    I recommend GOMAD; that will take care of the straining issue in a hurry.

    It may be bad for you, but not for me. Not everyone can handle it. To be honest, if I was lactose intolerant, I think I'd kill myself. Not that I do GOMAD anymore.

    Enlighten me.

    I ran GOMAD for about a month or so. I gained about 8kg in bodyweight without a drastic increase in fat. And my squat 5RM went up by about 25kg, and my deadlift 5RM went up by about 40kg. I'm not lactose intolerant so I had no issues there.

    I'm still al... wait let me check... yeah, I'm still alive.

    Why is it bad? Has anyone ever died from GOMAD? Has anyone ever lost weight and gotten weaker on GOMAD? Are you terrified of body fat?

    "Too much" IS, by definition "bad for you". Well done on this profound observation.

    Next you'll start saying something crazy like "too much" masturbation is "bad for you."

    nope didnt sit up too quickly. this wasnt a headrush, it was a sustained visual problem. anyone ever had a migraine? where you see white speckles sometimes? like that but focused
    I've had that a few times. Its kind of trippy. You see extremely tiny, well resolved bright particles whizzing around in your peripheral vision.

    Exactly!

    At the very worst (which still isn't that bad):

    Valsalva retinopathy

    A pathologic syndrome associated with the Valsalva maneuver is Valsalva retinopathy.[13] It presents as preretinal hemorrhage (bleeding in front of the retina) in people with a history of transient increase in the intrathoracic pressure. The bleeding may be associated with a history of heavy lifting, a forceful coughing, straining on the toilet, or vomiting. The bleeding may cause a reduction of vision if it obstructs the visual axis. Patients may also note floaters in their vision. Usually a full recovery of vision is made.
    Nah he'd've had a bloodshot eye.

    The valsalva maneuver is "apparently" what could have killed Elvis - it's also used to "reset" the Aortic pressure or something like that. Dangerous stuff.

    When you've seen it done on an 82year old man with a pacemaker after an operation and he's gone into Cardiac Arrest, yes it it.

    It's also dangerous if you have an aneurysm, but most people don't.

    Anyway, here's an 82 year old man deadlifting 190kg and benchpressing 145kg:





    I guarantee you he used the Valsalva manoeuvre during those lifts, and he has done for his entire lifting lifetime.

    So I was doing weights for the second time since holiday, nothing major, 2x24kg dumbells bench press. Didnt drink heavy on holiday,only one week away

    I sat up and my vision went funny

    My periphery was clear, but my point of focus was all white and speckly, to the point I couldn’t make out what I was looking at ( my face in the mirror for example ). This persisted for quite some time it felt like that.

    I had a coffee two hours before…but apart from that I cant explain it. First time ever!
    This happened to me once after a super intense circuit. I then staggered outside and could barely see, and the light (it wasn't a sunny day) was blinding. I nearly fainted, and several times before that I'd been sick.

    What's the point of neg repping? Honestly. I hope you feel better; either way the Valsalva is not dangerous. Billions of people have used it and have had for thousands and thousands and thousands of years.
