Yelling can make runners finish faster Want to improve your running time? A new study suggests that the secret is to shout positive statements at the top of your voice before setting off. Researchers have found that precisely nine minutes of yelling such inspirational phrases as “I’m going to dominate today” or “I’m the definition of speed” makes runners go faster. Results of a study at the University of Nevada, published in the current British Journal of Sports Medicine, reveal that this motivational intervention was far more effective in improving speed than performing 20 minutes of basic yoga moves (popular with runners as part of their warm-up routine).
