6 Amazing Things Our Bodies Can Do

  • 2 of 7


1. Become Super Strong.

You can do arm curls until you’re blue in the face and you’ll never match the incredible strength some people gain — seemingly out of nowhere — in the face of extreme danger. There are several famous reports of people lifting cars and other heavy objects to free loved ones, even strangers. It may seem impossible, but the physiology backs it up.  When you experience or witness a dangerous situation, your adrenaline rushes. Adrenaline, in turn, leads your heart to race and the level oxygen that flows to your muscles increases. Your body is physically capable of performing these incredible feats of strength, but sometimes it takes a life-threatening situation for our bodies to turn us into superheroes.

Number 5 really works. Not sure if it's wise to cough while getting an injection, the doctor might miss :)
