Recently, I've started getting headaches mainly after leg-pressing on the machine. They used to be pretty short and only last a few minutes, but they got worse and now they last for the full work-out + a few hours after I leave the gym. Has anyone experienced this before? Is there anything I can do about it?
Like squats, leg press is one of those exercises where you may see stars if your blood circulation is bad, you are dehydrated, or you are not breathing correctly. If it is none of that, it could just be benign exertion headaches.
Whatever it is, I would see a doctor immediately. Not to scare you, but if you have an underlying condition then doing leg presses is just asking for an aneurysm. Better to get an MRI then be sorry.
