Heavy Squats & Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids affect over 1 million people in the Western world each year. They are much less common in underdeveloped countries, which is likely due to the high-fat, low-fiber diet that is more popular in Westernized countries. This diet is more commonly associated with hemorrhoids because it leads to chronic constipation and straining on the anorectal area. Other activities and conditions that cause strain in this region, such as heavy lifting, can also be associated with hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids result from dilatation and protrusion of blood vessels and tissues into the anal canal. This occurs due to strain on the vascular system and weakness of anatomic support in that area. Hemorrhoids are classified as internal and external based on their anatomy.
The primary symptoms associated with hemorrhoids are bleeding, protrusion of tissue from the anus and mucus discharge from the anus. Hemorrhoidal bleeding is often bright red and appears in the toilet or on the toilet paper after wiping. Internal hemorrhoids are classically not painful, but external hemorrhoids can hurt.
Heavy Squats and Other Risks
Risk factors for developing hemorrhoids are chronic straining at stool, constipation, low-fiber diet, prolonged sitting, pregnancy, obesity and increased age. Since hemorrhoids are exacerbated by factors that cause excessive pressure in the anorectal area, exercises such as heavy squats can increase the risk of developing them as well. You should take caution when performing heavy squats, especially if you have or had hemorrhoids or if you have one of the other risk factors for developing them.
Diagnosis and Treatment
Hemorrhoids are diagnosed by anoscopy, which is direct visualization of the anus. Internal hemorrhoids are graded as follows: first-degree internal hemorrhoids bleed but do not prolapse and are visualized during anoscopy; second-degree internal hemorrhoids protrude with the straining but return when straining ceases; third-degree internal hemorrhoids are constantly prolapsed but easily reduced manually; and fourth-degree internal hemorrhoids cannot be reduced.
Treatment options include surgical excision and various other surgical therapies. Other therapeutic options include warm sitz bath, increased fluid intake to prevent constipation, corticosteroid suppositories to reduce inflammation, and pain-relieving medications or ointments.
- your comments are more hurtful than the hemorrhoiddrgs
- Don't worry, hemorrhoids scars heal with nice smooth pink skin. Trust me, I know.robotron3k
- Not sure why you didn't tighten your core on the lift tho...robotron3k
- when you lift at your maximum weight, your body "falls" on its instincts, or at least its hard to still be conscious about these thingsdrgs
- don't be so anal on your squatspinkfloyd
- I stand corrected, I meant hex rack, much much better for you lifts https://i.pinimg.com…robotron3k
Maybe lube your anus before doing squats?
Are people interested in hearing the details about my hemorrhoid?
I have a thrombosed hemorrhoid, which is basically a blood clot under the skin. Sort of like when you hit one of your fingers, and the nail turns black, only in your ass.
It was only painful the first week, now I do not notice it all. The clot will dissolve by itself within 6 weeks. Absolutely no progress so far. I keep a small mirror by the bed to look at it.
Upvote for more details and pictures.
- Have you considered tattooing legs on it to make it look like a spider, it'd be a great conversation starter...robotron3k
- ^ LOLGuyFawkes
- give it a name.ApeRobot
- I'll call it ApeRobotdrgs
- It could be your ego trying to escape. If not, in future, if anyone asks how it's doing, just say 'swell'BustySaintClaire
- What were you doing to your ass to damage the blood vessels?scarabin
- Heavy squats. Anyway this was 3 years ago, it healed without a tracedrgs
drgs, have you started doing squats again? If so, 5x5 heavy, or for hypertrophy?
- He is too busy certifying spammers on QBNutopian
- I am, for hypertrophy, I'm not going below 10 reps. Usually, its 12-15 reps even. Do it with short pauses and its hard as helldrgs
- I just did 110 kg 5x5 tonight. Benn doing squats progressively for four months, and haven't missed a set yet, and I'm a bit worried about this.Continuity
- Been, not benn. That's a completely different animal.Continuity
- And by 'missed', I actually mean 'failed'.Continuity
- Worried about hemorrhoids? In my case it went away after 1 month by itself with no trace, but yeah, not my favorite gym injurydrgs
- Nah, more worried about serious muscle, tendon, or bone injuries the heavier I go.Continuity
- Frankly, 110 ain't a baby weight.Continuity
Here's the thing, drgs:
My right arm (both bis and tris) and my right pec are all stronger than the corresponding muscles on my left side (and I'm left-handed, btw).
However, the bis, tris, and pec on the left side are all a bit bigger and better shaped/developed than on the right side.
WTF, man? What do I do about this?
- Switch hands when mastrubatingdrgs
- But no, seriously, it's fucking annoying.Continuity
- Dumbbells instead of barbells + do high and low rep ranges, go outside of the normal 8-10 rep sets
- ^Last of the 3 here, I do same 4 cycles in 4 weeksdrgs
- 1 week heavy 4-6 rep load, 2nd week light 15 reps, then normal, last week mixeddrgs
- Hmmm. What I normally do is a mix. Barbells for 4-6 reps, dumbells for 8-12, mostly compounds, with a bit of isolation.Continuity
- Your question sounded familiar
- Anyway, I think its normal, Im the same (but mirrored), but maybe not as bad to actually care about itdrgs
- It's probably worse in my mind. I'm aware of it, so it bugs me.Continuity
Might just as well, it's my thread
