Exercise with music This is a strong motivation for people, it even helps them to achieve something goals. But it’s not just about putting a playlist and wait for the action to happen, there are specific topics that help our mind and body to move and drive to continue training, and these are scientifically checked.
An investigation of Brunel University from London showed that carefully selected music can reduce the perception of effort by up to 12%, enhance the beneficial effects of exercise by up to 15%, functional efficiency by up to 7% and extend voluntary endurance by up to 15%. %.
Research has also proven that the faster music This is better at higher exercise intensities, but the relationship is not linear. Instead, there are a series of dips and plateaus within a narrower band than expected (125 – 140 beats per minute).
What are the effects of a good playlist for exercise?
Dr. Costas Karageorghis, deputy director of research at the School of Sports and Education, prepared a game list what he called ‘Ultimate Fitness Workout’ of Spotify based on their long-standing research program on the psychological effects of music while performing physical training.
By analyzing the 6.7 million playlists in the exercises carried out by Spotify’s market research team and the use of a new theoretical model he developed, Dr. Karageorghis develops the playlist Considering the global popularity of contemporary tracks with its psychoacoustic properties (referring to the scientific study of sound perception), rhythmic qualities, tempo or beats per minute (bpm) and lyrical content.
Examined by Dr. Karageorghis the effect of music on physical activity from many different perspectives, using experimental techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), respiratory analysis and heart rate variability to a wide range of qualitative approaches such as observation, surveys and interviews.
“A well-curated playlist can modulate how you feel even during relatively high-intensity exercise. “We concluded that, during high-intensity exercise, there is an upper limit to musical tempo preference that is approximately -husband of 140 bpm,” said the study published on the university’s website.
