Check your blood pressure. make sure to breathe during sets.

Nosebleeds after or during heavy lifts is blood pressure pure and simple. Your blood pressure is too high. Get it tested (super easy) and keep in mind that it will spike much higher during a very heavy lift.
Systolic (upper number) BP is over 120 consider lowering it. If it is over 140, that's WAY too high.
If your diastolic(lower number) BP is over 80, you should consider lowering it. If it is over 90, that's again WAY too high.

As far as I know, there are only 2 things which can help cause a nosebleed on a heavy lift. One is high bp like everyone has been sayin. the other thoug is anything that thins yur blood. Aspirin, celery seeds, hathorn berries, or any other thing that thins your blood. Still probably aint gonna happen without high bp though.

It's not uncommon to get nose bleeds or to get blood shot eyes when lifting heavy, but I would get you B.P. checked to be on the safe side.
