What is the best music for working out?

When it comes to making those workouts as painless as possible, the right playlist is key.

If you need validation or wonder why so many people have earbuds, a study found that listening to music makes hard workouts feel easier, encouraging harder workouts.  A recent study published in the Journal of Sport Sciences* came to similar conclusions about the use of music during high-intensity workouts. The researchers found that your playlist can make hard workouts more enjoyable and increase the rate of your workout.  So what songs are the best?  The answer is simple: your favorites. Whether you’re a sucker for Hip Hop, love classic rock, or get lost in cool jazz, all that matters is that you’re listening to music you enjoy.
