Listening to music when you hit the courts isn’t a new concept.
Research shows that listening to motivating music not only distracts athletes (from pain and fatigue) but can even improve effort. This helps you to play harder, faster and longer while greatly increasing your enjoyment of the game. Listening to music after you’ve been on the courts can also help your body recover quicker.
The right music elevates mood and persuades people to ride through waves of exhaustion rather than giving up. Songs that have between 120 and 140 beats per minute are generally considered the sweet spot – so as long as they mirror your heart rate. This puts you in the zone, can help you keep pace, elevates your mood and makes you want to move.
So why not put some of your favourite songs on next time you do SquashFit?
