Dj Ana Paula pride 2017 music
When jogging, cycling or whenever performing a high-intensity workout listening to the right music can make all the difference. Many high-intensity exercise trainers agree with this. Many have achieved personal bests on sprint times [that they never dreamt of] by using music, the music you select for your workouts can help the magic happen.
Use music to help get you in the right mindset before you exercise. Arriving with the winning attitude is about half the battle. Selecting tunes that will inspire and motivate you is crucial.
Costas Karageorghis, a researcher at Brunel Uni, says: “If you are doing exercises at low to average intensity, music can lower your perception of how hard you have to work.” It might, therefore, push you to try harder and perform better.
Music will let you recover faster from workout routines, too, both in physical form and psychologically, he says.
Dr Karageorghis advises music with a straightforward harmonic and melodic composition to recover. A tempo that reduces from about 90 beats each and every minute to 60bpm, such as Enya’s Orinoco Move (Sail Away) or Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud. This type of music can help reduce your heart rate and relax you which means that your body can commence healing.
Sometimes, however, it is best to lower the volume or take your headphones off during certain workouts.
During extreme workout sessions, your ears actually are more delicate. Dr Karageorghis says: “During high-intensity intensive training, the blood circulation to the shell-like area of the inner hearing is reduced. This leaves the follicles that grab the audio more vulnerable to harm from the audio.”
The latest Pride 2017 Music Podcast by Dj Ana Paula might be just what you need to make the most of your workouts.
So bearing in mind what the experts say, here you have some tips:
The tracks you choose should mean something to you. If you will be doing a tough interval session, select ones that you’ve performed well to in the past.
Switch off your music if you’re struggling with an exercise or lose track of repetitions.
Limit the volume during high-intensity sessions to protect your ears.
If you can’t get to sleep after an evening workout, listen to a gentle track before you go to bed.
