Music And Exercise Research Summary

  1. 1. Based on article of same name by Len Kravitz, PhD and Retrieved from internet on 2/25/10: http://www.unm.edu/~lkravitz/Article%20folder/musicexercise.html
  2. 2. Effect of Music on Respiration and Heart Rate <ul><li>Ellis & Brighouse (1952) showed increased respiration rate with jazz music, returned with cessation of music </li></ul><ul><li>Dainow (1977) Any type of music will how moderate increase in HR </li></ul><ul><li>Application: Play music to depict intensity of upcoming workout as students enter room. Increased respiration & moderate increase in HR from music will help prepare student </li></ul>
  3. 3. Effect of different types of music on physical strength <ul><li>Only 1 study (Pearce, 1981) compared stimulative, sedative & silence to strength </li></ul><ul><li>Found listening to sedative music decreased strength significantly compared to stimulative & silence. </li></ul><ul><li>Application: Sedative music may decrease muscular fitness training ability. Might poll students on their favorite type of music (stimulative, sedative, silence) during exercise. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Effect of music & rhythmic stimuli in rehabilitation of gait disorders <ul><li>Steadfast research (Rudenberg, 1982, Staum, 1983) showed external auditory cues (rhythmic music & percussion pulses) favorably affected coordinated walking and proprioceptive control. Might have been due to the beat of the music. </li></ul><ul><li>Application: Music & auditory stimuli can be used to enhance gait & gross motor skills, leading to increased stability & mobility. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Effect of music on exercise performance <ul><li>Inconsistent data. Range from improved muscular endurance during sit ups to no change in running speed of youth. Others show ability to walk further with less effort. Others no change in submaximal bicycle performance, no influence on any physiological variable, psychological effort not altered, to even longer times to exhaustion with music. </li></ul><ul><li>Application: Jury is out, but if it works to improve enjoyment & compliance to program, it is worth it. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Effect of rhythmic accompaniment on learning fundamental motor skills <ul><li>With 600 kids grades 1 to 6, Beisman (1967) found motor skills were learned better with rhythmic accompaniment. Music produced relaxation & enjoyment. </li></ul><ul><li>Application: Music useful in teaching motor skills in elementary school at least </li></ul>
  7. 7. Effect of music on aerobic fitness <ul><li>Gfeller (1988) polled 70 college students, found 97% had greater perceived influence of music on performance in aerobics. Gender not particularly important for type of music </li></ul><ul><li>Application: Supports fact that music is motivating (Nelson & Finch 1963), mental attitude enhanced, music taste of class (boomer, seniors, students) should be considered when selecting music. Preferred music may facilitate focus on music or other external stimuli rather than discomfort. Can evoke pleasant associations, mask unpleasant stimuli (heavy breathing) or distract negative internal feelings. Can reduce stress, tension & anxiety (Maslar, 1986) </li></ul>
  8. 8. Summary <ul><li>Use music as pre-class stimulus </li></ul><ul><li>Sedative music may decrease muscular fitness potential. </li></ul><ul><li>Gross motor skills can improve with music & rhythmic stimulation in rehabilitation process </li></ul><ul><li>Music may make the activity more enjoyable </li></ul><ul><li>Music may help with basic motor skill learning </li></ul><ul><li>Music may motivate for exercise </li></ul><ul><li>Music may produce pleasant associations and mask unpleasant stimuli </li></ul><ul><li>Future trend to incorporate music into holistic approach of exercise for mind, body and spirit </li></ul>
