Biking, Rowing, Running and Climbing to Music Is Great But Watch Where You Are Going

By Lance Winslow

Over the years, I’ve participated in many extreme type sports, and I’ve always loved to push my body and brain to the limits. The faster you go, the more the adrenal glands are likely to shoot hot lava into your system. Couple that with the fatigue factor and endorphin rush, and you have something better than any natural or artificial drug, I’d guess. For those who’ve never been at the top of their game, pushing for more, going for broke, and risking it all, you don’t know what you are missing, and you don’t know what living life to the fullest is all about.

But mind you, I am not here to give you a lecture or even try to get your fat tubby bottom off the couch away from the large screen TV or away from all your digital friends on Facebook who talk about stuff like this, watch the YouTube viral video of the day and say wow – still, you should have been there, not watching it – doing it.

Okay so, maybe you don’t have the body for it, you’ve let yourself go, or you don’t have the daredevil attitude, fine, but have you ever wondered what it feels like to experience it all? Why not get your feet wet? Why not do some less-than-extreme workouts and have some fun? Take some music along to keep your mind and body in enjoyment amid the pain, the pain which comes with that same slogan; no pain, no gain.

Try Some Music Why Don’t You?

In the September Issue of Popular Mechanics there was an interesting article “Running to the Beat” which recommends playing songs with a 120-140 BPM (beats per minute) tempo. This is considered the best frequency for a solid cardio vascular work out of any type, running and jogging included.

Let me tell you, if you’re at the upper end of the BPM, you can will your mind and body to do incredible an extreme things – such as racing a motorcycle or Street bike. Mountain climbers tell me they also like to use music. If you find the perfect song for your rowing tempo, it’s amazing how long you can go without getting tired.

That’s not to say you won’t feel it tomorrow, but again, no pain no gain. So whether you are mountain biking, running, rolling, or climbing – good music with a good cadence and tempo is a great place to start – just do me a favor, watch where you’re going. Please consider all this and think on it.
