Music - The legal performance enhancer

Dieting Psychology
Imagine yourself walking into the gym when the pandemic dust has settled, motivated to conquer the day. It's your turn to perform the deadlifts, you are all pumped up. Now, as soon you set your grip on the barbell. The music track changes to "I am a Barbie girl". What would be your reaction?

If you ask me, I would feel my soul shrinking. Does that mean music can impact not just your mood or emotion but also your workouts significantly? Let's take a look at some evidence-based studies and figure it out. Several studies show people tend to push themselves more while listening to fast-paced music and feel less tired. Ideal tempo necessary for maximum performance depends on the type of exercise. Exercise intensity can be mapped through heart-rate.Ideal tempo depends on the individual's ability to keep up with time and beats of music with rhythmic demands of exercises/workouts. Studies suggest music can significantly improve athletic performance in two ways: it can either delay fatigue or increase work capacity. It increases levels of endurance, power, productivity, and strength. Endurance to pain also increased as music distracted people through competing sensory stimuli. Do you think choosing a right track can actually push you towards quality workout? Right music can cancel out fatigue and build up your pain endurance.
