    epinephrine pen.. a lot of people carry them if they have severe allergies to bees, etc.. its how you come back from going into anaphylactic shock --

    epinephrine is synthetic adrenaline.

    It makes you an animal, it's the same thing as fight or flight(where mothers have lifted up cars to save their children), You'll have superhuman strength for a short period of time but you run the risk of heart attack or stroke right then and there!!

    Yeah but you run an equally high risk anytime you put your body extreme conditions.

    Even I'm too scared for that!! I do have one and I have thought about it. I think it would only be good for deadlifting.

    Well, I don't think that when I squatted 1003 that I was at as high of a risk as shooting up epinephrin.
