A recent study noted a significant improvement in running endurance after participants took a placebo. Studies have also noted that when a placebo is ethically injected, it produces better results than those taken orally, but both forms produce notable improvement. Placebos are accepted as a scientfic fact…the mind is powerful!
Arnold was quoted as saying “the mind always fails before the body.” I agree 100%, but many will use their “body” as an excuse to do less or even to do nothing. The mind can be your weakest or strongest link in the chain, and your body follows what your mind tells it to do.
