Smarter Health: Awesome New Tunes for Your Workout

Posted by   + Show Post


Have I mentioned that I am trying to get back into a good, healthy exercise routine? It's tough for me. Not really hopping on the treadmill or lacing up the sneakers, but when I hit about the 17-minute mark, I tend to waiver and want to stop. Is it that I am bored? Is it that I'm running out of energy? I'm not sure. But what helps me push through is a song. An upbeat, get-that-spring in my step, jam-out tune. I have an armband to hold my iPod, but what to put on that workout playlist?

I like all kinds of music, from classical to rap. I dig it all, but obviously, those soothing tunes I love from certain artists just don't hack it when it comes to really getting me going. I've got a few go-tos tunes: some oldies, some newbies...all will put some oomph in your workout!  

Adele - Rumor Has It

Jessie J - Price Tag and Do It Like A Dude

Colbie Caillat - Brighter Than The Sun

Nicki Minaj - Super Bass

LMFAO - Sexy and I Know It (the clean version, of course!)

Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc.

Survivor - Eye of The Tiger (yup, the one from Rocky III)

The Go-Gos - Vacation and We've Got The Beat

Vampire Weekend - Bryn and Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa

Black Eyed Peas - Boom Boom Pow

Madonna - Ray Of Light

Taio Cruz - Dynomite

Pitbull - I Know You Want Me

OutKast - Hey Ya!

EMF - Unbelievable

Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch - Good Vibrations

What is on your iPod or music list when you exercise? What song always get you bouncing when it comes on the radio?

well don't have an ipod or such & sadly don't work out like i should.  i walk but the kids are with me so no music then.  i do boogie when i clean though.  i listen to a variety; ska, punk, rock-a-billy, pretty much anything with a good beat.
