Workout Playlist

March 8, 2016

For the last few months I’ve been challenging myself to regular cardio and weight training. I’m not going to pretend that it’s been easy to keep this up… more often than not, I find myself squirming at the thought of finally arriving home after an arduous day at uni, only to have a strenuous workout ahead of me. Aside from knowing how good I’ll feel after I’ve completed it, I’ve found that having music playing in the background whilst exercising really helps me to actually enjoy working out (and distract me from the pain when every part of my body is telling me to give up!!) . 

Here’s a short compilation of tracks that have been keeping me pumped and motivated during those dreaded burpee reps and intense cardio blasts:

Magnets (V.I.P remix – ft. Lorde) // Disclosure
Soul Food // Mat Zo
Face to Face // Daft Punk
Girls Like (ft. Zara Larsson) // Tinie Tempah
Bang My Head (ft. Sia) // David Guetta
Last All Night (Koala) (ft. KStewart) // Oliver Heldens
Chunky // Format:B
Who Are You // Spring King
aNYway // Duck Sauce
Greyhound // Swedish House Mafia

Honestly so far, I’ve surprised myself at my commitment to a regular exercise regime and I’m so determined to keep going! Not only do I feel a lot stronger physically, but also mentally, and I recommend anyone to start working out on a regular basis if they haven’t already. It’s such a great feeling when you accomplish something that you never thought you could!

Peace out,

Music is a huge part of my life. I always have some on whenever and wherever I am; on the train, walking the dogs, in the car, even in my bedroom where I constantly have my radio switched on. My iPod Classic (I know, very old school) is my most treasured possession and I never leave the house without it.

Here’s a look at what’s been on repeat lately:

Shine // Years & Years
Weathered // Jack Garrat
Wings // Birdy
I’ll Be There (feat. Nile Rodgers) // Chic
I Am A River // Foo Fighters
Sovereign Over Us (feat. Beth Croft) // Soul Survivor
Forever // Brian Johnson & Bethel Music
Dog Days Are Over // Florence + The Machine
T-Shirt Weather // Circa Waves
Holding On (feat. Gregory Porter) // Disclosure
Today // Smashing Pumpkins
Fire Meet Gasoline // Sia
Go // The Chemical Brothers
Bloodstream // Ed Sheeran & Rudimental
20/20 // The Vaccines
