LISTENING to your favourite music while working out can add an extra 19 minutes to the average session, a study has found.
A typical gym or jogging session to music will last 58 minutes compared to 39 minutes when it´s done in silence, according to sportswear firm Sweatband.
In total, 60% of the 1600 adults surveyed said they listened to music while working out, with 35% saying it distracted from the pain and intensity.
Just over a quarter, 27%, said music helped them increase the number of exercise repetitions they did, while another 22% said they could lift heavier weights with music in the background.
Dance music was the favourite genre to work out to, followed by rock, hip hop, pop, and drum ´n´ bass.
