    working out kills brain cells

    OK not really............................................ ............but lately when working out, after a heavy set that really tires me out I will occasionally do the ****ing stupidest things. Today while doing squats I went to get a drink after a set then I walked up to the wrong squat rack, I stood there and stretched for about a minute,...... then I realized that a different amount of weight was on the bar...........you would think i'd of figured it out then but I thought that someone had taken the weight off (apparantly i was still a little to light headed to think correctly) so I turn around to the guy standing there and say......I've got two more sets and i'll be done..................So he gives me this confused look and points to the other squat rack which i was using....................so needless to say i felt like a complete dumbass.......However on the bright side it was probably the best squat workout I've ever had and I'd gladly be a complete MOron for a while if I improved like thta on every workout.

    I know i can't be the only person that these sorts of things happen to?

    Nah, after a heavy set of anything, I tend to space out slightly, it's nothing out of the ordinary. After my last set of heavy squats I tend to wander aimlessly for about 20 seconds after I finish catching my breath.

    exactly like rambo said you space out for a monent............get light headed.......probably cause you just shocked your body or did something it was not used to or not normal...........after i run about 7-8 miles.....i can barely hold a convo with anyone i'm so out of it........your body just needs to recuperate.......so dont worry........its nothing out of the ordinary

    I guess that explains all the Morons in the world. You'd think they'd be bigger though?

    Wait wut do you mean? What's wrong with that? I've asked people that before. I was doing fly's on the bench press bench, could have used one of the other ones (I mean regular bench, i forget wtf it's called) so I asked the guy if he wanted to do his chest work out, and I moved

    I don't know how you guys can run distance I ran the 100m and 200m, but at 201m I was done. To me I just don't like running long distance. I don't like running in normal life either. If I see a bus ride by me, and it I would either have to run to catch it, or wait another hour for the next one, I will sure as hell be waiting. I refuse to be one of "those" people that run around the city... but maybe that's because I've got nowhere important to be most of the time, or more likely, I don't care about being punctual

    Edit: I even refuse to walk quickly. It must be hanging around all these Samoans, because I've got my "mosy" down pat.

    One time I was doing leg extensions and there was a hottie doing some ab crunch ball thing right across from me, I was getting a nice taint shot and decided to continue to pump out reps while she did this "revealing" crunch work. Well, after about 30 reps, she stops and I go to get up from the machine, take 2 steps, and then crumble as my legs can't hold me up. Almost took the poor girl out, she moved quick though and I was able to firmly plant my face into the floor...

    It has to do with blood flow. There is slightly less blood in the brain.
