I lift weights and often strain. Can lifting heavy weight cause a problem??
Xarelto effects clotting not blood thinning. I can only say none impact and no rugby/football would be best. Pumping iron on a machine or free weights should be safe as long as no muscle tearing. For me newer rowing machines are great and using machine station for humping is better. Less chance of me dropping a barbell or dumb bell on me. As far as running and team sports the problem is high chance of impact injuries. Even with a helmet on I wouldn't want to get a head bang/trauma while on Xarelto. Brain bleed.
