The Best Winter Workout Playlist

A good workout playlist is essential for the gym – so the thought of training without one seems unbearable.

Recent studies suggest a workout playlist  can enhance and influence a training session. Keep reading to find out how!

Listening to music makes you feel good

When we listen to music during a workout our brains release feel-good chemicals boosting our mood, dulling pain and increasing energy.  

Current research suggests the mood enhancing chemicals also raise our pain threshold allowing us to train harder.

Listening to music helps you up your tempo

A 2010 study found cyclists work harder when listening to faster music, compared to songs with a slower tempo. It suggests music tempo can help us perform repetitive motions faster if  nothing else, provide   an upbeat rhythm  we can set our pace to.

In his book, Applying Music in Exercise and Sport Costas Karageorghi points out, “the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps, is particularly well known for his use of a brash and aggressive hip-hop playlist in the competitive arena. He is able to block out the pre-race hullaballoo, focus intently on the task at hand, and reinforce his identity as the imperturbable principal of the pool through his distinctly rap-centric soundtrack.”

Now we know music is beneficial to our exercise sessions, let’s get equipped with the ultimate winter workout playlist, to get you motivated and moving!
