We’ve done it before and we’re doing it again! Check out the best workout songs for 2017… thus far. (Yes, we know: it’s only April.)
You probably know by now that listening to high-tempo music while working out can actually make you want to move. It’s not rocket science! So, we have put together a great playlist (in our humble-yet-informed opinion) to keep your energy up throughout an entire one-hour workout.
Best of all, you can follow this playlist and take a listen by clicking the link at the bottom of this post. 🙂
Every workout should start with a warm up, so here are 10 minutes worth of songs to dynamically stretch it out to, so those muscles and fibers are limber and lubricated!
- Electric Touch by A R I Z O N A (101 BPM)
- Shape of You by Ed Sheeran (96 BPM)
- Rockabye by Clean Bandit (102 BPM)
Strength Training Workout Songs
Now that the blood is pumping and your muscles are all loosened up, it’s time to jump right into strength training. Here are 24 minutes filled with energy-boosting, strength-training tunes!
- Something Just Like This by The Chainsmokers (103 BPM)
- Fashion Week by Wale, G-Eazy (106 BPM)
- Issues by Julia Michaels (114 BPM)
- I Don’t Wanna Live Forever by Zayn, Taylor Swift (118 BPM)
- Symphony by Clean Bandit (123 BPM)
- Swalla by Jason Derulo, Nicki Minaj (98 BPM)
- That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars (134 BPM)
Cardio Workout Songs
After you get your pump on, it’s time to head over to the cardio section to get in your daily cardio. Why strength training before cardio? Because cardio depletes more of your glycogen stores than weightlifting. This causes you to be weaker and unable to perform at your best during your run, elliptical, or other cardio workout. We have chosen songs at 150-205 bpm to help you maintain a steady pace throughout your cardio workout. So, turn up these tunes and get to moving!
- HUMBLE. by Kendrick Lamar (150 BPM)
- A-YO by Lady Gaga (150 BPM)
- Chunky by Bruno Mars (202 BPM)
- Bird Set Free by Sia (150 BPM)
- Glow by Drake, Kanye West (160 BPM)
- Sleepover by Hayley Kiyoko (152 BPM)
Cool Down Songs
Now that you have sweat it out, you can cool down with these even cooler tunes!
We realize that everyone has different opinions when it comes to the music pumping into our ears. So find a playlist on Spotify (or your favorite streaming platform) that suits your training tastes, listen to our 2017 favorites or simply build your own! One thing is for sure, listening to music can help you perform better at every stage of your workout!
