Music is for many a tool used to help them get through a hard workout. A new study has shown that the benefit may be more than just helping one get through an event that is less than motivating. Music, it has been determined, can not only help pass the time easier but it can help you have a more intense, beneficial, and more effective workout.
Playlists can be designed to help one get a better workout say researchers. It is important to put songs on the playlist that can keep the listener motivated and keep them working at a pace that will be best for the intended workout. Beats of a song can make an impact on the stride and pace of a run or the repetitions with a weight machine. The right music can make a great difference so special effort should be made to choose the right songs for a workout and to put them in a playlist order that will be of greatest benefit to the workout’s length and pace.
In a study that was published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognition and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany, and other institutions found that using exercise machines hooked up to sound producing equipment allowing those working out to make rhythms with their movements produced better workouts. The research proved that making music during your workout can be an effective way to get a better workout with greater results. Music helps a person stay focused, makes the workout easier, and helps them perform at a higher level for a longer amount of time. It was found that music had an impact of making a workout 15% better than without it.
Putting in a variety of music genres was found to also be of benefit when working out to music. While some music genres would be best for the intense part of a workout other genres may offer a better song or songs for a cool down. It is important to choose music you enjoy to make the workout better.
