Definitly, i think its endorphins or dopamine, either way its muy bueno.

shhhhh don't tell anyone or the gov't will try and take away are squats and deads because they'll report its giving kids a high and killing them!
Really though i love the feeling i get after squats and deadlifts

Sq's kinda suck but they still make me feel good.Deads however make me feel like a big ass silverback!Thats how I picture myself when I'm done.Sometimes I run and smack up against the glass of the room that our dead lift platform is in while screaming......Then I walk back to the platform on all fours with lats spread wide!!!

Heck Yeah, any heavy total body movement gives me that feeling - you're dead tired, but in the best mood you've had all week. I like to sit back in the sauna and enjoy the high in it fullness.

Stick with it and it should go away.I used to get it too but it seemed after doing 20 rep sq's for a wfile the sickness went away and hasn't come back.

I feel like breathing heavily and falling asleep when I do heavy squats, deads, or olympic lifts.

I get that sometimes too.Almost like a wanting to pass out tired.Not from blacking out but just feeling completely drained.Then if I have the day off,I lay down and can't take a nap for nothing!
