The secret to the ultimate workout playlist

They say that music is life.  Life without music would be completely miserable and not worth living.

And they also say that for a long life, you have to exercise a bit more than you already lie about doing to your doctor.  You know, like actually getting out there and sweating it out.

Which is where having the ULTIMATE WORKOUT MUSIC MIX comes into play.

It really should come as no surprise that good music can lead to a good workout.  Even going for your daily 30-minute walk can seem faster and more pleasant if you’re jamming to some decent tunes.

But what type of music should you be listening to in order to really achieve the best you can from your daily routine?  It has nothing to do with what type of music you enjoy listening to, whether it be rap, dance, country, punk, or something else.

It all has to do with the TEMPO of the music you’re listening to.

Science has determined that the ultimate workout playlist should be filled with songs that run between 120 and 145 bpm (beats per minute).

So where can you go to see what songs qualify for that magic beats per minute interval?  Try checking out SONG BPM for their database.  Just type in the artist and song title (in the unmarked boxes, go figure) and click search.  If the song is in the database, you’ll have the opportunity to either purchase the song from Amazon or listen to it via Spotify.

Take the hit SHOEBOX by Barenaked Ladies, for example.  It clocks in at a rather easy-going 84 BPM.  But the site will also point you to the 153 BMP version, which is the toe-tapping, get-your-heart-pumping version that you’ll want for your Ultimate Workout Playlist.
