I was wondering if any of you had any links to articles about how intense lifting might effect the brain. Personal experience and suggestions are welcome aswell.
Yesterday I did some pretty heavy deadlifting followed by some other back work. I went home took it easy and ate well. I went to sleep got a good 8.5 hours of sleep(I may have needed more). Then today I wake up and go to organic chem class. For the most part the class has been flowing and making sense but today I just couldnt maintain focus. I realize I was probably just fatigued but I wonder if there was more to it.
I know that blood pressure can rise signifcantly when lifting. I worry that this may effect my bain.
Do many of you take time off from intense lifting when takeing serious courses?
