Want to go further with your workout? Then music could be the answer. Experts suggest that it can be a tremendous supplement to exercise and can yield better results.

It is said that top athletes use music to enhance their performance and researchers are now studying this phenomenon to understand how to harness its power, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Costas Karageorghis, sports psychologist from Brunel University in London, suggests some tips on how to maximise the beneficial effects of music for your workout.

“Our research demonstrates that music can be a tremendous supplement to exercise. For maximum impact, the tempo and rhythmic pattern need to be targeted towards your movement rate and activity pattern. Music can benefit exercise particularly at low-to-moderate intensities,” said Karageorghis.

To get the best result in gym, the music should possess a pleasing melody and harmony, which improves your mood, typically is a major key. Music that promotes inspiring imagery or has strong personal associations can also be highly effective.

Different music work for particular types of exercise. Here is the list:

* Weight lifting: Music that is fast, rhythmic, percussive or bass-driven is particularly good for psyching yourself up before a highly strenuous activity like lifting heavy weights.

* Sprinting: You need faster music for when you are training at a high intensity.

* Jogging, rowing, cycling: A playlist should ideally contour your expected heart rate during such workout. If you are synchronising your movements with the music, the beats per minute need to match your intended movement rate, so it’s important to determine what this is likely to be and to select music accordingly.

“I don’t mind doing music in Bollywood. We have been lucky as people have been allowing us to do what we want. The working style is different as people set the mood and lyrics, but it is still fun,” Rahul told IANS.

“We won’t be the ones making item numbers as that is not our core skill. We are non-mainstream Bollywood with occasional performances,” he added.

Apart from doling out albums like “Desert Rain”, “Kandisa” and “Tandanu”, the band has rendered music for films like “Black Friday”, “Peepli Live” and “Masaan”.

He feels EDM (electronic dance music) has taken over the Indian music scene.

“A lot more venues and avenues as opportunities, festivals and live playing venues have mushroomed. TV and radio is almost dead and everything happens on the web, even though it is cheaper and easier to produce music but you have to fight with a thousand listeners for your share, a lot of types of music has come up — biodiversity and styles in music forms,” he added.
