Based on the previous researches claimed that music has an effect on human boy in many ways, the purpose of this article is to study how different types of music affect athletes physically and
mentally. Plus, to offer an innovative way to help athletes relax, manage emotion via functional music mental training.
Based on the three mechanisms of the psychological effects of music（the physiological regulation, the principle of resonance, and the psychological perspective），the purpose of this paper was focus on
the way and effect of functional music mental training. It mainly adopted the following six kinds of experiment materials and equipment : POMS, BFS, Mental Arousal Scale for Athletes, Biofeedback 2000
x-pert biofeedback machine, Intelligent music-relax hypnosis treatment system II, Intelligent Auto-Relax Wi-Fi music training system of group.
This paper mainly completed following two parts of research work. During the first phase, 12 college athletes participated in the basic experiments, including male and female each 6, the average age
of 24.5 years old. In this phase, we conducted mental experiments in laboratory, demonstrated the function and influence of functional music mental training on subjects. Then we serviced to training
athletes during the 2nd phase. There were 48 teen diving athletes from provincial teams participated our study, including male 22 and female 26, the average age was 12.6 years old. In this phase, we
serviced to training athletes, helped athletes relax, and got a better state of mind by functional music mental training.
The result showed that during the process of relaxing music training, skin conductance of non-dominant hand and pulse decreased significantly, skin temperature of non-dominant hand increased
significantly. Compared the anaphase with prophase of this training, the 3 physical indexes showed significant changes. Compared the results of per-test and post-test, we found that participants’
mental state occurred significant change in tension, anger, and fatigue these three dimensions. During the process of arousal music training, skin conductance of non-dominant hand and pulse showed a
rising trend, but did not reach a significant level. During the process of personal performance music training, skin conductance and temperature of non-dominant hand and pulse showed a rising trend,
but did not reach the significant level. The results of 3 times binaural beat music training exhibited consistency. Binaural beat of brain wave traction had good effects to athletes’tension, panic,
fatigue and energy. As for the physical indexes, both of B, HB, pulse and respiratory quotient were different significant in 3 times of training, suggested that each time of music training could let
the players to relax, and alleviate the mental discomfort.
The following conclusions were arrived based on the result of study: The relaxating music training can effectively help athletes to alleviate fatigue in mental and physical, arousal music training,
personal favorite music training and active personal favorite music training can effectively help athletes improve arousal and pos
