Professional prefer to exercise with music as it brings new emotions to a training process.

Scientists have explained why it is necessary to do sports listening to the music. One thing is clear: the answer is in your mind, rather than in the muscles. And the confirmation to this theory is an extraordinary study, during which two separate components were identified: the benefits from the repetition of a movement and the benefits from muscles producing movement exercising.
Sounds complicated, but several scientific studies confirm that when a person only imagines a movement, this process itself leads to a noticeable increase in the volume of corresponding muscles. This effect is not as pronounced as the effect of the actual exercising, but, according to some estimates, about half of the total benefits of training are brought by thoughts about the moves made.
The use of music is most evident in sports activities with a self-set pace - in those sports where you have to think and choose the mode to move. This applies to any rhythmic sports (running, rowing, kitesurfing) and less important in spasmodic (judo, football).
