The perfect running playlist
The warm weather is back and many of us are going to start running again. If you need some motivation, here are a few tips to create the perfect running playlist.
The importance of choosing the right music
Music has a stimulating effect when you work out. You have probably noticed that it helps you dive into your activity completely and motivate you. What you may not know is that some scientific studies have proven the benefits of music on the body. For example, you want to listen to slow music. It reduces heart beat frequency and helps develop your capacities. Simultaneously, music helps you produce more serotonin and dopamine. These two neurotransmitters help you stay motivated throughout your entire running session.
Using the right equipment
If you want to enjoy all the advantages of music, you need to find the right equipment. You may want to use a hands-free kit. Make sure it holds on well to your ear and is specifically designed to work out. If you want to be freer to move, choose Bluetooth earphones. You can choose a discreet and light model to listen to your music with high quality sound or choose one with a microphone if you want to make phone calls. For a more intense musical sensation, you may choose earphones with an improved bass system. Feel free to browse through the Schneider catalogue to find what you are looking for!
Your running playlist
As for your running playlist itself, the most important thing is to choose songs you like. But if you want to try out new music for your work out sessions, here are few suggestions. To start your running session, you may listen to “Locked Out Of Heaven” by Bruno Mars, “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons, one of the “Titanium” covers or “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO. Then, if you like electro music more, carry on with “Last Dance” by Les Loups. If you like rap music, Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” is a classic. And if you need more motivation at some point in your session, choose rock music such as “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC or “Can’t Stop” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
