How Music Might Improve Your Workouts

Listening to music during a short, intense bout of exercise might change how you feel about hard workouts and encourage you to continue with the program in the future, according to a new study of intense interval training and how to make it more palatable.

High-intensity interval training is a popular concept, both in exercise science labs and gyms. It consists of repeated bouts of all-out, punishing effort sandwiched between several minutes of lighter exercise. The intense intervals last for as little as 10 or 20 seconds, but can improve most people’s health and fitness to the same extent as an hour or more of traditional moderate aerobic exercise, studies show.
