The Ultimate Guide to creating a beneficial workout playlist
The story of my musical journey
The most beneficial playlist is crucial to having an energetic and exciting workout. Before my initial exercise, I premix my playlist; it encourages me to get hyped up and mentally prepared to put my body through physical discomfort. A composed list of various artists and sounds aids me to keep my mind listening to the music while feeling the burn!. Your routine alternates, so why wouldn't your playlist to make it not boring and mundane?
Hearing Lil Joh on loop tell me to "get out of my mind" will only make me lose my mind in real life.
I have to be pumped to get in the zone, and listening to tunes does that for me.
Like I said, we have to switch up our playlist just like our workout routines. When I first started my weight loss journey, I went through hell, doing what everyone else was doing, listening to a manufactured playlist hoping to get the same results.
I broke my own heart and learned that training is not a "one size fits all." There's no way to become overly active overnight.
Then I started to look at how I saw working out.
It is beneficial to take conscious steps in every part of my workout, from the way I genuinely feel to the music that gets me from my beginning emotion to my planned mood. My intentions had to change, as well. No more revenge bod thinking if I'm going to do it, it would have to be for me. With these factors in mind, this is how I create my playlist.
Mood for the day is a significant factor; how and when I wake contributes to assessing mood.
If I'm having a bad day, rock or alternative music will be added to release that tension inside. Korn to Linkin Park will help me channel in when I'm boxing, or it's leg day. These songs will be at the beginning, so I can just dive right in. however, my playlist cannot be occupied by Rock or aggressive music for the duration of my workout; I have to consider my mindset. I don't want to keep myself in that place for long. After 3 songs, I feel redeemed enough to segway into some Rap- I know, kind of still on the aggressive side-but I like easing my way through. From Nikki Minja to Beyonce. With these ladies next, I discover I'm gaining back my power! Rediscovering me and the Bad Bitch I am.
And takes me out of an obsessive mind that will only overthink.
Intentions are essential. On melancholy days, R&B and soul music, to get more focus on areas I tend to despise. I also go easy on myself; I know I can be my worst enemy sometimes. So, on these days, Musiqu Soul child and Aretha Franklin help power through, by keeping in mind that we are only here once, mistakes will be made, and hard times will pass. So your intentions today should be to make it great for tomorrow is not promised.
I can't just pick a couple of songs from my playlist because it varies from day to day; what songs will get me through my workout. Today I was feeling Happy; I premade my playlist with Justin Timberlake, " I can't stop the feeling." I kept that feeling going with Dua Lipa and Meghan Trainor, Beyonce, of course. Then to get overly pumped up added in some techno
deadmou5 and skillrex, finally back down to earth with more Nikki Minja. So I hope you find this beneficial when creating your next playlist. Even if you just wanted to know what music I was listening to, I hope you take some parts of my journey and apply them to yours. Happily get fit!
