A popular celebrity once said, “I spend about 75% of my time at the gym finding the right song for my workout.” That is the conundrum we face while working out. Studies indicate that music is a huge motivator for workouts. In fact, fast-paced and high tempo beats encourage movement. How many times did you get up and do a little jig just because the song had infectious beats?
Music diverts your mind from pain and tiredness. It energizes you and also increases the flow of endorphins to your brain. It makes you feel happy while working out. Studies indicate that music also increases the metabolic rate. People who listen to music may carry out extended workouts without realizing it but enjoy themselves nonetheless.
In fact, Sonakshi Sinha has attributed her svelte frame to long and hard workouts while listening to Yo Yo Honey Singh’s songs. She once tweeted, “Woke up at 6 am. Didn’t know what to do. Put on some @asliyoyo music on full blast and BAM – 2 hour workout done!” So, add these songs to your workout playlist, dust your gym shoes (or dancing shoes), and sweat it out with full energy and motivation.
