What are the benefits of listening to music while working out?
According to Scientific American, listening to music can boost your overall athletic performance. A review conducted by Costas Karageorghis of Brunel University in London, who is one of the top experts in the world on the psychology of exercise music, streaming your favorite hits can be considered "a type of legal performance-enhancing drug."
In addition, listening to music while working out can put you in a better mood, take your mind off of fatigue or pain, boost your endurance, and may help your metabolism. It will also make you feel like you're not exerting yourself as hard as you actually are, since it makes the time go by faster while you're jamming out on the treadmill or lifting weights!
