How Music Helps Enhance Your Workout Sessions

Did you know that music has the quality to both, boost your concentration as well as distract your brain? And this particular characteristic of music proves to be helpful especially when you are working out! While working out, most of us are mentally prepared for the sore muscles and that is why we find excuses to skip that one extra rep. That is where music comes in…..

Your body has a built-in mechanism for syncing with musical beats. The faster and more upbeat the song, the faster and more upbeat you’ll probably move. As a result of music’s ability to activate the area of the brain that controls movement, repetitive movements are carried out by your body more effectively. Your heart rate, metabolism, and energy efficiency all increase as a result of this synchronisation, which also lowers your blood pressure and eases both physical and mental stress. You’re also less prone to experience weariness.

Music also aids in pain relief. It serves as a diversion or distraction, keeping your attention off of both pain and exhaustion. Additionally, it aids with pain management. In addition to this, listening to music causes your body to release hormones and opioids that are known to improve mood. These hormones can help you manage your pain in addition to enhancing your mood.

These hormones increase your ability to tolerate discomfort, enabling you to exert more effort during your workout. When your brain interacts with music the frequency of opioid signals increases, which enhances its pain-relieving effects. One example of this is moving in time to the beat.

You must be having a workout playlist with all sorts of western music. But this time when you hit the gym we suggest you try these songs:

Om Shanti Om: Karz
Well, the beats of this song are super groovy. Just like we mentioned earlier your body tends to synchronise its movements to the beats of any song. This song in particular can be really helpful during your Zumba session. So the next time you’re at the gym try vibing to this song but just make sure you don’t wear the pants that Rishi Kapoor wore.

Jumma Chumma Dede: Hum
Who said the songs that you vibe to at a club can’t be a part of your workout playlist? Jumma Chumma never fails to make your body do the shimmy. But apart from that, this song’s beats are so power-packed that they will surely make you stretch your squats for an extra minute.

Duniya Mein Logon Ko: Apna Desh
This is yet another song that can be a great addition to your Zumba playlist. We are sure that this song is surely going to help you unleash the Mumtaaz within you during the first 30 seconds. Apart from that, the beats of this song will definitely help you lift weights better.

Piya Tu Ab Toh Aaja: Caravan
How can we not ask you to add this song not add to your Zumba playlist? The beats of this song can make anyone dance, we bet on it! So go wake the Helen within you by doing your jumping jacks on the beats of this song.

Eena Meena Deeka:
We know you are lying if you say you haven’t shaken your leg to this song. If you are into Crossfit, this is your song. This song has an amazing pace to it which will keep you moving always. So the next time you’re doing the kettlebell swings make sure you play this song and give your swings that extra speed and pace!

Another factor that is as important as the workouts are the cool-down exercises. There are tons of Bollywood instrumental music that can help you soothe your sore muscles after a hardcore workout session. Let’s have a look at some of them
