    I just started lifting heavy again after only going light high rep for a number of years. All I know is my workouts are paying off. I feel stronger, but also angrier. I used to be able to let most petty things go, but now if someone even looks at me wrong, I feel angry and want to hurt him. I never do, mind you, but i feel myself getting more and more bloodthirsty everyday. NO I AM NOT ON STEROIDS! Anyone else feel this way when they lift heavy? Any tips on what to do to sooth the savage beast?

    Get a colonic and watch the caffeine.

    This was me before I switched to decaf and added more fiber to my diet.

    Guilty, I think whatever you smash in Lawton Oklahoma can only serve to redecorate the place while helping you dissipate energy.

    Peace

    Perhaps you should try (in no particular order)
    1. some herbal tea
    2. a high colonic
    3. going to a firing range
    4. getting out of Lawton

    Felt the same way, granted I was also having some wretched things going on in my life at the time... but whatever. It might be a change in hormone levels.... Its the same idea as a roid rage except without the roids.....


    Green tea helps, believe it or not.

    GG -

    I don't lift heavy anymore, but I think I do know what you are talking about.

    I always felt more agressive after a really hard workout. Some people call it that 'pumped' feeling, 'endorphin rush', 'Runners High', others have different names... it generally refers to feelings of exhilaration brought on by pain, danger, or other forms of stress.

    "...when strenuous exercise takes a person over a threshold that activates endorphin production. Endorphins are released during long, continuous workouts, when the level of intensity is between moderate and high, and breathing is difficult. This also corresponds with the time that muscles use up their stored glycogen. Workouts that are most likely to produce endorphins include running, swimming, cross-country skiing, long distance rowing, bicycling, weight lifting, aerobics, or playing a sport such as basketball, football (soccer), or American football...

    A study in 2004 by Georgia Tech found that runner's high might be caused by the release of another naturally produced chemical, the endocannabinoid anandamide. Anandamide is similar to the active chemical, THC, found in marijuana. The authors suggest that the body produces this chemical to deal with prolonged stress and pain from strenuous exercise, similar to the original theory involving endorphins. However, the release of anandamide was not reported with the cognitive effects of the runner’s high; this suggests that anandamide release may not be significantly related to runner's high." - wikipedia

    I get them frequently, though not as much as when I was younger.

    Did you see the special on 20/20 a couple of nights ago where they addressed "anger" especially by celebrities? They referenced Alec Baldwin and Naomi Campbell. Their conclusion was that anger and narcissism are closely linked! The higher ones opinion of oneself.....the more anger is felt toward dis-respecting fans. I personally think this is all a big "stretch", but perhaps there is a grain of truth there???

    I kinda get what you are saying on the angry psyched up front, does your workout tend to stay full on hard until the end oooerrr icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif

    Maybe towards the end of your routines it would be worth changing the tempo or format as a kind of down time/de conditioning for want of a better word. Havent worded that very well, but kinda ease of the gas with some smaller muscle group work and finish off with some decnt floor work ie abs and then stretching. Use that time almost akin to meditation assessing your work out in your head and I find its a bit like the therapeutic effects of running for defragging the brain

    Well Guilty, with all the progress your making... you are one of the hotter Oklahoma dudes. I suggest you think about all the great progress you have already made. Lots to be happy about.

    JRNU I just think of narcissism as portable love, kind of like my laptop. Also, a narcissist always has someone to love.

    PEACE

    i don't know why buuut I'm thinking it might be hormones?? Have your nuts dropped any? If they are wrapping around the support pole whilst you do your hyperextensions, you might be experiencing abnormal testosterone production, kinda like puberty all over again. Just speculating.

    I guess either jerk your terk or meditate...or both. Either are equally theraputic. Learn to control the beast within.

    When I'm lifting heavy, I notice that I get angry with myself more so than anyone else just because it makes me push myself harder. "C'mon you mother f*cker...you can push it! Don't be such a p*ssy! Two more pumps!"
