Hello 2017!  Workout Music Playlist

Happy New Year!  It’s 2017 and a fresh start for me fitness wise after the usual over indulgence of Christmas.  Do I feel at all guilty?  Nope!  Well just a little but isn’t that what Christmas is all about.  So now it’s time to get back to the Gym and getting rid of those few extra pounds I’ve managed to pile on. So I’ve put together a new workout music playlist to help me get back into the swing of things.  I’ve also put together a New Year Running Music Playlist, which is slightly more upbeat but just as good for the Gym.

Hello 2017!  Running Music Playlist

 

Happy New Year!  Time to get back to running after two weeks of a diet of chocolate, prosecco and Christmas TV Catch Up marathons.  I went into Christmas full of good intentions but by Christmas morning that had all evaporated and been replaced by a tin of Quality Street.  So a brand, spanking new year and a fresh start.  A cliché I know but I enjoyed Christmas, spending time with family and catching up with friends so I don’t feel guilty.  Now the challenge is to step away from the remains of the selection box and get out there running again.

Summer Workout Playlist 2016

New Gym Workout Playlist for the Summer is a must especially now that it’s countdown to my holiday in Cornwall.  I’ve got a new gym programme, attempting to do 3 HIIT sessions a week and if time will throw in the odd 5km run (weather dependent as I’m a complete fair weather runner).  So here’s my workout music for the summer.

Music can motivate you to push harder when training or can take you mind off a hard set of rep's at the #Gym Click To Tweet

Running Music Playlist May 2016

Running Music Playlist May 2016

I’ve been told that running music can boost your performance by up to 15%. If that’s the case then great, I kind of get that if I’m listening to something upbeat as it can seem like my running stride changes. For me, personally, I use music as either a distraction or to focus me on my run, especially if I have to resort to running on the treadmill. To be honest, I don’t always listen to music when I’m running outdoors. If I’m running on a beautiful sunny morning, through the park it’s nice to take in more of what’s going on around me and helps me to enjoy my run just that little bit more. Other times if I want to push myself more or perhaps get a run in the bag I’ll listen to music.  Running music can also make me push on just that little bit further.

We all run very differently, have different running stride lengths and at different paces. When it comes to music we are told to consider the BPM (beats per minute) of a song. After research it seems runners are recommended to run to music that has a falls on the 147 to 160 BPM range. You can actually calculate your own ideal BPM to suit your running pace; I intend to share that in another post once I get my head around it.  I generally think your running stride tends to adjust to the beat of the music so bear that in mind when you put a running playlist together.

When I put my a running playlist together I tend to go for music with a good beat and tunes I like after all who wants to run to something they are not a fan of?  I also like to put in what I call angry songs which are full of driving beats, maybe the odd thrashy guitar and something that builds; these are great for those hard parts of your run like hills or even the home straight when you want to push it a little bit.

Here’s my Running Music Playlist for May 2016

Do you like listening to music when you run or do you prefer to take in what’s going on around you more?  Do you have a Running Music Playlist that motivates you when you are out on a run?

Workout Playlist May 2016

Putting together a new workout playlist is always a great way to perhaps give you an extra bit of motivation at the gym.  I try to change my workout music monthly and hit the shuffle button so it’s hard to second guess what’s coming up next.  I generally like my music to be upbeat but I occasionally chuck a slow one in there just because I like that particular track.

I’ve put together an Infographic of my May 2016 workout music playlist, in case you are in need of a little inspiration.

All my workout playlist songs are available on iTunes and other online music stores such as Amazon.

Workout music can be a great motivator when you are exercising.  It can help take your mind off the a particular exercise, push you on to train harder or even get you to concentrate more.  To be honest I don’t always listen to music when I’m training but when I do I try and to mix up the music I listen to and am constantly putting together new playlists.
