Fitness Tip of the Week #25 Jam While You Work Out

IMG_2267

Hey train2move fans and welcome back for another great fitness tip!

Lots of times when we work out, we need that extra motivation to get us excited and pumped to really get after it. Music can be that simple addition to any workout that just gives you the mental edge to push yourself a little farther than you think you can go. I find that sometimes I easily get distracted by surroundings when I am doing a tough workout, and the easiest way to really block out those distractions is to pop in some earphones and an ipod, turn on my favorite workout playlist, and rock out while working out.

You need to find a pair of earphones that are comfortable and stay in your ears well, especially if you like listening to music while you run. Also, there are some good arm band for holding ipods and other music players that you can get for pretty cheap. All you do is simply attach it around you arm, then run the ipod cable up your sleeve, and there you go, you’re ready to jam. If you don’t have an arm band, you can always get a pair of shorts with pockets and simply  keep your ipod in you pocket.

One thing I like to do is browse the itunes store or the internet for different workout playlists that people have created. There are some pretty good ones out there with many of the classic exercise pump up songs if you’re into that kind of music. You can either download those, or just listen to them and choose your favorite songs, then create your own workout playlist from there.

This week, try working out to your favorite workout music and see if it makes a difference in the quality of your routines.
