7.50 Workout series Day 11 Motivational Pump It Up

Listening to music while exercising doesn’t just relieve boredom it can help improve the quality of your workout by increasing your stamina and putting you in a better mood.

In particular, music that is motivational or synchronized with your exercise is shown to have physical and psychological effects. When a song has a strong, steady beat, for example, you can pedal or run to the beat of that music, which tends to feel satisfying and may inspire you to exercise more. The lyrics or catchy rhythm of motivational music inspires you to exercise longer or work harder during your exercise routine.
