    When you do the weightlifting, you have to spend a lot of energy which will cause the whole muscles in the body tight. At this time, the eye nerves will be intense, too. That is why you may get the bloodshot in the eyes. However, it will be in temporary. You could get the release after a while for a good rest to wait for the calmness in the body and mind.
