70 Songs to Work Out To: Picks From My Playlists

By
CATEGORIES:
Motivation

If you’re looking for different songs to work out to, then you’ve come to the right place.

 

You know you’re into working out when you have your “go-to” songs for your big lifts, and when you even scrub forward to the right spots in the songs–right where they get the loudest and hit the hardest–and then go for big squats or deadlifts.

If that sounds ridiculous to you…you’re missing out.The psychological boost of music translates into the physical.

Studies have shown that the right music stimulates the nervous system and increases adrenaline levels while exercising. This can make high-intensity exercise feel easier, can help you keep up your pace while doing cardio, can help your sprint times, can improve your body’s oxygen consumption efficiency (really!), and may even increase strength.

Adrenaline also induces lipolysis (the breakdown of body fat into fatty acids that can be burned as energy), so it’s not TOO much of a stretch to say that music may even help you burn more fat while exercising.

As you would expect, the best types of music for exercise are those that, well, pump you up, not put you to sleep. Songs with fast rhythms perform best in studies like those I cited above.

Alright, with that out of the way, let’s get to the fun part. Below you’ll find 70 of my favorite songs to exercise to. I tried to include a fairly wide variety of genres, so I hope you find some stuff that you like.
