Music to Make You Move

It’s no secret that music can greatly impact your mood.  You may have heard of the “Mozart Effect” which states that listening to classical compositions by Mozart may enhance your brainpower.  Since the Mozart study was published in the early 90s, many other analysis have surfaced squashing these claims.  Yet overall, experts agree that listening to music we enjoy undoubtably makes us more alert thereby producing better results at a given task.  When it comes to exercise we need energy and a good cup of coffee will only get you through so many reps.  So why not utilize the power of uptempo music with a dash of inspirational lyrics to energize your workout? Personally, I enjoy weight training to some fast and tough hip hop, artists like Jay-Z and Drake.  When it comes to cardio, especially during sprints and interval training, I need my upbeat dance music.  And finally, a slow jam or two during cool down. Here is my current workout playlist. Download some new tunes, grab your Beats by Dre and get moving!
