    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.

    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!
