Hemorrhoids and fitness/weight lifting

Hi, I want to ask you two questions, how can one lift weights in the gym without aggrivating hemorrhoids, I surely cannot quit lifting altogether since it's a part of my lifestyle now.

Another question, how come it is said that blood pressure in the anus is not good for hemorrhoids, but people are still suggesting taking hot baths (wich raises blood pressure)

Very good questions.

Doesn't increased blood pressure dilate blood vessels
which makes piles bigger?

Doesn't running/having sex/anytype of exercise also increase blood pressure?

Are hot boths more for short term relief of discomfort/itching/pain rather than long term cure of piles?
