Can a stroke or a brain aneurysm from dead lifting or weightlifting?

Can increase risk. . See this article -http://online.Wsj.Com/public/resources/documents/hb2.Htm. Wsj.Com fears mount over hoisting heavy weights.
Rare but. When weightlifting, most practitioners employ a valsalva like straining, which can elevate intracranial pressure transiently. The aneurysm is not caused by this activity but if present and large, can be promoted to rupture. Rare, but have seen it happen without warning signs.

Aneurysms & Stroke. An aneurysm is the result of a weakened blood vessel wall which causes the vessel to expand to an abnormal size. When it gets big enough it has the potential to rupture. If it's a brain aneurysm, then it can rupture and cause bleeding into the brain. A stroke is cellular death within the brain which can cause a variety of neurological problems. Aneurysms don't necessarily produce any symptoms. Read more...

Bad idea. Having taken care of 4 patients with head bleeds just this weekend who have fallen on blood thinners, i think it is a really bad idea for people who frequently fall to be on blood thinners, especially the newer ones that have no known reversal agent.
