Increases in strength with Pistol Shots.

Post by Kenny Croxdale » Tue Oct 14, 2008 9:37 am

Here's something from the "strange but true" catagory.

Research Update

Increases in strength have been shown when a subject shouts during exertion, or if a pistol is fired near the subject shortly before the test procedure

Adrenaline?

The 'fight or flight' element?

I would think that it would help getting everything to fire at once, improving starting power. It would be more of a synchronization thing.

This is a service that gyms could offer. Trainers would walk around, and instead of warning of the dangers of squatting past perpendicular, they'd just discharge firearms at rendom times. More helpful to the clients, more fun for the trainers.

Would gym members be alowed to return fire?

Well, the trainers would fire their guns, and the lifters would pump their gunz.
