    Adrenaline has catabolic effects... Interesting...

    So I'm reading about anabolism/catabolism on wikipedia: and find this
    # Classic anabolic hormones include

    * Growth hormone
    * IGF1 and other insulin-like growth factors
    * Insulin
    * Testosterone
    * Estrogen

    # Classic catabolic hormones include

    * Cortisol
    * Glucagon
    * Adrenalin and other catecholamines
    * Cytokines
    Adrenalin is catabolic? Makes sense scientifically though. I think I'm gonna think twice about slamming on the gas and flipping a guy next to me at the red light

    Do you guys/gals think it has a very significant impact?

    If you're stressed out all the time, it's going to really hurt your gains - no doubt about it.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
