One of the things I loved about cycling indoors during the winter months was the workout tunes. I run outside in any kind of weather, and I don’t think it’s safe to run with my iPod. Because of that, I never get to run with music! (Hmmm. Maybe I should use this time on steroids to rock out to my iPod and lift some weights. Hee hee hee.)
But if I did make a workout playlist, here are a dozen songs that would always make the cut.
Tearin’ Up My Heart – ‘N Sync
Baby – Justin Bieber
Summer Girls – LFO
Like a G6 – Far East Movement
Blame it on the Boogie – Jackson 5
Where’s the Love? – Hanson
Party in the USA – Miley Cyrus (please note: this is not Miley’s video. This one is so much better.)
Blow – Ke$ha
Umbrella/Singin’ in the Rain – Glee Cast
I Want it That Way – Backstreet Boys
Who Says? – Selena Gomez
Thinking ‘Bout Something – Hanson
Yeah, that’s an awful lot of 90s (and semi-recent) teenybopper pop. Yep, Hanson made the list twice. Don’t judge me. You know you want to work out. (And seriously, click on the Miley Cyrus video. It’s worth it even if you hate the song. Double worth it if you love the song. I want to be friends with that guy.)
Do any of these songs make YOUR workout playlist? What are your favorite tunes to get you in workout mode?
