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?
