tunes that will make you break a sweat

Ever since my knee pain got bad and physical therapy started I have been slacking on the workouts. It's partly due to the knee pain, partly due to laziness - but either way it needs to change. Now that my physical therapy is winding down I am slowly starting to pick the workouts back up, which I am excited about, but also realize how quickly you can lose your fitness base. When the workouts aren't easy, I need good music to help get me through. Here is what I have been listening to during my recent workouts. 

When it comes to my workout music, I just need a good beat. It doesn't always have to be crazy fast or in my face, but it needs to be rhythmic - especially when I am running. Some of my favorite workouts songs are ones like Poetic Justice by Kendrick Lamar or the older, but never out of style Int'l Players Anthem. Plus, how could I not feature my current favorite, Too Much? Drake is just killing it on this song, but you already knew my thoughts on that. My workouts playlists also always feature my electronic loving, funky females like Banks, Lorde, CHVRCHES, and Haim. 



Enjoy.

Oooof I needed this. F'reals. I'm always listening to the same ol' music when I'm attempting to get skinny in the gym (it's different now that I need knee surgery, I tell ya), and I'm just unmotivated. I'm adding all of these. Gracias :)

Can't Hold Us is, hands down, my favorite break a sweat song. I made my dance barre teacher add it to the playlist for our class.

It's amazing how much music can influence a workout for the good or the bad

So I've never been a music person (CALL ME CRAZY!), but I'm learning how much of a different upbeat music can make to a workout! I'll check out these songs - thanks for sharing :-)
