Yes I'm back to discuss about Classical Music after a brief journey into other music; however after a serious setback with my health I went back to where my roots are and rejoined the human race with Classical Music. I realised it was good for my health and turned me around. I'm glad to be back discovering new and old favourites.
While searching the internet I found this and realised I was on the right track.
"Listening to your favourite classical music while exercising could have a
positive impact on your workout. Neuroscientist Dr Jack Lewis has found
that classical music lowered heart rates, blood pressure, and
perceptions of exertion in moderate intensity running tests.
Beethoven's music often sounding stormy or dramatic, Dr Lewis
recommends the finale of his Symphony No. 4 for anyone hitting the
treadmill this January. In fact, classical music was found to lower the
body's levels of of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress.
but not overly fast classical music can be ideal in the gym," he said.
"Not only does upbeat music increase speed, strength and endurance, but
the relaxing qualities of classical appears to reduce heart rate, blood
pressure and lower perceived exertion."
Increasing the beats per
minute (bpm) as heart rate climbs could also be beneficial. The finale
of Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 is 140bpm, but playlist recommendations
include Tinie Tempah's Pass Out (181 bpm) and Rizzle Kicks' Mama Do The
Hump (198 bpm) for those enjoying a more strenuous workout."
