Rock on through the pain

You knew it, now they’ve proved it: tunes boost performance.

Great article on this in the Globe: Will music help my workout?

The dominant theory about why music boosts exercise performance is that we have a limited ability to pay attention to the information our senses gather. Focus on sounds and sights, the theory goes, and you’re less aware of the distress signals your muscles are sending you.

Great read.
