Seriously I feel like a junkie getting high when lifting, esp heavy
I totally know about the rush - I used to get this from running, but haven't noticed it much from lifting. Maybe I need to get to the next level. I used to lift heavier - 6-8 reps to exhaustion, now I am around 8-12 reps. I also work out at home so I don't want to end up trapped under a bar so I don't go quite as hard as I could with a spot!!! lol
