If you don’t listen to music while you workout, you’re definitely missing out! The right music can keep you motivated and help you workout longer and harder! What happens when we workout harder? We burn more calories! Here are 5 of the most popular workout playlists on YouTube right now:
This girl power remix playlist is full of upbeat pop songs! It includes artists like Sia, The Chainsmokers, Rihanna, Coldplay, Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes. Upbeat music is great for keeping morale up! It’s amazing how much easier it is to run when you have a fun tempo to time your pace to! Who knows, you may even find yourself having fun!
The pop, EDM and dance playlist is another one that’s great for cardio and other aerobic activities. Artists like Calvin Harris, Katy Perry, Maroon 5 and Miley Cyrus will keep you moving and grooving! Whether you’re walking, jogging, running or dancing this playlist has got you covered!
My all-time favorite artist to listen to while I’m in the gym is Eminem. His music keeps me motivated, pushes me to work harder and lift heavier. This playlist includes music from Eminem as well as Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, Kanye West, Migos, Jay-Z, Drake and Lil Wayne. This is a great choice for your strength training days (Trust me, I know from experience!)
Every now and then you’re going to have those days when you’re just not feeling it. Sometimes, that’s okay. Your body may need some rest. However, a majority of the time when you feel lethargic, a workout is exactly what you need! Put in those headphones and tune in to this motivating workout remix. It includes music from artists like Camila Cabello, Selena Gomez, NF (another personal FAVE), Bruno Mars and Rita Ora!
