Summer may be pretty much over, but our gym memberships are not, and our motivation levels are about as stable as Will Smith on Oscars night. 

Never fear though, because a new study has revealed that listening to certain singers can boost your workout performance - improving weightlifting results by as much as  13%.

The survey found that participants who worked out to Dua Lipa recorded a massive 37.93% increase on average when it came to the amount of weight lifted versus shifting tin to no music. 

Those who listened to Harry Styles were able to lift 35.71% on average, while BTS songs boosted strength by 22.47%.
