Hard for me to imagine life without music... it plays such a huge factor in my enjoyment of life! Recently I've gotten into producing music through learning two new instruments - voice and guitar. So much fun, and so inspiring! I highly recommend!
Music also plays such a huge motivational role in workouts. I love nothing better than putting on my heavy duty Beats headphones and losing myself in the music during a run.
I'm always listening to the radio, and to other people's playlists for inspiring new music to add to my playlist. I have some crazy stuff on my list... huge variety in the genre, beat, intensity (Christina Aguilera, Fun, Coldplay, Eddie Vendder, Eminem - just to give you an idea. But somehow they combine into a playlist that really works for me.
Rather than just telling you about my music choices, I thought it would be great if each one of us shares just a little bit about the music we're listening to for workouts.
Don't read on to the WOD until you've put in at least ONE song that you like to train to - new or old - by the end of the day we should have hundreds of new tracks, if everyone just shares ONE.
1. What are some of your new, favorite tunes to workout to?
2. I use Shazam to identify new songs to add to playlists... How do you find your new music?
3. What genre would you use to describe your top workout playlist?
