    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    what happens when you don't train?

    Or more in general, what happens to you when you don't work out? I pondered about that when reading the messages http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=30336 , and I thought it may be a good topic for a new thread.

    Do you experience any form of withdrawals when you don't train or work out???

    For me, it's very uncomfortable. I sit on my ass working on a PC all day, and sometimes from home, too. And if I take a week off from working out, my hamstrings cramp, as well as my back (between my shoulder blades) and neck. I try stretching, and that works for a while, but if I don't do any form of exercise for a few days, it becomes very uncomfortable.

    Also, I have a hard time falling sleep in general, and if I don't work out, it's even worse. Perhaps some of it is mental, but I wonder if you guys experience any uncomfortable "side-effects", be it mental or physical if you stop working out or training for a while.

    BTW... is this thread in the right forum????? It's sort of health-related, but it's general stuff as well.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    General stuff = General BS forum, not Bullshido.

    On topic, I become very restless when I miss a few days. I also have trouble sleeping.

    Thanks for the clarification. Hmm, I wonder how I could move this thread to the general stuff area...

    A moderator can do it for you.

    When I don't work out, it makes me feel fat....

    Mentally, I get grouchy as hell and my attitude goes downhill fast. My wife usually tells me to go train. Physically, I can feel myself tightening up if I don't stretch, and I also have trouble sleeping. Being a tightly wound up person, I find Bjj helps me unwind better than anything but sex. Training is my drug of choice. It has positive mental and physical effects on me. I think I'm stating the glaringly obvious here though.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    So then I start training really hard and I end up overtraining or getting hurt.
    Then I can't train.

    I wish I know what my problem was!

    I don't seem to have trouble sleeping, but I do start to get restless and nervous. On Christmas Eve, I went to my family's church service (it makes my mom happy), and I kept imagining myself kneebarring the little old ladies that were sitting around us. It got so bad that I took out a piece of paper and started writing down training goals for the next month or so just to clear my mind of it.

    Not training certainly puts me in a crappy mood. I start to feel bad physically, aggression and frustration build up, and I start snapping at people when I shouldn't.

    I also selected "other pain," but it's not entirely true. I don't really feel a lot of pain, though my neck tends to stiffen up and my joints (knees and shoulders, specifically) start to creak like I'm 90. It's not actually painful, just strange. As long as I'm training, I'm loose, limber, and creak-free.

    I get cranky, my back hurts, and I gain weight very quickly.

    Bad times follow.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".
