The Be Well Philly team typically masterminds your weekly workout playlists, but every now and then, we like to mix it up by asking a guest curator to share his or her favorite songs. Today, Flywheel Philadelphia instructor Emily Rothrock picks 25 songs to keep you spinning, running, boxing—whatever!
Here’s what she has to say:
I’ve put together a pumped-up workout mix full of songs right around 130 beats per minute At Flywheel, we ride to the beat of the music and vary the bpm counts of each song to match the resistance level that we want our riders to achieve. For other workouts, like a long run or even tabata training, it’s important for the beat of the music to stay consistent so your pace stays consistent. Each song on this playlist hovers right around that 130 bpm range so you can put it on shuffle and just zone out with a steady rhythm.
If you’re looking to spice things up during the run, try this trick: Run at a moderate pace during the verses of the songs and push yourself to breathless during the choruses. Most songs have about three to four 30-second choruses—instant interval training!
*We update this playlist each and every Friday with a slew of new songs to keep you grooving. Follow it on Spotify so you never miss a beat.
