    Anyone feel like they're high after lifting? I did bi's and tri's today. Bad idea. I can't flex. I can't shift my car. I can't wipe my ass. I can't even do tri extensions with a small glass. It's hilarious. I'm even getting the munchies now :rofl:

    i've never been high, but i've worked to the point of absolute exhaustion before. it wasn't real lifting but i used to have one of those shitty lil barbells and some weights and loading probably 50 pounds total on it. i proceeded to do 100 squats infront of the TV. i felt pretty decent doing them all, but then i walked across the house and was like, sinking down to parallel to floor (like bending your knees to parallel during squat) cause i couldn't hold myself up. was the craziest feeling ever.

    only when i had first started out lifting and got really sore, or when i overtrain myself.
    i still trip balls if i ever go on a treadmill though, god i love the after effect.

    When I go really heavy on squats and deadlifts I enter a euphoric state....not lightheaded or tunnel vision I just feel really damn good, then I try to walk and fall over and lay on the ground with a huge grin on my face.

    Only ever happened to me when I ran more than 5 miles.

    I do become quite happy whenever I add more weight to my squat though.

    A study was done about a year or two ago indicating that the chemical interaction involved in a "runner's high" is more similar to THC and not endorphines as was previously thought.

    Here is a snippet- so it is still speculation at this point.

    the feeling you get after lifting is NOTHING like being high. in fact, they're pretty much opposite

    It feels the same to me, with the exception that exercises induced highs are a lot more pleasent.

    My leg fell asleep the other day while I was sitting at the computer and I didn't realize it. I stood up on my left then stepped to my right and fell backwards into a trash can. Needless to say, my roommate, his girlfriend and my other friend all sat and laughed while I sat there helpless and unable to get up.:squint:
