Here are 5 fast facts about music’s direct impact on your physical capabilities:
-Music leads to subconscious motivation, which can help physical performance, by influencing both your heart rate and brain waves.
-As the music gets louder and faster, your breathing patterns actually sync up with the beat.
-Music activates the subcerebellum and amygdala which control emotions such as pleasure and decrease interactions between the areas of the brain in charge of communicating exhaustion.
-Listening to music with a higher BPM (beats per minute), results in neurons firing longer with stronger pulses which lead to an amazing workout minus the instant fatigue.
-Lyrics that include positive affirmations or associations are also powerful tools to get you through that last repetition.
