The Ultimate Workout Playlist - Indian Edition


Published: 19 Aug 2020 11:48 AM GMT

How important is music to your workout? Be it the peppy beats or the rhythm of the drums, each of us has our own preference and thereby, a personal workout playlist. Every time we come across a song or a tune which lifts our spirits, it conveniently finds its way into our workout playlist.

However, this happens only once in a while, and the search for a worthy addition is a long one. Nevertheless, the entire process is worth it because research studies have shown that music influences your workouts. One research study indicated that women who listened to music on an endurance run showed better performance than those who did not.

This is not restricted to just running, which is why gyms have their workout playlist updated to the latest tunes which keep everyone upbeat and pumped to workout. If we closely observe, we are open to embracing new music while sweating it out. It acts as an extra motivator and when the tune is really catchy, we end up humming it for the rest of the day.
