    Seeing stars after deadlifting 1 rep max. iso hlp plz

    Ok this hasnt happened in a while. i had this a lil while back, i would see starts after deadlifting or while pickin up the weight. well today i had that problem. I went for my 1 rep max i got it up decently, I didn't really strain that hard in my opinion. after I put the weight down i saw little dots or stars w/e u wana call them. I saw them for like 10 seconds than they went away.

    I'm not a doc, but I'd suggest you see one about this, right away.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    "The fitness and nutrition world is a breeding ground for obsessive-compulsive behavior. The irony is that many of the things people worry about have no impact on results either way, and therefore aren't worth an ounce of concern."--Alan Aragon

    It happens, sometimes from holding your breath a bit too long, sometimes from a sudden change in blood pressure.

    After fighting a heavy stone things usually go a little fuzzy for a few seconds.

    Were you wearing a belt? If you were wearing a belt and you had the belt tightened for too long before the lift, or you spent too long in the bottom position, getting set up etc then it can be purely from that.

    The action of the belt affects your blood pressure, which can cause the seeing stars bit, so that's one possible reason (as is holding your breath which has already been mentioned).

    On a side note, one of the first indications I had that my heart wasn't functioning fully was my going temporarily blind when I did deadlifts; so it doesn't do any harm to get it checked out if it keeps happening.
    Screw nature; my body will do what I DAMN WELL tell it to do!

    The only dangerous thing about an exercise is the person doing it.

    They had the technology to rebuild me. They made me better, stronger, faster......

    The guys above have given some sound advice around what could be causing it. I would question why you focus so regularly on your 1RM. Personally, I've never done it and I dont see it as a robust and reliable measure of progress. I would recommend regular poundage progression and tracking your progress instead. When you look back and realise that you now warm up with your max from 2 years ago, you'll see clearly enough that you've progressed.

    (Unless of course you're a competitive powerlifter or strongman)

    Bumping this one...

    I've been experiencing the same thing as the OP since I got the DL's in the 450 lb range back in November. Yesterday I hit the 475 mark and I saw the stars for about 15 seconds. I didn't feel dizzy, but it freaks me out a bit. Do any of you experience anything like this?

    I don't get it from weight training but I frequently see stars after sneezing. Providing you're not suffering vertigo or feeling feint, then I doubt it's cause for concern. It tends to be created by straining which creates pressure in the head and sometimes affects the retina of the eye. Once pressure restores a few seconds after completing the lift, the stars disappear.
    Accept difference. Not indifference.

    It could be as simple as you held your breath and strained too hard and no big deal, or you could have strained to hard and the stars are a rush of blood through your eyes from your retina tearing or a slight seperation. If you saw a huge flood of stars, that would be more concerning. If it was just a few, then next time focus on breathing so you don't strain so hard.

    All the time. I do not stand up immediately after finishing a set. I take a knee or rest on something until my BP has a chance to stabilize. I have never blacked out....but I am pretty sure I would if I did not take these precautions.

    It is a very common thing if you are straining hard enough.

    This x2....stand up slowly, espeacially when maxing on deadlifts. I take a seat afterward. Don't end up on youtube bc you stood up fast and then passed out....I think everyones seen those vids. lol

    It's not a rare thing - there have been more than a few people pass out during a max deadlift. Can be due to inadvertently holding your breath but those with blood pressure that is on the low side can get this. Sometimes I see stars after standing up after sitting for a while. Blood sugar can affect it too. Google orthostatic hypotension.

    I'm glad to hear this. I always take a knee or just sit in the floor until the crazy lights stop flashing. It usually lasts for a few seconds.

    Happens every time. It used to be worse until I learned to breath and relax. Now I make sure to sit after the set. If I don't sit I probably be laying down against my will.
    Small attainable goals are magical.

    A good friend of mine used to powerlift with us in college. He'd pass out after nearly every heavy dead. We'd stand close and grab him after his lift. He had high blood pressure and it would spike when lifting. Not the smartest thing to do but what are you going to tell 18-20 yo guys? LOL

    Of all places, the freaking dumbbell rack.

    Happens to me every time I go 'heavy.' Not passing out, just the seeing stars. Usually just lean back on the wall for a few seconds, but after seeing the other responses I might stay down until back to normal.

    This used to happen to me on heavy leg days. Usually when repping squats in the 405+ range. I've never been too concerned about it myself as I return to normal in a 10-15 seconds. As some have mentioned I'd attribute it to a sudden spike in blood pressure as my eyes would tend to get extremely bloodshot at the same time. I just grab the rack and wait for it to pass.

    And it feels great! I began deadlifting a year ago and weights that 6 months ago were a huge triumph are now barely even warm-ups.

Blood sugar can affect it too. Google orthostatic hypotension.
    Me too. That can also happen to me if I twist my head the right way in the shower.

    i,d say better check your blood pressure. this happened to me once i was cutting down on salt. but thats just me, in your case if youre not sure what is the cause better get a medic check.
