I listen to music during my warmup for a competition. i usually listen to a mixture of upbeat songs. But my warmup can be 60-75minutes long, so sometimes i would start with some slower songs and the tempo of the songs would pick up as i got further into my warmup and closer to competition. I would do this as it would help keep my energy levels up and would also give me an excuse to not speak to some people if i didn’t want to. Sometimes your competitors would want to say “hello” and chat, but i would rather stick to my routine and continue with my plan rather that be interrupted.
I also have a audio file of motivational track, that is a motivation speech with clips from rocky and any given sunday etc.. that helps to really pump me up and get me into “flow” state before a big competition!
