It's been a fact to every gym rat that music enhances one's working performance and motivates you to work harder.
Whether it be Beyonce's "Naughty Girl" or Eminem's "Lose Yourself," it inspires you to work harder, burn your fats and boost your workout performance and duration.
As reports by CNN Health, the higher the tempo is, the more intense your training gets. Music also plays a significant role in setting up your mood and to aim your goal.

How Should We Start?
Everyone has their own music choices which motivates them to push harder. Similarly, create your own playlist but try to add music based on the BPM.
