Do you listen to music when working out? If not, maybe you should start!

According to H3 Fitness Specialist Amber Shadwick, recent results published in the Journal of Sport & Exercise Psychology, reveal that plugging into paced (beats per minute) music increases stamina on a treadmill by 20 percent.

 

However, do you find that your iPod sometimes serves as more of a distraction than motivator?  Finding the right beat, fumbling with the cord, where do you put it…  Just a few of the problems I have faced when trying to get my groove on and sweat at the same time.

 

Finding the right song for your workout = beats per minute (B.P.M.’s).  Listening to music that matches the pace of your individual footfall can also give you a psychological boost at critical points of exhaustion and fatigue. To figure out how many B.P.M.’s your workout tunes should be, count how many times your feet hit the ground during a one-minute run, or for you “purposeful” walkers out there, take an estimated minute and a half count. 

 

According to an article by the New York Times, “a stroll walker going at a pace of around 3 miles an hour, a remixed track has a count of 115 to 118 B.P.M.; for a power walker going 4.5 m.p.h., the count is 137 to 139 B.P.M., while the B.P.M. for a runner elevates to 147 to 160.”
