Default Blood Clots

So I've come accross some stuff online about exercise and lifting actually causing blood clots.

Its funny, before they we're saying regular exercise prevented them.


Apparently working out can cause immense pressure to the veins of the surrounding muscle, which can cause a clot.

There was a teenager that was doing p90x or something of that nature, and this happened to him.



Freaked me out a little I must say. Always had a fear of DVT. :L

What do you think about that?

Not common.
Most DVTs are from immobility. The only thing I see is if you had one already bad it broke off due to exercise. I would not stress.

"Personal trainer" using P90x ....

DVT is also not what they are talking about. TOS is a rare syndrome and must have been because of his anatomy.


Crazy note. The dad is the head pastor at a big church I attend. I didn't even know about this just that he'd taken leave.

So, that's why they don't like TOS sufferers doing weight training, lucky me

It's clear that they stated it was the underlying cause of the clot, so unless you have TOS, which I doubt you do, stop worrying. To add to this, however, people that do not have TOS (a syndrome which is caused by a variety of things and has a variety of differing degrees of the syndrome within the whole) can develop it due to the build up of muscle around the trap/scapular area etc...it's not uncommon for weight lifters to suffer it due to the pressure on the veins from the enlarged musculature.

Certainly something to watch out for.


I've suffered it for over 20 years but my arms after they go red, blue, then ashen grey, tend to come back to normal within a few minutes...so, I can only assume, I have no clots as yet. The medical profession do ensure I don't take certain medications though, if they are considered to be probable blood clot causing meds, neither do I take any that relieve possible clot formation (not that I want any either).


You're more likely to get DVT from travelling in a plane, Linden.
