I’m sure you’ve heard of incidents when someone was able to lift a car, a fallen tree, or slabs of concrete during an emergency. Most of the time, humans suddenly display feats of strength when they’re in life-or-death situations.
The hormone that’s responsible for the surge of power is called Adrenaline. Also known as epinephrine, it is a by-product of the adrenal glands and medulla oblongata. When released, it increases blood flow to muscles, which causes hyperdrive on sweat glands and the beating of the heart.
When we are faced with stressful situations, we experience the Fight-or-Flight response. Our brain triggers Adrenaline to re-direct blood into major muscle groups. It also suppresses pain. This gives us the power to perform tasks that we cannot in our normal state.
The term “adrenaline rush” came from what we feel when we face a dangerous or stressful situation. With Adrenaline, we can lift heavy objects, run faster, and function even when injured or in pain. We also have heightened awareness that provides brief moments of clarity to respond better in stressful situations.
So, how does one get a little adrenaline rush to get through a difficult task? One way is to exercise. When people say, “no pain, no gain,” one of the gains that they are talking about is having an adrenaline course through your body after a good workout.
Pushing your body to the limit physically triggers Adrenaline and lets you get the power you need to get through tasks for the day. It’s true; here’s a quick video of how Adrenaline makes people stronger. You can also watch this 2-minute video that’s both cute and informative!
