Music Improves Exercise Endurance

By | Fitness Centers | No Comments

It’s easy to believe that music does its own part to help make a workout be more enjoyable. Most people, however, might be surprised that there is science to prove that music improves exercise endurance by stimulating physiological responses. That’s right, music is just as important to maximizing the potential of a workout as stretching and proper hydration.

Music As A Performance Enhancing Drug

That is exactly how Brunel University’s lead researcher, Costas Karageorghis, described music’s relationship to working out or competing. The studies performed on the psychology of music in exercise concluded that those who listened to tunes had higher levels of endurance, experienced less fatigue and enjoyed better metabolic efficiency. The combination of emotion inspired by song association, the cadence of the lyrics and rhythm of the music have a stunning effect upon the heart rate. Bikers pedal faster, runners pump their legs more powerfully, a stroll can quickly become a sprint. This happens due to what researchers call the “rhythm response”.

Rhythm Response

This effect of music upon exercisers was first noticed in 1911. Since then interested psychologists, inspired by this relationship, have performed various studies. It is clear to medical experts that it is instinctual for the human body to attempt to synchronize its own rhythms with that of the music it is hearing. If you want to get the most out of your workout keep in mind that songs that have about 120-140 beats per minute (BPM) will maximize the potential of a cardio workout.

Endurance Edge

To take your workout further, the Brunel studies suggest music can help to increase endurance levels by as much as 15%. Integrated into London’s half marathon, aptly named “Run To The Beat”, music was the primary feature of the race. Music along the route was selected to maximize the performance potential of the participants.
