A Brunel University expert proves that getting a personal plasmallexercisemusic.jpgy

list can: increase performance levels by up to 20%, reduce

feelings of tiredness and improve your ability to acquire motor

skills.

If your in the gym and not performing as well as you would like, or feeling tired during your workout, it just might be the music your listening to. Dr Karageorghis’s work not only provides a scientific explanation for the phenomenon, it also reveals that individuals need to create their own playlist according to their personal preferences and the intensity of activity they are engaged in.

Some of the known benefits include: more energy and focus as you get ‘into the flow’ of your exercise routine, working harder as the music stimulates your heart and nervous system, and an added emotional edge when competing.

So get your Mp3 player or iPOD out and get into the groove! Now you know you’re doing yourself some good and getting more out of your workouts than ever before.
