    I used to see this when I'd hit weights really hard about a year ago, but I had a great shoulder workout on Friday and have a line of popped blood vessels along the tops of my delts across my traps. anyone else ever experience this?

    I get that on my left biceps sometimes. No big deal. It eventually works itself out.

    If I ever do calf raises I get bruises along my shoulders. just consider them war wounds

    I think you're ok as long as they're not popping in your head.

    I burst a few blood vessels in my eyes when I was a trumpet player... spent quite a while looking like I had spent a major night on the turps... at 15 years old

    sorry to be rude...

    looking at the guys responding, they dont seem to work out much.

    popping blood vessles? um that doesnt sound normal for vessles to pop buddy. I could be wrong but i cant recall any vessle being popped from working out.

    that's just because of the shoulder pads on the machine icon_razz.gif

    I've never popped a blood vessel, though I have seen a guy pop one in the side of his face while lifting WAY more than he needed to be. If it'd been inside his brain it would've killed him (fucking dumbass). He splattered his spotter and got it all over the wall next to the power rack.

    If you're blowing blood vessels, you're cranking your blood pressure to dangerously high levels and you need to back the hell off before you cause serious problems.

    that just sounds gross... popping a blood vessel.

    POP is an ugly word.

    what if it's in the context of "shall I POP it in?"
