    Bleeding nose concern during and after deadlift

    Attempted 1rm deadlift Two days ago half way up the lift o started bleeding from my nose and starts dripping out my nose

    After the lift on a lay pulldown I cough up blood like a lot

    I wake up two day’s after with a nose bleed it was literally the most random thing
    Is this concerning?

    Powerlifters have had bloody noses when hitting very high 1RMs in squats and deadlifts. The coughing up a lot of blood is far more concerning. I would consider seeing a doctor and at least talking to them about it.

    Agree with above, nosebleed is less concerning than coughing up a lot of blood. See a doctor.

    If it were just nosebleeds incl. waking up with a nosebleed, consider using a humidifier while you sleep or turning the AC off at night if you leave it running.

    Hopefully the coughing up blood is just a nosebleed that trickled down your throat.

    Most sensible thing would be to see a doctor if it happens again.

    It's from a rush of blood to the head - if you have weak blood vessels in the nose, they can start bleeding. Sometimes the doctor can do something about this.

    As said above, it is quite possible you just swallow some blood, or had some blood go down your airway a bit and then you coughed it up. If it's a one-time thing I would not worry about that further. If it continues to happen that would be more concerning. Bright red blood is less worrisome than pink frothy blood from a lung standpoint. You can actually try to put Vaseline on the inside of your nostrils twice a day for a couple of weeks, that may help with your nosebleeds. I would also wait a few days before doing anything that requires a significant Valsalva maneuver to let things heal up before you put a lot of pressure in your head again.

    I've never had it happen but I'm not surprised it could on a max effort deadlift.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.

    The blood pressure certainly goes up when attempting or working with heavy weight.
    Bursting a small blood vessel isn't a common everyday thing but it can happen.
    Weather can play a role also.
    In dryer weather these things can happen.
    I would be concerned if you have continued bleeding but if keep messing with it won't heal up.
    A piece of tissue or gauze in the nostril will help stop it .
    If it doesn't seek medical arise from a professional.

    Seems to have calmed down but reluctant to use them smelling salts again

    If it were me, i'd be concerned. I'd also consider one of two approaches:

    A) Laying off 1rms and keeping to trebles at the least for a goodly while.
    B) Taking the opposite approach and doing singles a lot in order to build a tolerance to that kind of Herculean effort.

    Look at it this way - now no one can deny your commitment to the lift!

    I don't think it would be possible to build up tolerance to nosebleeds, at least I don't recall ever reading anything to indicate you can thicken your epithelial lining via transient very high blood pressure. I'm not sure if it's be able to cause physiologic changes to blood vessels to make them more resistant to nosebleeds.

    I will say if this continues to be a big problem one consideration is seeing an ear-nose-throat doctor for consideration of cautery of any vessels they see; that could stop the problem potentially.
