If you love working out in silence, give me a "Heck, yeah!!"

** Crickets **

Yeah, that's what I thought. I don't know anyone who prefers working out without any audio entertainment whatsoever. Most people find that listening to music (or even to a podcast or a "book on tape") somehow just passes the time faster, and makes their workout more enjoyable.

Personally, I love cranking up the jams on my iPod while I workout at the gym - using the tempo of each song to push myself harder on the elliptical or to slow it down a bit during a slow interval. Some of my favorite songs to workout to are:
workout music, workout songs
  • Check On It - Beyonce

  • Womanizer - Britney Spears

  • I Can Transform Ya - Chris Brown, Lil' Wayne

  • Tambourine - Eve

  • Valerie - Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse

  • Hot Tottie - Usher, Jay-Z

  • Blow - Ke$ha

  • Show Me Love - Robin S.

  • Lay It On Me - Kelly Rowland, Big Sean

That's just to name a few!

Because I'm so fond of working out with music, one of my favorite Expert Blogs to follow here on Diet.com is that of Chris Lawhorn, a DJ and music blogger from RunHundred.com.

Every month he blogs the top workout songs that you should check out, based on votes cast at RunHundred.com. He even breaks down the beats-per-minute of each song, which is a huge help when it comes to deciding which songs should make it onto your playlist. The faster-paced songs will help you push yourself even harder during your cardio!
