A new study out of the University of Tennessee says when you put on a “game face” it really CAN help you perform better under pressure.

In the study, of the two groups that were part of the experiment the game face group performed 20% better than the control group.

Those who put on a “game face” also exhibited improved stress recovery in comparison to the control group.

“If making a game face has the potential to improve performance, we may find this concept can have application outside of the traditional venue of sports,” explains lead author Matthew Richesin, a master’s student at the University of Tennessee.
