What is a workout without music? The answer is: boring. Research has shown that listening to music while working out can elevate your mood and make exercise seem easier too. It may even make you work harder!
So how do you make the best out of this? It turns out, it's not as simple as just creating a simple playlist. Here are the ways:
1. Decide if you want to move with the music
Using music synchronously during exercise might improve efficiency. Find out the beats per minute in the music you're playing, if you're looking to synchronize your music and workout.
2. Choose songs that are uplifting and inspirational

You want it to motivate you. Not make you take a moment to hit a note.
