Would you consider me a weird person if I confess that I don’t like to listen to music while working out? Pretty weird huh..!! Well.. I thought so! The thing is.. music distracts me (not in general.. just while exercising). It may sound stupid but yes, when I am working out, I like to concentrate on my form, my speed, my breathing and if I have music on, well I concentrate mostly on the beats, or the singer or what to play next.. or to skip the current song and jump to my favorite one… ahh…! It wastes my time. Plus I don’t like how the earplugs cables hang and hinder the movements (even the wireless headset is not comfortable to me). It’s frustrating. So I don’t listen to music while working out and I am usually done with my workout within 40 minutes! And that is a high intensity interval training that I am talking about! It consists of no official breaks (you take a break when you feel the need) but the clock keeps ticking!
How do you like to workout – Music or No Music?
