Hysteria Strength or Hysterical Strength also referred to as Superhuman Strength is a genetic mechanism hardcoded into human DNA that is triggered during massive and life threatening scenarios. During such event the human brain, primarily the Hypothalamus triggers the muscle fibers to contract and in a single instance triggers all muscle fibers asynchronously. During this moment the body is capable of superhuman strength, and the person in such condition is capable of lifting anywhere from 500 to 1600 (1.6 tons) kilograms.

Such life saving mechanism comes at a cost, the cost is chance of ripping muscles tissues from bone, and permanently damaging muscles. It is also been proven that human body uses limited amount of its full muscles potential, as this allows the body to most efficiently operate.
In 2011, in Tampa, Florida, 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m), 295 lb (134 kg) college football player Danous Estenor lifted a 3,500 lb (1,600 kg) car off of a man who had been caught underneath. The man was a tow truck driver who had been pinned under the rear tire of a 1990 Cadillac Seville, which had lurched forward as he worked underneath it. The mans brain went into "Hysteria Strength" mode in order to save a stranger's life.
