    I've been experiencing this fantastic feeling while I'm lifting, It comes when I'm really pushing out that last rep...especially doing chest or quads. I'm in the hardest part of the motion, when I would usually be straining, and all of a sudden my head goes completely clear and I have this feeling of focus and clarity where nothing hurts and I'm completely present in that exact moment.
    It's almost like I step out of my body and am observing myself. Has anybody else had similar experiences?

    Long open water swims (after a mile or so) do something similar for me. You're immersed in this body of water, no one around, just the sound of each breath you take, and the cadence of your stroke. I'll even close my eyes except when I look up to catch my bearing. Its definately a high.

    Dude!!!!! Especially when ever Ive worked out my quads I get that feeling!! I normally do a chinese toilet (sit with my back against the wall with my legs bent 90 degrees to the wall) and hold for 2 minutes- when Im done I collapse to the floor- never felt anything SOOOOO good! icon_twisted.gif
