I have always thought that when you are doing sport is very important to have a great music to motivate you. It is not the same to be running, cycling, aerobic..without music.
Several recent studies try to chase down the connection between our ears and our feet.
According to studies from Dr Karageorghis, there are four factors that contribute to a song’s motivational qualities: rhythm response, musicality, cultural impact and association.
Choose the right music can have several benefits.
In a recent study, subjects who cycled in time to music found that they required 7 percent less oxygen to do the same work when compared to music playing in the background. Music can also help block out the little voice in your brain telling you its time to quit.
Music also provides an ideal accompaniment for training. Scientific inquiry has revealed five key ways in which music can influence preparation and competitive performances: dissociation, arousal regulation, synchronization, acquisition of motor skills, and attainment of flow.
An athlete or exerciser whose goal during warm-up is elevating the heart rate to 120 beats per minute should select accompanying music that has a tempo in the range of 80–130 beats per minute. The authors have used this technique with collegiate athletes engaged in a tough weekly circuit training session, and the upshot has been a 20% improvement in attendance.
The segmentation effect is particularly strong if the individual knows the musical track very well and can anticipate the flow of the music. It is also beneficial to match the tempo of music with the intensity of the workout. For example, when cycling at around 70% of one’s aerobic capacity, mid-tempo music (115–125 beats per minute) is more effective than faster music (135–145 beats per minute)
I recommend you some music when you are doing sport:
1- Black Eyed Peas-Let´s get started
2- Bodyrockers-I like the way you move
3- Survivor-Eye of the Tiger
4- The Offspring- You´re gonna go far,kid
5- Hinder-Born to be wild
6- Blink 182- All the small things
7- Ac/Dc-Highway to hell
8- Nirvana-Smells like teen spirit
9- Rolling Stone-Start me up
10- Eminem-Lose your selfef
That music makes you..
- encourage you to stick with your exercise and deepen your pleasure in doing so,
- act as a blues-buster that elevates your mood and boosts your self esteem,
- increase your energy and lower fatigue to help you exercise with apparently less effort.
Now, try doing sport without music and with it, you will see the difference..
