How to Be a Superhero: Pre-Game

Want to be able to lift 5 pounds an average of 5 seconds longer than the moral-less masses? Then do a good deed beforehand! LiveScience.com reports that a study has shown that doing a good deed before physical exertion gives you more agency (i.e., willpower and strength)! To lift weights!

The study also shows that if you do something villainous you get EVEN MORE AGENCY!!! The whole thing concludes by saying that agency helps people stick to their diets, so if you want to lose weight you should probably drown some puppies*.

*j/k! Puppies are a finite resource, so you should only imagine drowning them in order to stick to your diet! Also: http://www.dailypuppy.com/
