Heightened Senses

Your reflex actions become faster and your senses become sharper to help you reach your objective.


No Pain

Your pain sensitivity dips as your body doesn't make you aware of that pain immediately. But once the rush comes down, you will feel the pain.


Fast Breathing

You tend to breathe faster and deeper and this speeds up your heart beat too. You may sweat and your BP may increase. This way, your entire body undergoes several changes.


Energy Boost

Your energy gets a boost as more glucose gets into your blood stream. This occurs to help you perform well.
