      DGB, I do not know exactly why that is. But, I feel the same way especially during a workout I need my Metallica and iron maiden, LOL. It pumps me up and I usually get a powerful workout.

    It's all mental. Listening to the music lifts your mental energy which in turn lifts your physical energy. The power of the mind is amazing.

    Before a three mile minute had ever been run, physicians had declared the feat impossible for the human body. Runners believed, and no one could run a three minute mile. The first year after Roger Bannister ran the first three minute mile, the feat was accomplished again and again by several runners.

    The mind is a powerful tool for accomplishing anything physical.

    Music gets you goin no matter what you do, it helps to realize adreanalin! I use heavy metal,rap and hiphop when i workout. Never been into panters but slipknot,rammstien,powerman 5000, rob zombie,distubd is a different story!

    Music is definitely inspiration in my opinion. I think it helps us focus especially when the task at hand does not require a lot of brain power. Running or exercising is a great way to listen to music, it stimulates our mind and takes the focus away from the pain our body endures during a hard workout.

    I don't think so. I never understood the need of some people to have some noise in their ears every waking moment of their lives.

    I listen to music when running and it takes my mind off the the tedium, monotony, of jogging or running and I have a better run or jog. Not to hearing myself breath heavily helps too.
