It's not uncommon during heavy squats and deadlifts to get lightheaded and some people even pass out (yikes!). Some suggestions I've encountered and executed are:

1) Make sure you are well hydrated before your workout
2) Do fewer reps (less than 10, especially for deads)
3) Do deads/squats a little more frequently (and maybe less intensely) to get your body acclimated with this type of load
4) Take a second to pause, breathe and reset after each rep. Don't hold your breath throughout the entire set or through several reps.

I had a tough work out today, where I felt quite bad afterwards until I ate something, suggesting that I had let my blood sugar get to low. But the really strange thing to me, was after my deadlifts, I was standing and recovering, and all of the sudden all of the noise in my gym dulled considerably. I could barely hear the radio playing, and the noise of the machines went from a constant noise to a dull whisper.

Has anyone else experienced this? It went back to normal after a few minutes, as suddenly as it started.
