Working out in silence can make a 20-minute workout seem like an hour. Now you may already be keen to workout but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have some extra motivation. No, we aren’t talking about reaching your summer body. We are talking about having a playlist with great hits. The music you are currently listing to might just not be doing it for you. Luckily there are a few things that make for a great playlist.
There have been tons of research that proves the benefits of listening to music while working out. One of which is that it boosts your mood. But that’s not all. Listening to music can also help motivate you to push harder and go a bit further. Music can also help you enjoy the exercises you are doing, make you sprint faster, and distract you from how much time is left of your workout.
