"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I marvel at people who say they feel relaxed by exercise. I may feel a temporary release of tension but long term I don't have any positive behavioral changes. I feel morose and Irritable.


Sounds a lot like me. I'm definitely a more mellow fellow during layoffs. The spike in testosterone or maybe being tired from training definitely affects my mood in a negative way.

I only become angry, well, agitated and snappy when i was using a pre workout supplement, id have to "walk it off" for a hour or so after each workout.
This days am more hyper and happy post workout, so ive still to "walk it off" lol.

Wow, you feel angry when you train and morose and irritable as well and you are a trainer? I remember hearing of Gironda yelling and such when guys wouldn?t do just as he said and throwing them out of the gym. A fun environment to workout in , ha ha. It?s not like I see flowers and I?m walking on air after a workout, it just relieves some of the tension. It?s also not permanent , if I was depressed it would come back eventually .

Mr Ents Minger:If you carefully read what I wrote, you'd see I said what you describe as your normal state, just a difference of focus and a use of different words. I thought it was pretty common -- people feeling bad after a HIT session. I was partly wrong.
PS: I no longer train people. When I did they got their money's worth, which most certainly includes treating them respectfully. I am not one of those who allow their moods determine their behavior. If I have a bad mood, I keep it to myself and don't use people as punching bags.

I think some of these people who feel bad after a HIT type workout are the ones that go way beyond what they should do . I keep hearing of people training to the point of exhaustion , passing out, throwing up, feeling bad for days after a workout. It?s pretty obvious they are pushing their body way beyond what is required for growth. They do way to much so they feel miserable. Who wouldn?t get angry and aggressive if that?s what happened every workout.

I always train hard - especially my legs - and I have found from years of experience that I lose my temper much quicker when working out on a steady basis than when I have missed a few workouts. Not sure if I generate more testosterone from the workouts or what - but it is definitely a reality. I do not take any kind of steroids/growth drugs - so no 'roid rage is involved. I get mad at all kinds of things - and sometimes take it out on people.

What is the general consensus of things from people on the forum?

If you chose a gym that you feel supports hard core training it's likely that the people and the environment could affect your mood in that way.

As for temper , I?ve found reading some posts like on the functional training thread raises my temper way more than any workout I?ve ever done even one where I?ve dropped a 50 pound plate on my foot! Ha ha !!

====================================

I can certainly see where that would come into play. Thanks for that insight.

In my case, however, I work out by myself in a carport/garage kind of thing. I make the 'social environment' hard core and intense through my own training.

I do indeed push myself as hard as I can go - certainly to exhaustion. I have not passed out (yet), but have thrown up if I drank too much gatorade and water during a workout.

Training should enhance every aspect of your life ( mind and body ) , anything other than this then you are either doing too much or have an endocrine deficiency.

For me training seems to completely calm me down. I can recall only one time where I had been doing my routines 6 days a week and I did have anger issues then.

However, I'm not so sure if it was completely related to overworking at the gym. Do you have any personal issues that you may be thinking about more while working out?

If you are living life on the clock trying to squeeze a lot in and training is another thing to squeeze into you schedule. Potentially it could be that, any kind of delay, like traffic or a queue, then becomes a bigger deal, and I've even had it where relaxation has to take place in a short time so I was trying to, relax optimally, which is just paradoxical.

==================================

I am very mellowed right after workouts - but that changes after a few hours.

I almost never think about anything except training during my workouts; just think about what I'm going to do next in the workout and what I have already done.

It's the pits to be angry so much of the time.

It does indeed seem like that I 'live life on the clock'; seems like I am always in a squeeze to get things done, that I don't relax much at all - except for a couple of hours after a workout. I don't sleep well either. I feel like a walking time bomb.

Thanks for the feedback.
