My recommended workout songs...

Whenever i do my workout, be it gym or running, i NEED music. Without music, i feel like doing any form of workout or exercise is 10x harder. No wait, working out itself is already 10x harder for me so without music, maybe it should be 100000000000x harder. Having said that, i always set aside a playlist in my iTunes for my workout session. Even within that playlist itself, i realized that there are certain genres that gives me the extra boost when i'm running while when i'm doing a bit of weight lifting, i enjoy another different type of genre.

Now allow me to share a few of my personal favorite tracks with you. Hopefully some of these selections might be the solution to give you that extra boost whenever you're doing your workout. Most of the recommendations are based on either the tempo of the track or the crazy beat the song has that gets my adrenaline pumping. The ones with a (*) are my current overplayed favorite.

If you enjoy running and hates the little empty gap in between songs, there's a podcast you can subscribe to. It's mixed by DJ Deekron, (he calls himself the Fitness DJ...pretty catchy nick!) and you can subscribe for free over at Motiontraxx. Quality of the songs are pretty decent and he normally mix his tracks according to the bpm you plan to run.

That's as much as i can recommend for now. If you noticed, most of my recommended songs are either 'angry' or electronic/trance-ish like songs. If you guys enjoy the same genre of workout music like i do, then most of the songs should go well with your playlist. Not sure if i've actually ever met anyone who runs or workout while listening to Susan Boyle or Marvin Gaye. Speaking of electronic songs, I realized lately most artists are going into that phase. Even the classic group Aqua is returning to the music scene with a really catchy song called "How R U Doin?" and i personally think it's pretty good. I'm just waiting for Dr Bombay to make a comeback and we should be back in the good ol 90's era again.

If you guys have your own favorites, do leave a comment and share some great tracks.
