What do you look to when you need to get pumped up during warm-ups pregame or to lift weights? The most effective option for many athletes is to play music.
Football, basketball, baseball, hockey, track and soccer—yes, even soccer—players, can harness the adrenaline rush they trigger listening to these songs to receive a physical edge during competition.
