Workout Music - The Guide

Just like I cannot dictate exactly what you should DO for your workout, I cannot dictate what you should listen to.
I can direct you to where to find music though. I'm very eclectic in my tastes and it's important to match your music to your mood, your workout goals and importantly, your music taste.
I can't tell you how many times I've kept running/pushing/holding on because a really killer track comes up in my playlist and I just have to get to the end...of...that...track (phew!)
So.
Here's some picks.
Also, have to give props to the Philips ActionFit Jetkit - earphones that stay in your ears while you're working out. Essential. 

Major Lazer is Diplo's reggae/dubstep/trap project. It's very bleepy, loud, banging and great for:
  • running
  • high intensity intervals
  • rowing
  • kettlebells
Listen to Major Lazer The Workout Mix on Soundcloud. Find Major Lazer on iTunes Podcasts


I love Sascha Fitness on Soundcloud for consistently reliable dance/electro mixes - they're continuous so you can just keep on going without going "Is that another 3 minutes down? I wonder if the next song is 4 minutes and 15 seconds... is this over yet?"

The last time I did my own vinyasa yoga practice (eep, over a week ago. Where is my discipline?!) I listened to Outkast. It's not for everyone, of course. I'd opt for something that connects me with the history and spiritual roots of yoga - chants, traditional Indian instruments - but also with a beat that enables me to get lost in the rhythm. Love Durga Dub by Playadusta on Soundcloud.
