Are TV and Music the Cure to Bodybuilding Boredom?

Certain weight lifters who have been training for muscle gains realize that bodybuilding workouts can become mentally difficult to sustain, especially during high volume periods, and this emotional barrier causes some to forego the weight training process before significant results are achieved. Yet, there is a proven method that improves motivation, and can even inspire a weight lifter to put forth far more effort than otherwise seems realistic.

Young and old alike use music in their spare time to lift emotions when feeling less than stellar, and this is in fact one of the most powerful bodybuilding workout aids for enhancing focus. On the surface, it would seem that any background noise may in fact distract a bodybuilder from his weight lifting workout obligations, but this is not so, as the mind, when focusing on a weight lifting set without music, is more likely to begin repelling from the stress that is about to occur, while music can provide a pleasant diversion from this reality, one that incredibly can cause a bodybuilder to lift more weight and perform a set with greater intensity than otherwise would be possible.

During moments when I have selected music that I either RAD 140 Stacks have not heard for an extended period, or when hearing a newly released song that I find appealing, I’ve been able to attack the weights with a level of focus and effort that has never been possible for me using any other technique. But such an mental boost obviously requires selecting a certain type of music, and this will differ based on our own individual preferences. If you are not currently a music listener, load a program such as iTunes and sample some free radio stations that play various types of music (80s, 90s, current, rock, pop, etc), and see if you can find some music that seemingly causes your an emotional high, and when you begin to experience an adrenalin boost because of a specific song, you know that this is ideal for a bodybuilding workout session, and can thus become a part of your workout collection.

In addition to music, I have recently started to experiment with watching TV programming as I perform my workouts, as I’ve found that a bodybuilding routine which otherwise may feel redundant can become substantially entertaining with the proper TV programming. I suggest recording your favorite shows on video tape or DVR, and play them back during your bodybuilding workout session (training at home provides me with the luxury of easily doing so), as this technique can also distract you from bodybuilding workout stress, and put you in a frame of mind where sustaining a 60-90 minute bodybuilding session becomes far more desirable.
