Thanks Sam!

Yeah one to John Holland:

I was doing squats the other day, 3 sets, 10 reps, 160, 170, and 180 pounds for the three sets. I did the first and second fine, but when I got to the third, I got about 6 reps in, and my fucking head started to pound, I mean like an awful, painful headache. I took an aspirin, and it took a few hours to go away.

Needless to say I do squat thrusts with dumbbells instead for that muscle group, but I actually feel more comfortable doing squats with an olympic bar instead (albeit the powerful headaches).

Has anyone ever experienced this, with any exercise (namely for legs) ?
