My Workout Favorites!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Since getting my husband that Gym Membership (yes, I finally broke down and found a gym for $10 a month without commitments and signed up) I found that there are some major FITNESS FAVORITES that are a must for every workout!

1. A good sports bra.
-- this is a non-negotiable. I am around a 34-C, so I need something that's gonna keep the gazunga's wrapped tight during a workout. Around the holidays I got this New Balance brand one that I am currently in LOVE LOVE LOVE with:

2. A good music setup.
-- I generally need something upbeat that is going to rock my socks off while I sweating this booty off! Lately, I've been loving Pandora and the Lady Gaga station on there... but typically my 10 top artists I recommend to check out mid-workout for a mental reset/upbeat BEAST mode are:
1. Flo Rida
2. Ke$ha
3. Brittany Spears
4. Rhianna
5. AC DC, Metallica, or something 'motivating' if you're feeling feisty
6. 50 Cent &/or Eminem
7. Usher (though only his upbeat stuff, none of the baby-mama drama stuff)
8. Fun.
9. Blink 182, Green Day, Pennywise, or something punky
10. To really mix it up, I like to throw in something country since I was raised around country music, so some partytime Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, or George Strait, but only the upbeat stuff, non of the 'woe is me' junk.

Seriously - good music is a MUST.

3. Ice. Cold. Water.
-- This, I know, could be debatable. But, for me... in my workouts, nothing tastes as awesome as ICE COLD WATER. Luke Warm just won't do, and I am always concerned with staying hydrated. Ice. Cold. Water. I honestly just carry around a Nalgene with me.... I love my Life is Good Flowery one my Brendark gave me:

Anything else in my workouts will do - I don't care too much about must else... just my water, my music, and keeping my melons in check!

Happy Wednesday!

    Well, I agree with your list!

Gotta keep the ladies wrapped up!

LOVE my Nalgene bottle! Something about using regular plastic bottles just doesn't feel right.

How are you enjoying the gym thus far?

    definitely add some pink to your line-up and depending on where you stand with hip hop, i'd throw in some off beat stuff like christian hip hop- sounds random right? but the rhymes are wholesome while the beats are kickin so it's kind of like meditating and working out at the same time lol! try lecrae, kb, thi'sl, trip lee... thi'sl is a st louis homeboy and he's pretty good :-)

    Music is a must, gotta agree with you there. I currently am loving the Beatles station on Pandora. It's got everything, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones, just love it.

    Agree with your list!! I have been using I heart radio and I plugged in the song Titanium by David Guetta ft. Sia... love that station!! I also love ice cold water... I drink it much faster than room temp water.

Great list! emoticon
