I know this is an area where data is sketchy at best. For the docs, coaches, trainers, arm chair theorists or long time hardcore trainers, what's your take on it? I'm still doubtful, but I've had workouts where I pushed it, way over the top, and later, felt different, like the muscles had been stimulated, micro traumed in a qualitively if not quantifiably different way. Even fatigue levels, sensations and perceptions were different, as if more- or additional chemicals, hormones or neurotransmitters were released. Might all be nothing but maybe its possible?
