How To Create An Insanely Good Workout Playlist

January 26, 2015

Music, if used correctly, can enhance your workout.  Here are a few of the tricks I use to create a total experience for my workout.

Start slow.  No need to pretend to be in a place you’re not when you first begin to workout.  Many of us are dragging ourselves out of bed at 5am or just finished a long day at the office.  Play a slow song you enjoy to start warming up.

Bell curve.  Think of your playlist as a bell curve.  Start slow and work your way up.  Increase the intensity or tempo of your songs as time continues until you reach the peak of your workout, and then slowly begin to wind it down.


Expand your horizons.  Playing the same songs over and over again can get old.  Use apps like Pandora or Spotify to help expand your music horizon.  There is a lot of good stuff out there that hasn’t made it on the top 20 list.
