I use to train heavy (competed in fitness competitions) and lifted at times more than some dudes and it is not the lifting that is causing that, your body fat may be dropping to low that you may stop your periods and thus have irregular ones such as spotting. It happened to me so I understand how you feel.

I DID!  I later found out that I had PCOS< and my doctor thought that was related, as PCOS reacts and gets worse with weight, so as I lost weight, my body started to change, as did my ovaries, and I was spotting all the time.  Just make sure you aren’t hurting yourself in the workouts, and causing a hernia or anything like that!
