New research is suggesting upping the tempo of the music you listen to while exercising can not only make the exercise seem easier, but actually raise your heart rate and increase the benefits of physical training. It is perhaps no surprise music helps people exercise more effectively. Anyone who has spent more than a few minutes jogging while listening to fast-paced music can testify to the fact that rhythmic, high-intensity music at the very least can make exercise feel a little easier. Nineteen female subjects were recruited for the research. Each subject completed a number of exercise sessions consisting of either an endurance exercise walking for 10 minutes at a steady pace on a treadmill or a high-intensity exercise using a leg press machine. Four different music conditions were tested for each type of exercise - no music, 90 to bpm beats per minute , to bpm and to bpm. Importantly, the study revealed the benefits of high-tempo music were most prominent during endurance exercises as opposed to more short-burst explosive exercises. The researchers hypothesize the reason behind this difference may stem from the extra cognitive fatigue associated with endurance exercise.
