Pump it up!

I think it goes without saying that you cannot have a good gym workout without good music blaring in your ears. There are times when I almost don’t workout because my iPod isn’t charged. It is a pathetic excuse, I know.

There has to be a National study performed by Blah-Blah-Institute of Australia (not guaranteeing its existence) stating that music helps you stay motivated during your workout. I’m not doubting that. The only reason I stay motivated for my gym workouts, apart from eye-candies-in-the-weights-area, is pumping music on my iPod.

Muscle and Fitness magazine in the US reported that weightlifters complete more sets when they listen to music than they would without that. Which makes me wonder, how many people do you see plugged in on their iPods while training? I would say about 97% in my gym. I feel bad for the other 3% who have to listen to their own feet thumping on the treadmill, or the awful breathing-noise of the person next to them on a bike.

So I thought I would share with you all my “Training beats” playlist. Now don’t judge my love for hip-hop music… Just download it.

  1. I don’t frequent the gym any more, but when I go for a run around the neighbourhood, I’ll usually thrown on some Rage Against the Machine. There’s something about angry political music that makes moving quickly while listening to it feel like victory 🙂

  2. Awesome playlist gorgeous. I definitely need music. That or the sweet tones of my personal trainer yelling at me. LOL
