5 FOODS YOU'RE PROBABLY EATING WRONG
Runners, joggers, and crazy speed walkers: listen up!
Need something to give you that little extra push on your morning run? The Swedish streaming service, Spotify, will be releasing a new app called Spotify Running that will be here to help! The app runs on your smartphone and matches your music with your pace to push you to move a little faster and work a little harder.
How does it work?
While using the app, runners can pick any of their own songs and the app will determine their pace and stretch the song (just slightly) to match their pace. With this speed in mind, the app will then recommend more running songs based on the runner’s listening history. The right beat combined with the right speed has been proven to improve overall workouts. The runner will move faster and travel longer distances, creating a better workout and a happier runner!
The app can do more than that! Spotify is also pairing with some of the big-name DJs and artists to create new music specifically geared to runners.
Are you getting the best workout? Studies are showing that music often helps runners exercise better, and here are a few reasons why:
Breathe Better: A recent study showed that when people worked out with music, they used seven percent less oxygen than when they did the same exercise without music.
Enjoy Exercise: Arguably the most important, people that listen to music during workouts tend to enjoy working out more. The more someone enjoys their workout, the more likely they will be to make it a habit.
Increased Efficiency: More than just better breathing, music can increase the overall efficiency of the workout. The louder and faster the music, the more likely the runner will be to run faster and farther on their course.
Though the app is not yet available, we at CORE Physical Therapy will be keeping an eye out! The app is advertising that it will be available for iPhones and Androids. If you have questions about how to get the most out of your workout, give CORE a call today!
