    Cortisone and adrenaline are released during high stress and it represses the immune system

    Really? I have been having real troubles with some people in my life the last six months. And I think my imune system is down, it takes at least 3 times longer for cuts etc to heal. Not saying stress is it but I have been trying to figure out why.

    sure, just because you have stress doesnt mean your not going to make gains. stress is a part of everyones life, going to the gym is one way of relieving it

    IMO the biggest burden of stress is the psychological effect

    Depends on the person, their total cumulative stress, sleeping habits, dietary habits, genetics, age, etc. Impossible to quantify.

    Moral of the story: train smart and attempt to reduce the stressors in your life as much as possible.

    It's no good worrying about how stress imapirs your muscle growth, because then you're stressing and therefore impairing muscle growth.

    I think there is a direct relation between muscle growth and stress and depression. I've been going through some rough times lately, especially at my current employment and where I'm going with that. I also had some heavy problems with my girl and I've noticed a huge difference in my weight and workouts. I've lost weight but have not changed my eating habits and was switching up my routines like I have done in the past but still have lost weight and my muscle growth has seemed to reduced or slowed down.

    Ya know if you have a good diet (high in alkaline foods, low in acidic), meditate, relax, and all that stuff you could reduce your stress levels in case your worried about that.
    Good Day
