I have a treat for you! Check out this awesome article by Stijn van Willigen of BodylogiQ. This is right up my alley but Stijn has a unique way of communicating the science. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Do you know the 40% Rule? I said similar, and I've done the study (on myself), but one word of caution. You do indeed have way more "in the tank" but if you have not properly prepared your body for this progressively, this is where you could get hurt. Actually, two words of caution... The other is technique! If you are doing an exercise or end eco that requires some technique, I don't care how much you push through the mind barrier, it could result in disaster. And for what? To prove to your family, office coworkers or gym mates that you are not a wimp? It's good to have a Navy SEAL perspective, just like it's good to have an athletes perspective, but I'm telling you it's about your perspective, your goals, and your health. Likely you aren't doing a near max effort all all cost for life or country. Balance.
