1. Terry, Peter C. and Karageorghis, Costas I. (2006) Psychophysical effects of music in sport and exercise: an update on theory, research and application. In: 2006 Joint Conference of the Australian Psychological Society and the New Zealand Psychological Society, 26-30 Sept 2006, Auckland, New Zealand. effects of music on sport and exercise Improved mood Aroused control Reduced perceived exertion Enhanced work output Improved skill acquisition Disassociation from feelings of pain and fatigue Other findings the tendency for humans to respond to the rhythmical qualities of music by synchronizing movement patterns to tempo. if athletes or exercisers work in time to music, they will likely work harder for longer. upbeat music produces a stimulative effect whereas slow, soft music produces a sedative effect. Conclusion music has potential benefits, both psychophysically and ergogenically, when compiled precisely It is also imperative that athletes or exercise participants are involved in the selection of tracks, as this is likely to increase the potency of music-related effects.
