The other day, I did 60 1x5. The 4th rep was really hard, but on the 5th, I pulled about half way, then sort of levitated up
>>
>>48636539
What a horrible story
>>
>>48633694
Sounds like low blood pressure are you cutting?
Ive heard of that happening on deads but never ohp. See a doctor tho, and dont use a belt if youre hurting, lower the weight and go raw
>>
>>48634135
>do not hold your fucking breath in your mouth
what is valsalva
>>
>>48642437
You are better off holding your breath with the pressure against your glottis which you close and hold tight. Letting the air past the glottis and then trying to hold it causes pressure fluctuation in the Eustachian tubes, which can cause a number of issues, most immediate of which might be dizziness/disorientation or possibly nausea (as a result of the dizziness/disorientation), and doing this regularly with high pressure is likely to increase the risk of resulting in injury.

In other words, hold your breath in with your glottis, not your mouth.
