If you often go to the gym or near an outdoor park, you will probably see more than a few people
wearing headphones while they exercise. From the days of the portable cassette player, listening to
music while working out has become much more common. Here is a good workout playlist.
Having hundreds of albums worth of music at your finger tips gives you lots of options, but it is also
somewhat daunting. It can be rather humorous to see a guy or girl dressed in work out clothes
fiddling with their ipod, doing no more than searching for that perfect song to begin exercising to.
Making a workout playlist or CD is the first step to making sure one's workout and music go
together. While some people prefer to simply shuffle all the songs on their device, there will
inevitably be songs that just don't jive with their specific workout. This is the key issue with finding
good workout music.
The songs that people listen to in their daily lives may not be suitable for strenuous activities.
Generally speaking, songs that have fast, hard beats tend to work best for working out. This means
soft rock and most classical music are bad choices, while other high intensity genres can work much
There are exceptions to this rule. If there are certain songs that you enjoy and can listen to over and
over without getting tired of them, chances are these songs can be good to work out to. This is
because the brain derives specific pleasure from music it hears repeatedly, and those dopamine
rushes will go a long way toward an enjoyable workout.
There are also countless albums of music available for download and purchase in stores that are
specifically made for weightlifting, running, cycling, and virtually every other exercise one could
think of. These can be hit or miss, however. The albums themselves are usually scant on details, and
the genre of music may not be enjoyable to the purchaser. It's important to always sample the
albums before buying them, lest they end up unused. My favorite songs are on this workout playlist
One benefit of buying an album specifically designed for exercising is that these discs are usually
meant to be listened to beginning to end in the span of one work out. You can do something similar
by designing a playlist or mix CD that lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes. This is an ideal
workout time, and will give you a good indication of how long you've been working out. You can
also put less intense songs toward the beginning and end, signifying the warm up and cool down
Some people prefer listening to the sounds of their environment when working out. Still, a good
workout mix can do wonders toward helping one get in the right mindset. It's something that is
certainly worth trying so long as one has the proper music.
