Bodybuilder’s High: Similarly to a runner’s
high, a pump can, according to some experts, cause a wide variety
of hormonal responses, including the release of endorphins and
enkephalins, which are natural painkillers produced in the body.
Not to get into too much physiology or psychology, the pump can
also elicit a pleasurable response in the pleasure center of the
brain, which occurs overtime through the association of
bodybuilding activity and the satisfying pump felt afterwards. The
difference between being pumped up after a workout while in the
gym, and waking up the next morning may be so significant that some
people are shocked at the way they look when pumped up. Like any
other positive outcome of bodybuilding, the pump will only occur if
a number of other training factors are in place, such as proper
nutrition and rest. One very easy way to determine if you are
overtraining is if you notice you are no longer achieving the pump
after your workouts. This can easily be noticed if you are familiar
with the feeling associate with the pump. See also, THE PUMP.
