If the eye hemorrhages again, well, it is what it is. At least I tried and can say I never gave up.
That's possible, maybe a good thing to note different tweaks that you try and watch and wait for 48hrs to see if anything untoward occurs; when we have set health issues to work around, it's not as simple as "do exercise A or B" we have to monitor small details.

For example, I tried the laying down lat raise (in one of the threads on the forum) with a really light weight, the next day I could have gladly chopped off both my hands from just above the wrists, they were hell all the way down to my fingertips for a few hours...and yet, the barbell twist, with a much heavier load, gave me no issues at all.

Backbends increase the pressure in the chest and are contraindicated for people with high blood pressure, the movement of the head backwards out of neutral alignment may just have a similar effect (though I couldn't say for certain) and in your case may have more of a profound effect than with others...for me, I'd get more migraines, so it does make a difference with the positioning of the head.


You'll get there!

Been on my mind a lot, and I had a thought(yes not my strong suit)! If you can't do as much lifting or heavy lifting, have you ever considered becoming a coach? You have a great attitude, your honest and helpful, lots of knowledge, and have that leader/father type thing going on. As I said its just a thought, but I think you'd be fantastic at it, and you could still be involved with the sport you love. Stay strong Super Jim!

Is it just the intensity that is the problem? Can you lift for reps without issues?

Thanks Randy - it means alot to me.

Good idea Babs! Now that I think of it, I did notice my vision was very slightly blurred at the end of the RDL's, but not enough for me to think about it. It is possible the hemorrhage started then and then burst over night.

I will start keeping track of the little things I change for sure!

That is definitely a possibility Jay, but I imagine I would have to become a CPT first. The program here is 2 years full time. I think I will bring this up with Brian, the Crew leader, who is a CPT and obviously a pretty good coach.

Thanks Gabe. I am slowly coming to terms that I will be grateful to lift anything any style at this point. No lifting at all scares me and is not an option.

It most definitely could be OR & Steve. At this point, it could be anything, and I am willing to try anything.

By lifting without intensity, do you mean to say, load 135 on the bar for a squat and do just do say, 6 reps, and stop there?

If you have something in mind, I am definitely willing to try it.

Now mind you that I have limited experience with this. . .

I am currently experimenting with higher reps and it's effect on building muscle, and therefore building greater strength capacity. Bigger muscles should be capable of greater strength.

Another approach that has caught my interest is keeping the load at a moderate intensity (say 80%) and work on becoming more powerful with it over time. Think about moving the same load more explosively, as it becomes easier have you not gotten stronger?

Just a couple of ideas rattling around in my brain. . .

Damn it Jim! I really hated reading all that! I know if there is a way to continue lifting you will be the one to find it! There is no one more dedicated or hard headed than you And I can think of at least 2 pretty good reasons to get out of bed every morning, your beautiful wife and daughter
Stay strong and a solution will present itself Jim!!

I have a good feeling you will still be able to hit the weights down the road. Don't discount it. With all the help you have here you will find a wayI also second Jay's idea. I think you would really make an excellent coachSomething to consider anyways.
