    Where has the Endorphin high gone?


    I'm 50 and have worked out off on on since my 20's. I've been at it religeously for about 5 years. Up until about 40-45, I would get that euphoric endorphin high that we all love.
    It's our post workout reward for busting ass lifting. It's as good a high as any drug I've ever used. And totally natural.

    I can't get that endorphin rush any more. BW is all good. No adrenal fatigue? I work out 5 days a week and do cardio. I can't excercise any harder. But I'm not overtraining.
    No matter what I try I can't get it back.
    I loved that feeling about 15-30 minutes after working out.
    I felt like I could throw my car across the street.

    Anyway, it's probably just old age......Is there anything I've overlooked?

    Try taking two weeks completely off. Then go back and see what happens.

    Taking time off is good for your CNS. I always feel better after taking 2 weeks off and hitting it back up. Also look into ergopharm's amp... it really gives you that endorphin kick.

    instead of two weeks off, consider doing alaternative exercise: hiking, yoga, tennis, basketball, cycling, swimming, pilates, core training, dancing, etc. You might find the novelty rejuvenating. Save the rest for actual sickness and recovery.
