My Favorite Workout Playlist

I can workout without music, but it’s not as fun or productive.  I use the music for three reasons:

1. Drown out the distractions of everyone around me so that I can concentrate on what I’m trying to do;

2. Help to regulate my pace on cardio equipment and my breathing;

3. It helps me keep track of my exercise time without obsessing about the clock.

I’ve been meaning to share for a long time now, but just haven’t sat down to write out the post.  In fact, I haven’t really blogged about anything other than my Shower Thoughts and The Knitting Game in a long time; so here is something a little different:

  • Light Of The Morning by Band of Skulls
  • Ali In The Jungle by The Hours
  • How You Like Me Now? by The Heavy
  • Ramalama (Bang Bang) by Róisín Murphy
  • Bass Down Low by Dev
  • I Need A Dollar by Aloe Blacc
  • Hello (Single Edit) by Martin Solveig & Dragonette
  • Party Rock Anthem by Lmfao
  • Days Go By (Radio Edit) by Dirty Vegas
  • Orange Blossoms by JJ Grey & Mofro
  • Magic (Feat. Rivers Cuomo) by B.o.B
  • Gettin’ Over You (Featuring Fergie & Lmfao) by Chris Willis, David Guetta & Fergie
  • E.T. by Katy Perry
  • Tik Tok by Ke$ha
  • Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine
  • New Soul by Yael Naïm

I’m pretty sure all the songs except for Ramalama can be found on Amazon or iTunes.  All the songs together take about an hour to get through, and if played in the order listed it takes you through a warm up, steady workout and a cool down at the end.  I burned this playlist to a CD so that my personal trainer would use it during my session, and it turns out that nearly all the trainers at my gym loved it so much that it’s been playing almost constantly in the PT area!
