Whereabouts in the recovery do you blackout?

The intra-abdominal pressure caused from the Valsalva maneuver in heavy lifting can temporarily restrict blood flow to the brain. Try letting out a little of your breath near the top on the way up to relieve the pressure slightly. Obviously don't let out a large amount of air as you still need plenty of pressure in there, just let a little bit of air exhale while maintaining pressure.
