Scientists give examples also with other styles of music. For example, reggae and jazz make athletes on treadmills to do the same number of steps but they are steps much shorter with the same number of beats per minute. Thus traveled shorter distances at the same time, writes Daily Mail.

Important during exercise is not only the pace and style. The first determines how many steps will be taken, and the second - their length.


Belgian team studied 18 volunteers of an age between 22 and 51 years who listened to 52 different kinds of music during exercise on a treadmill. All specimens were offered at the same pace, but in different styles. Results of the survey conclude that more rhythmic and fast paced styles enhance the quality and impact of training, unlike the slower and melodic.

This does not mean you have to give up classical music. According to the same study, it has an application in your workout - in part by stretching as relaxing effect on muscles and body.
