    My girlfriend is having the same problem with her powerlifting training. She breaks blood vessels in her forehead and got a really bad headache last week after training.

    I'm not sure what it is and I am not sure if it's something to be concerned about, but I don't think that it's terribly uncommon. I would consult a doctor if the headaches persist though.

    CC, I have had these same types of pains. To be honest, when that particluar pain comes, I am DONE with the heavy sets! I always get FREAKED out thinking I may have an busted blood vessel in my head and thats not any fun! haha

    Anyone have any more info on this?

    i know exactly what you mean but im not certain what the actual cause is. i was getting them a few years ago when i was powerlifting and they added to the reason why i stopped. i never lift anything that is to heavy for me to get 4 or 5 reps from anymore and the headaches subsided
