Using Music and BPM (Beats Per Minutes) to Maximize Calorie Burn


I don't know about you but music really gets me moving. As soon as I hear one of my favorite songs I just want to get up and dance. Have you noticed that when you are listening to music you work harder and faster when you hear a song that is more fast paced? Each song has it's own BMP or Beat's Per Minute which can help you keep up with the pace of your exercise. You want a slower paced BMP for warm ups and cool down's and a faster BMP for working out and sprints. A song with a steady BMP can also help with your endurance.

I wanted to go for a walk today so I did some research on some walking playlists with BMPs listed. There were some great playlists out there that listed BPM (Beats Per Minutes) but there wasn't a full playlist that had all of the songs I liked. I tend to move faster when it is a song I really like and know the words to. I wanted to create my own walking playlist so I researched some more and found http://walk.jog.fm/ This site allows you to search songs by name, artist, genre and BPM's. Search a song and the BPM's is listed right there with it.

This is the playlist I came up with.














What songs keep you motivated to move?

  3. Great idea to have websites with this information. I don't listen to music while I walk, but it's definitely good for pacing yourself

  4. Nice playlist. You have a variation from 60 bpm to a faster 130. I also like Titanium and Blurred lines. Maybe you want to add Get lucky of Daft Punk.

  9. That's a real nice mix. I agree about the beat effecting my effort, whenever I run I match up my stride with whatever song is playing. It's probably not too healthy of a practice, but as long as I get through it I'm happy.

  11. Music is key! Anything rock and roll is for me or fast moving pop. When I want to slow it down I change it to country.

  17. I got no where to walk around here, I miss living where there was sidewalks, It's not safe to walk out here in the country, drivers are crazy. But I do love this playlist.

  21. I never thought of looking at beats per minute. Listening to really poppy songs that I normally don't listen to really gets me going faster on the treadmill!
