We listen to loud music during our workouts. Most seem to enjoy it. Even if the music is their personal favorite, it seems to drowned out the heavy breathing and takes attention away from the pain. But is it good for us? Read Mary's new article and post thoughts to comments.
"Concerns about gradual hearing loss over time are of particular interest to us at CrossFit because of the tendency to play "ear-splitting" music before, during, and after workouts. I'll admit that this is the way we began way back then, but surely, being more enlightened, it need not be the way we continue, especially since the tender ears of the very young are becoming more and more evident in our gyms as are the more vulnerable ears of the very old."
