      Wow. That is out of our area of expertise. We will try to research but this will be a tough one.

    I have heard of well documented cases when people are able to lift extraordinarily heavy objects during times of crisis, such as mothers lifting cars off their trapped children. Is this done by overriding the golgi tendon organs which limit muscular contraction to a safe level? Related to that, I’ve been told that when a person is struck by lightening and their body is thrown a distance away, it is not actually the lightening picking them up, obviously, but the lightening contracting their muscles so hard that they throw themselves much further distances than they would have normally been able to jump. Is this also the lightening overriding the golgi tendon organs and contracting the muscles to their highest extent?
