Outsmart Fatigue

Men's Health |

In a recent British study, cyclists who used self-talk were able to extend their time to exhaustion by 18%. Participants chose four motivational mantras – two for the midphase of a workout and two for the end. Start with upbeat ones: “Feeling good!” “You’re a winner!” As you go, unleash the fatigue blasters, like “Dig deep” and “Push it.”
