Part 2: Runner’s High versus Lifter’s High
“I come to a point where my body is almost dead. My mind has to take leadership. When it is very hard there is a war going on between the body and the mind. If my body wins, I will have to give up; if my mind wins, I will continue. At that time I feel that I stay outside of my body. It is as if I see my body in front of me; my mind commands and my body follows. This is a very special feeling, which I like very much. . . It is a very beautiful feeling and the only time I experience my personality separate from my body, as two different things.”- Yiannis Kouros (In Ultrarunning magazine March 1990)
If you are reading this you probably already have a passion for working out, training, lifting weights or the like. I do not need to convince you that having some alone time with a barbell and some rusty weights can really clear your head and centralize your goals and mindset. But how many have experienced the difference between a runner’s “high” and a lifter’s “high”? In this article I hope to give an overview of the differences and advantages of each. By the end we should see that running, or substitutable form of cardio, would only help to better our lives and well being.

I’m going to call it straight off the bat – I absolutely despise cardio. That being said, given the number of strongman/powerlifters/strong mofo’s who have died an early death due to “unknown heart conditions”, I decided that after competing at GPC Worlds in Las Vegas this year I’d step my cardio game up purely for cardiovascular health reasons. This has had a few awesome side-effects that I was not expecting:

“I don’t want to be an icon; I want to be an idea. I want to represent an idea, I want to represent possibilities, I want to represent magic. That you are in a universe where two plus two equals four. Two plus two only equals four if you accept that two plus two equals four. Two plus two is going to be what I want it to be!” –Will Smith
Strongman, a sport where you have to be, well, strong! Great strongmen usually have a strong mindset, strong grasp on balance in life and strong amount of confidence (sometimes to a fault) of being invincible. How else can you put a thousand pounds on your back and sprint with it without being a little delusional? Will Smith would agree.
