Abstract


The purpose of this study is to examine whether motivational music selected by participants has an effect on maximal bench press strength and strength endurance (number of repetitions to failure with a 60% of 1-RM). 26 healthy male students with an average age of 23.92±2.05, average weight of 73.57±4.14 and average height of 178.57±3.65 who were having at least three strength workouts a week participated in the study voluntarily. The participants were grouped in two as experimental group and control group. The measurements of the experimental group were taken in two different sessions as with music and without music with 1 repetition maximum and number of repetitions to failure with 60% of 1 repetition maximum. The two sessions of the control group were conducted without music. At the end of the study, it was found that in experimental group motivational music was not effective on maximal strength (1RM) (p>0.05), while it was found to increase strength endurance statistically by 3.9% (p<0.05). In the control group, no statistically significant difference was found in both sessions (p>0.05). As a conclusion, it is stated that listening to fast music creates an ergogenic acute effect and it is recommended to use music during strength workout to have a better strength endurance performance.
