Whether there is a scientific study or not, try to workout with the terrible music playing at your local gym and your workout intensity is likely to suffer.
When you Exercise What is Your Style ?
The type of music which helps you work out faster, harder, stronger, longer, will most likely boil down to your tastes.
AskTheTrainer.com likes music that gets your heart rate going even if you’re not exercising. Music that you can sit there and study to won’t do the trick. If you want to work out intensely, you have to listen to intense music.
