Rockout Your Workout: 775 Songs to Rock Your Body

Here were the results from the facebook poll… Do you agree or disagree? (comment below)

I asked my facebook friends what type of music they liked to train to and ROCK was the top music of choice.

So, I did a little research for you to give you some more ideas for your next workout playlist – thanks to Fitness Magazine, Muscle & FitnessJog.FM, JasonFerruggia.com and Rock.About.com!

AND, I share some more suggestions from my facebook friends at the very bottom of this blog. Let’s ROCK!

A professor specializing in music and exercise once said, “Music is like a legal drug for athletes” and I have to agree – the right music can be more powerful than crack.

3 Ways To Pump Up Your Workouts & Tunes

topRock your workouts with these 3 tips:

 1. Save your workout playlist ONLY for your workouts. This will keep the music fresh, and make that time even more special!

2. Invest in good headphones (my favs are yurbuds). If you have crappy headphones that fall out every other step, or don’t block out outside noise enough, you’ll miss the feeling of being lost in your awesome workout.

 3. Turn the music on (and up) before you even hit the gym or begin your workout at home. This will wake up your mind and get your head in the game before you even start sweating!
