Week one of testing - Rock musicEveryone turned up on time and was easy to carry out the test. I used my personal rock genre c.d of Lost Prophets and played it continuosly throught out the testing.
Negative - the day before my clients had all been working and so their muscles were aching from the day before which could affect the end results.
Positives - I had a few clients which preferred the genre of rock and so hopefully this will increase their motivation which will show in the end results.
Week 2 of testing - popEveryone turned up on time and was easy to carry out the test. I played a pop c.d and played it continuosly throught out the testing.
Negative - Not everyone wanted to carry out my test and so didnt put a lot of effort into the test which will affect the end results.
Positives - Some of the clients preferred the genre of pop so hopefully this will increase their motivation which will show in the end results.
Week 3 of testing - rapMost people turned up and those who did on time, but russell was away at sports compettion and joe had an injury so they didnt take part.
Negative - Not everyone did the test.
Positives - most people liked rap as they said it was the lyrics which helped them gain motivation instead of the music itself.
Week 4 of testing - jazz musicEveryone turned up on time so the test was carried out smoothly. I used my personal jazz genre c.d of Cafe de Mar and played it continuosly throught out the testing.
Negative - No one liked the music so didnt listen to it. Music is calm and doesnt have a beat to get motivation from so this should show in the results. Everyone has been doing a specific training programme so their muscle were able to adapt and increase the weight lifted. Positives - No communication between the clients in test.
