Why are my arms red and splotchy after I lift weights?
after I'm done, my arms become red, but it's only temporarily.
When you lift heavy objects,there is a lot of pressure in out hands.This block the circulation of blood in that area of the skin making it red and splotchy.
from the blood rushing through them
because of your sweat making your skin pourus
Blood rushes to the muscles to carry oxygen and nutrients...even the muscles just under the skin....this redness...
Because your working hard and keep it up.
Maybe you popped some blood vessels. It's called internal bleeding.
