In preparation for the Moscow Marathon in Luzhniki, the brand Aqua Minerale Active® in the company of the best Moscow DJs decided to find out what else, besides water, helps runners restore the balance of power during running time. So, during one of the Moscow races, a survey was conducted, the results of which showed that most runners cannot imagine their training without their favorite music. In their opinion, musical accompaniment improves mood, helps to keep the right rhythm and increases stamina.
The Aqua Minerale Active® team also believes that an effective and enjoyable workout requires the inspiring mood that music creates, so they decided to develop a functional playlist for all running fans. To actually test which music contributes to the best athletic performance, and thus form the perfect track list for running, the brand invited well-known health enthusiasts to participate in an experimental race.
Splitting into two teams, captains of which are DJs Vladlena Varlamova and Lukerya Ilshenko , popular lifestyle bloggers Anzhelika Timanina, Lyosha Terevkov, Sergey Kalyuzhny and Alena Esipova ran 5 km through the Tagansky Park stadium to specially selected music.
According to the results of the competition, the team of Lukerya Ilyashenko won with an average result of 27 minutes. Dynamic OK Go, Tiga, Moloko and calmer Portugal.The Man sounded in the headphones of the winners of the experimental race, whose compositions became the basis for creating a functional Active playlist.
Sports medicine specialist, teledoctor Alexey helped to record the results of the experiment Unnamed . Before and after the run, he measured blood pressure, heart rate, and calculated the participants' body mass index.
The indicators before the start of the runners from both teams were approximately the same, which indicates a good physical condition and a healthy lifestyle, which the guys lead. Lukerya's playlist was compiled in such a way that the pace of the tracks corresponded to the average heart rate during the run, that is, 150-180 beats per minute. Since endurance during a run is achieved also by proper breathing, which is easiest to tune to the music, we can say that the correct selection of tracks, combined with functional water, helped her team complete the distance with the best result, comments Alecthis Nameless.
