First, let me be clear: anxiety is a serious mental condition, and if anxiety causes problems in your daily life, I strongly suggest that you see the correct medical health professional. But the type of post-training anxiety I?m talking about is, I think, a little different: it?s not a perpetual state of mind, but rather a pretty predictable sensation that follows the comedown from the endorphin high from lifting heavy dumbells.

It?s obviously not a comfortable sensation. Personally, I feel overstimulated ? my mind races and my body wants to move, but I?m so physically exhausted (from lifting heavy dumbells) that all I can do is sit there and feel miserable. It?s a little like being stuck in traffic after taking a double dose of pre-workout! Of course, everyone experiences anxiety differently. My question, is what to do about it?
