Music and its effect on sportsFeatured science projectScience project video

Conclusion

The hypothesis that participants listening to music during exercise will be able to run faster and farther than the participants who are listening to music, is proven to be true.
 

Having music in the background makes time see to pass more quickly and it distracts us from pain and fatigue. Therefore, music can be an effective tool in training an athlete’s stamina, confidence and performance.
 

Also consider

The experiment can also be done by using slow or classical music to determine if the results will differ.

This experiment can also be repeated on other kinds of sports like cycling.
