For some athletes and for many people who run, jog, cycle, lift weights and otherwise exercise, music is not superfluous—it is essential to peak performance and a satisfying workout.
Here’s some of the things music does for your workouts:
- Gives you a metronome tempo you can use to keep a consistent pace, instead of wandering
- Distracts you from the task at hand just a bit
- The right kind of music for you, motivates you.
