  • Hemorrhoid Prevention

    A month and a half ago I cut out squatting and deadlifting in order to recover from internal hemorrhoids. Now that the bleeding has almost completely gone away, I'm going to reintroduce squats and deadlifts to my routine. Are there any preventative measures I can take to prevent these hemorrhoids from being exacerbated through squats and deadlifts? Would not wearing a belt help? In my mind, it would reduce the amount of internal pressure created from bracing, but it's just speculation. I am a 20y/o male, 180lbs, and eat sufficient amounts of fiber. Thank you.

    There probably isn't much to do from a training standpoint here. While you can certainly try training without a belt, I have no evidence to support such an approach outside of pure hypothesis, as you noted.

      Could you see the hemorrhoids themselves progressing into something malignant?

      "Malignancy" generally means cancer, so no.

      Excuse my ignorance. I meant something harmful to my health.

    Also no- outside of requiring a surgical intervention that is, likely, unrelated to resistance training levels.
