Working to the Beat

Music alleviates physical exertion

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences have found that music does not simply distract us when physically working hard by making the work seem a lot easier, but it actually reduces the effort, probably because of improved muscle coordination.

“These findings are a breakthrough because they decisively help to understand the therapeutic power of music”, explains Thomas Fritz.

No wonder why I love to listen to music when I work out. Awesome!
