Music is the secret weapon of home exercise videos.
The instructor's voice in home exercise videos is your constant companion, but in the background is an equally influential sidekick: the music. Exercise DVDs for years have come with a variety of soundtracks, but emerging scientific studies are showing just how important the music on home workout videos can be for men and women. Whether it's abs exercises or cardio exercise videos, the right music can help you get better results and improve your fitness, from beginners to advanced athletes.
The faster the beat in home exercise videos, the better your exercise will be. Before you get started with extreme home fitness exercise videos, test out playing different types of music to see which revs up your engine. Cardio exercise videos especially take advantage of a principle called entrainment, or synchronization, that causes men and women to match the intensity of the beat in the music. (American Council on Exercise) Weight loss exercise programs can burn more calories with a faster beat.
Home exercise videos can also distract you with music so that you don't even notice how hard you're working or how tired you're getting. The TurboFire® cardio exercise videos by Chalene Johnson are known for their musical selections, and it's her choice of energizing and entertaining music that helps make her intense home exercise routines seem just a bit easier. Exercise DVDs with great music just seem more fun, making weight loss exercise programs seem like less of a chore.
Energizing music on home exercise videos actually has the power to help you burn more calories and lose more fat. Weight loss exercise programs benefit from music, as shown in a recent study from Farleigh Dickinson University that reported overweight women who listened to music lost more body fat. The best exercise program is the one with the best music, such as the dance-based portions of Leandro Carvalho's Brazil Butt Lift®, which gets you shaking and moving and having so much fun you don't even know you're exercising.
