If you're like me, you count down the days to summer every year. Starting January 1. You may even go to the gym a few days a week in hopes that somewhere beneath those layers of skin lies a six-pack. Or that, come June, you will be able to hike up that massive hill from the parking lot to your office while toting your laptop, gym bag, purse and lunch bag without losing a lung. Somewhere between February and April is where I fell off the wagon, but I'm proud to say I've been back at it since mid-spring and have seen pretty good results. It also helps that I compiled a pretty flawless workout playlist that gets my adrenaline pumping even when I'm not in the gym.
It's a high-energy mix of pop, hip hop, EDM and, yes, trap tunes to get my heart racing and my feet moving. For cardio, I need super fast beats and an accelerating tempo to motivate me to push harder. One of my favorites is "Work B**ch" by Britney Spears. Just try it. You can't help but WORK. Also making an appearance on the playlist are Diplo, A$AP Rocky, Childish Gambino, No Doubt and even Lonely Island (I dare you not to break a sweat to their hilarious "When Will the Bass Drop")
Follow my playlist on Spotify! I've embedded it here, too, to make it easier for you to share and listen on the go. What's on your workout playlist?
