Red Spots Around EYES!!!

I have red spots on my top eyelids, and under my lower left eye it looks like a black eye but only red. I did HSPU yesterday, I think that is the cause yesterday I could feel pressure where the spots are. Every time i strain while doing HSPU or Planche Training I get these spots in the exact same patterns!!

Usually goes away with more practice

Albeit if you're worried then talk to a doc

Re: Red Spots Around EYES!!!

It's called petechiae. It's frequently caused by heavy workloads when you use the Valsalva excessively. It may help if you work your core strength and your HSPU form.

We have had a few members get this after the first time trying handstands after many years of not being inverted. It goes away in a fed days and does not seem to reoccur once you adapt. Just some burst capillaries from the pressure, methinks.
