Running out of ideas what to write in my blog can be so frustrating sometimes and this time is one of those. I feel so inspired but I could not seem to put it into writing (maybe I am just reserving them for my Business Ethics papers that I am yet to write). Anyway, lemme share my Playlist to y'all. Hope this will inspire you come up with your own playlist to use in the gym and keep yourselves motivated to keep on and never give up.
NOTE: Make sure to hydrate and try to do speed intervals so feel free to arrange your playlist in the order that you are most comfortable. No excuse is good enough for you not to take care of your health. Start taking a “no-ifs,-ands,-or-buts-about-it” attitude toward fitness.
1. Erotic (Keyshia Cole) - 4:11 - for warming up/stretching
2. Circus (Britney Spears) - 3:12 - for brisk walking and a 4-incline/4-speed walk on treadmill
3. Womanizer (Britney Spears) - 3:43 - start increasing the heart rate 6-incline/6-speed walk on treadmill
4. Ecstasy (Darude) - 3:57 - increase incline to 8/6-speed; at 2:22 stay at 8-incline and increase speed to 8 (sweat should be breaking off by now)
5. Enter The Rave (Darude and Rob Zombie) - 7:00 - at this stage, you should have your heart pumping already, this is where speed intervals kicks in. Do 2 minutes at 6-incline/6-speed, 1 minute 8-incline/8-speed, 1 minute 4-incline/4-speed, 2 minutes 6-incline/6-speed, 1 minute 4-incline/4-speed. Feel free to customize, keep you body guessing...
6. American Boy (Estelle) - 4:05 - comfortable walking mode 6-incline/5-speed
7. Poker Face (Lady Gaga) - 3:59 - increase incline to 8/maintain speed at 5
8. Bodies (Drowning Pool) - 3:25- Do 1:00 at 6-incline/6-speed, 1 minute 8-incline/8-speed, 1 minute 4-incline/6-speed, 25 seconds 4-incline/4-speed to recover. Remember to pump your arms, do not hold on to the rail, and tighten your tummy
9. I Like It Rough (Lady Gaga) - 3:23 - brisk walk at your own pace
10. Booty Music (Deepside) - 3:12 - walk slow as you cool down
STRETCH to Flashing Lights (Lil Wayne)
An interval workout, which alternates between moderate and fast speeds, not only blasts fat, it also keeps the burn going. You'll knock off 9 percent more calories for up to 14 hours after 30 minutes of high-intensity exercise (Florida State University study).
