How does this start to happen?

If you are wondering how this happens it is all due to adrenaline. Scientists have a limited amount of information about this phenomenon because it happens so rarely and without warning, but . Now I will tell you how it works from the beginning, when the brain senses fear or danger the human body goes through a tremendous change. When the brain recognizes stress from the dire situation it sends a signal to the adrenal glands. These glands release adrenaline and noradrenaline hormones that help a human confront danger. These hormones also increase heart rate, raise respiration and allows muscles to compress.

How does adrenaline come in place?

After the adrenal glands release hormones the adrenal medulla (the interior part of the adrenal glands) releases adrenaline. Adrenaline facilitates the blood flow to the muscles. This means more oxygen is is delivered to your muscles. Adrenaline also makes it easier to convert glycogen into glucose (body fuel into body energy). This gives energy to muscles and a rapid rush of glucose allows muscles to strengthen further. This is a theory how we obtain super strength in times of danger.
