Is it normal for your neck to feel swollen after a workout at the gym. When I pull weights that are quite heavy my neck feels like its bulging what with veins and the weight affecting this. I have just started out so do you think maybe the weight I am using is too heavy for me to start with or is this normal. Even when I am just doing sit-ups my neck feels like its bulging and then I feel I jave something in the way in my neck area.
Also is it possible too when using heavy weight to build muscle inside close to the heart then causing swelling close to the heart etc. I am worried about the consequences when using heavy weights. I am quite slim and weigh 54 kilos and 5ft 2in tall. Am I just worrying over nothing.
Thanks guys for any input.
