I'm so much stronger when I'm angry

I feel like I can't do certain things until someone makes me mad. I was in a very bad mood yesterday and I beat my boyfriend in armwrestling. Now he's embarrassed. Do any other girls get like this?

Our bodies, under stress of many kinds, produces a "fight or flight" response, which causes a rush in adrenaline in case we would need to run away or fight for our lives. That rush, in simple terms, gives you extra strength and energy that you didn't realize you had. Even though we're rarely in real fight or flight situations, our bodies don't discriminate between real danger and the perceived feeling of danger caused by stress. So it's a common experience.
