This entry was posted on June 20, 2020.
Whenever you enter the gym, pretty sure the first thing you can hear is a song blasting in the speakers.
You either love or hate that song which can affect your mood while working out.
But with some fitness gyms closed due to the pandemic, you are forced to do your workout routine at home.
On top of that, you are left in charge of making your own workout playlist. Is that a good thing? For some, it will be. You have a direct control over the songs you can listen to.
But why do most people even listen to music while working out? Does it make a difference in your stamina and energy?
Benefits of Working Out with Music
While some people opt to exercise without listening to music, most people find working out to songs a lot better.
Moreover, doing your workout at home can be extra harder.
The comfort of your own home, being near to your soft bed and kitchen, can be a distraction for some to finish their routine.
That is why some music blasting from your speakers or your AirPods might be handy to keep you focused.
- Music sets your mood. Whether you prefer pop, rap, rock, or even jazz, music can put you “in the zone”. Exercising will definitely make you sweat and drain your energy. Being in your best possible mood to finish your set is very important.
- Music enhances coordination. The beats of your workout songs can definitely improve your coordination. One way or another, there is a high chance that you would associate your timing and repetition to the tune of what you’re listening to
- Music improves performance and reduces pain. Whether you notice it or not, listening to your favorite workout songs can amp you up. The idea and feeling of being exhausted can go away, at least for a few minutes. According to some studies, music can reduce several levels of pain. Muscle sores and aches will definitely not stop you from exercising.
- Songs make you enjoy while you sweat. Whether you are doing cardio on your treadmill or lifting those weights, music will make it more fun. The last thing you would want while sweating is being bored and agitated. You can groove, move, and workout to the rhythm of the songs you are listening to.
- The lyrics can motivate you. The words in every song you listen to can be associated with certain memories you have. If Beyoncé tells you to Move Your Body, you will probably do it with a smile.
