How to pep talk your way to a personal best


The power of the mantra is talked up 24/7 throughout the sports world, but until now, we had no idea exactly how much power those positive, push-harder words could have. A recent study evaluated cyclists' athletic performance with two tests. During the first, the athletes were told to pedal at 80 percent of their peak power output, the Huffington Post reports. Between the first and the second, they were treated to a motivational coaching session, where they were provided with tools to help them talk their way to a better performance. And when using those skills, the cyclists indeed improved. They were able to bike longer and harder, and said that they didn't feel as though they were working as hard as they had previously. Talk about a turn-around!  


A few of our favorite mantras to get you started...

"Oh yes I can!"

 

"I'm stronger than I think I am"

 

"The only thing stopping me is me"

 

"It's about progress, not perfection"

 

"There is no tomorrow, only today"

 

Which mantra do you live (and run and work) by?
