I don't know about you, but when I press play on my sound system it seems like I am pressing play on Life! Especially when it’s during my work out. The beat gives me something to move to, the rhythm keeps me going when I feel like giving up and the passionof the artist gets transferred to me so I just have to give it my all until the
very end.
How does it all work? Read below for 6 tips on how music is great for your workout.

Music distracts athletes from bodily awareness. Not just listening, but controlling and creating music in tune
to one’s pace has an even more profound effect on perceived effort during a
workout.

      1. Music is a good kind of distraction
By working out with music, performance
can be increased by up to 15%. According to WebMD, Upbeat tunes have more
information to process, which takes your mind off of that side stitch.

      2.
Increases your effort

People tend to workout harder
when listening to faster music. Songs between 120 and 140 beats per minute
(6pm) have the maximum effect on moderate exercisers.

      3.
Focus

Having that song that just gets
you in the zone, really helps to keep you going.

      4.
Keep your pace:

The motor area of the brain is stimulated
by the rhythm of your workout music. This tells your body when to move during self-paced
exercises such as running or weight lifting. Music helps users to use
energy more effectively through structured movement.

      5.
Mood improvement:

Listening to good music during
your workout can help you escape negativity and power you through your workout.

      6.
Makes you want to move:

No matter how much you are
dreading your workout, when the beat gets to you, your brain gets excited and
induces movement.
