Many fitness enthusiasts swear by having an excellent playlist to help them get through their workout. Although some studies say that music has no effect on the quality of exercise, the right song can push you to workout a little bit harder or longer. In a scientific study conducted by Brunel University’s School of Sports, it was shown that a 15 percent increase in endurance is possible if you jog with the right music pumping through your headphones. Some exercisers regard music to be distracting during a workout and feel they do not push themselves as hard. It’s all a matter of what works or does not work for you as an individual.
This list is strictly opinion. Your best choices will depend on what genre you prefer and even on your mood. So try out these suggestions next time you need a kick in the pants to get through your workout, or find some for yourself.
