‘Stirred awake by the exquisite music of my own relentless commitment’ – Mary Anne Radmacher.
For some, music itself helps drive commitment; it can mean the difference between giving up and persevering. It hits you over the loudspeakers the moment you enter the gym, if you haven’t already immersed yourself in your own personalised playlist.
And now a study conducted by the University of Maryland found that listening to music we enjoy causes the expansion of our blood vessels which increases oxygen delivery and ultimately enhances our workout.
To maximise this effect, try introducing a pre-workout supplement such as Gaspari Nutrition Superpump MAX to enhance vasodilation and increase endurance capacity.
