Going to the Gym or making time to workout in the Park ? Bump up your workout routine with some old school R&B music. Research has shown exercise and music make such a great combination. Listening to music when you workout isn’t exactly a new concept. We do know that it improves your workout and exercise performance. Exercising along with the right kind of music will better enhance your overall mental performance. Studies have also revealed, those individuals who participated in the research performed more than twice as well on a verbal fluency test after listening to music while exercising, than those individuals did after exercising without music. The research studies didn’t reveal whether the improvement lasts very long, or whether it diminished quickly, but it seems that some mental stimulation worked for the brain like exercise works for the body. To date, lots of questions remain unanswered and that is why Backbeatrnb has come up with a playlist of old school music that you can “Pump up” your exercise routine with while working out.
Belinda owner and creator of Backbeatrnb did a workout at Eastern Athletics in Melville, NY. While working out, she discovered her playlist of the following songs gave her a better workout, because her focus was on the music and not on the workout; which made her routine go by faster. Here are the top 10 R&B Old School Jams that Belinda recommends for a great workout:
