Louder music--more exertion?
The study appeared in the April issue of Archives of Environmental and Occupational Health.
This is bad for the exercisers--but what about the teachers who may be exposed multiple times a day?
Maybe visual stimuli should be explored. The sound levels are defininitely creeping up from a decade a go.
Classes can go as loud as 98 decibels.
I said wow!
I will say this--it drowns out the groans.
But if you are jogging on city streets, lour headphone music can be a hazard--and even in the gym or studio, you need to keep it down to a dull roar. You are going to want that hearing for a long time to come.
