Although it may not seems so, this topic is directly related to fitness, and not just health.
If you squat regularly (and if aren’t, you should), you may know what I’m talking about. Well, there is no doubt that squatting is good for building your mass, strength and developing your quads and hamstrings, but heavy squatting usually isn’t beneficial for your hemorrhoids. Of course, this is not only related to squats but heavy lifting in general. So hemorrhoids are a common topic in many body building forums.
If you’re lifting heavy weights and have a problems with hemorrhoids you should take care. When you’re lifting weights, squeeze your glutes and don’t tense your colon. I think that working on glute activation type dynamic warm-ups (bird dogs, side steps with elastic bands etc.) and squeezing your glute muscles when lifting (and not the colon) should help.
If you already suffer from hemorrhoids you could also try some of the natural remedies available.
Recently I stumbled upon a free report on alternative digestive remedies.
Some topics that this free report covers:
– Avoid 4 dieting mistakes made by hemorrhoid sufferers that makes the symptoms even worse … no one told you this before and it’s not what they say…. I’ll bust the myth and you’ll never think the same again.
– What exactly is a hemorrhoid and the true root causes? See this alternative explanation that may shock and even astonish you.
– Why one certain type of exercise can harm your progress on hemorrhoids. Avoid this.
– The 2 real reasons why we get hemorrhoids, and how you’ve been virtually tricked by them again. Fiber, water, and exercise are not enough to cure this naturally…. not to mention the severe cases.
Common causes of hemorrhoids:
1. Dry stool or constipation – this is said to cause anal irritation and straining during bowel movements. Through repeated irritation, it causes the veins in the walls to stretch and thus the hemorrhoid develops.
2. Excessive stress – this causes the blood pressure in the anal area to concentrate and develop swelling over time. Combined with a force like anal irritation, it causes hemorrhoids.
3. Pregnancy (for women only) – this is the same principle taught as the constipation theory.
4. Excessive consumption of alcohol or caffeine – this is said to cause the dehydration of your body and thus creates the issue of rectal irritation from a force.
