    Question Can exercise make you aggressive?

    Believe it or not, I'm pretty mild mannered IRL

    Whenever people did things, I'd bite it back, maybe seethe inwardly but generally, do nothing. Until a few weeks ago. . now I'm kicking people's arses as soon as they mess with me. Once for THAT gym guy, and twice for my PT. It's not just my actions that surprise me but the fact that I actually *feel* anger.

    I've had several bouts of depression over the years and my self esteem was, for the most part, non existent. I haven't made any conscious decisions to change my attitude but it seems to have changed anyway.

    Could changes in diet and excercise make that much of a difference? Nothing else in my lifestyle has changed.

    Actually, prior to starting bb-ing, I was a very aggressive, first-ball-puncher type that would snarl and growl and attack without any warning.

    Now, with all my extra energy and negative energy conveyed to those gorgeous pieces of iron in the gym, I'm a calmer, more balanced and alltogether more pleasurable person to be around.

    I do agree it's a self-confidence issue. There are two typical reaction to low self confidence/esteem: aggression and retreat. I think that, generally, bb-ing increases ones self confidence and self esteem, and it manifests differently in different people: those that were aggressive because of low self esteem turn calmer, and those that retreated turn more open and aggressive.

    As for "aggression" itself, I think other people percieve bb-ers as aggressive by feeling threatened by their size and looks.

    WEll, low blood sugar makes you pretty agressive, due to the adrenaline that your body releases to keep you going (My sister has hypoglycaemia, and she was a scary 1 year old, banging her head against the wall because of low blood sugar). And I found out that starting the WSBsystem made me slightly more irritable for the first couple of weeks.

    And for you comment that you were now able to feel the anger.. I guess it has to do with allowing that agression, or even being able to produce it instantly. I found out that people are more intimidated by me (unrightfully so, btw) since they know how much I lift. I guess that that gives me the confidence to let go at times.

    Being in a calorie deficit for an extended period of time can definitely do it. I have mood swings where it doesn't take much to set me off. Not sure if you are cutting or not though.

    exercise keeps me sane

    actually, for me playing soccer is an awesome way I get my aggression out without getting into (too much)trouble

    like someone said, I think it has to do with being more confident about yourself.
    My Events:
    1. Tour de Prairie Century. bike ride--June-07
    I DID IT....100miles of road...3500ft total gain/loss...on my mountain bike FTW!
    2. Mountain Madness 1/2 marathon--July/07
    Done,time sucked..but I wasn't last *helpful tip: not good to do sprint intervals day b-4 1/2 marathon.


    Next up:
    3. Mt. Werner 5mi vertical (2,180ft) run Aug/07
    4. Jelm Mountain 11mi run--Sept/07 (I WILL conquer the mountain this year!)

    When I was going through depression, my doc had me on zoloft but said the most important and helpful thing I could possibly do for myself was exercise (there is a history that goes along with this story that explains why I pretty much quit going to the gym in the first place... ). Physical activity helps balance the same brain chemicals docs prescribe little pills for.

    The zoloft had some side effects I didn't like so I quit taking it. One side good side effect was it made it difficult for me to sleep or just sit doing nothing, so by the time I got off of it, I was wasting all that nervous energy away at the gym.

    When I was depressed, I was somehow incapable of action. Pretty much any action. I went through the motions of everything. I was motivated to do a good job at nothing...including expressing myself.

    I'm different when I'm not depressed, of course. I AM a quiet person by nature. I don't like drama. But if I feel it is important to speak my mind, I will. When I was no longer depressed, I quit letting things go (important things) that I would have previously let slide by. And even though I don't like to cause a stir, I was a happier person for that, too.

    I don't think that exercise makes you aggressive. But I do think that coming out of depression (with exercise, in this case) might make you more yourself...the self you knew before depression. Being able to stand up for yourself again, maybe "assertive" would be a better word?

    Of course, if you've looked back and feel more like your snapping at people for no good reason...that is more aggressive behavior and you might want to work on that. LOL But if you're really just standing up for yourself, it looks like exercise may have done you a great deal of good.

    Absolutely - I am a rabid beast when I'm hungry. Lifting actually puts me into a state of zen-like calm and focus. But if I haven't gotten enough carbs before I work out, all bets are off when I crash.

    Also, about feeling things - depression makes you so numb. Exercise is a great antidepressant, so you might be going through experiencing normal up/downs that feel very extreme to you. As Amanda said so well, you kind of have to get to know yourself again.

    Hey MissThing, it sounds like you're experiencing what it feels like to be true to yourself. You're no longer being a doormat, and quickly nipping signs of disrespect in the bud. This may feel "aggressive" because it's the exact opposite of how you'd normally respond, but it sounds like healthy assertiveness to me. There is a big difference.

    I've walked in these same shoes(i could tell you some stories)...so I'd bet you've tamed your personality, voice, etc, over the years(without realizing it) to avoid rocking the boat. The stronger you become on the inside, the more that will change. I've learned that aggressive people, are actually insecure and fearful...don't let the outer image fool you. So it's a good sign you're concerned with having balance.

    Passivity and Aggression are both unbalanced extremes...just different ends of the spectrum!!

    To answer your question: Consistent training towards a lifestyle change, improves confidence, because you now realize transforming your mind and body was always under YOUR control, which means you're capable of so much more. Also, you're no longer lieing to yourself by saying you'll stick to a diet, or will reach unreasonable expectations, but are now setting realistic goals and accomplishing them. Honest self-reflection is one of the most empowering things anyone can do. Stay strong!

    I've never had aggression problems when working out, but I do get the low-blood sugar grumpies every now and again.

    My hubby gets the low-blood sugar grumpies as well, and there are several products out there that made him SUCH a jerk (which IS NOT the norm for him). Let's just say, he's not allowed to buy those anymore because they caused such strange mood swings. :P Those products: Anything with ephedra, androstat.

    I think it's confidence, too. I know that I've become more confident since hitting the iron!

    I get mega-pissy when dieting for shows, the final 6 weeks.

    In the gym, don't talk to me unless you need a spot or ask if I'm using a certain piece of equipment. When I train I'm in a zone and it's best to leave me alone. Hey headphones are a clue. LOL

    I tend to feel alive and giddy after my workouts. (like I can go out and conquer the world with a smile on my face!) It's when I don't workout that I feel sluggish, grumpy and bloated.

    Could be that you're experiencing an increase in testosterone production from the exercise? (Do you by chance have PCOS? I do- HIGH testosterone in my case... At certain points in my cycle, I'm ready to pound anyone into the ground who even looks at me sideways LOL! )

    I don't have PCOS but I did wonder about testosterone etc. I think I just had duller moods and emotions previously.
    LIFT. EAT. REST. REPEAT.
