    The problem I have with these workout song lists is they are always oriented towards the young crowd. It would be great to post a list for the older generation - music that we love. - 10/25/2014 12:39:16 PM

  • I too also randomize my playlists. I also don't mind adding and subtracting songs once in a while...if it becomes repetitive, it's less motivating. - 8/7/2014 4:43:29 AM
  • I pretty much do the same thing - 6/23/2014 5:57:45 AM

    I think the key to building a good workout playlist is to pick songs that make you feel good. They might not ever make a suggested list on a website or be something that anyone else would choose, but if they make YOU feel good then put 'em on your list! - 6/22/2014 11:06:51 AM

  • Good article - music can be the key to pushing through a workout when you want to give up. - 11/28/2013 6:19:16 AM
  • workout playlists arent just for working out... my job at work is ALOT of very repetative computer work lengths of time with very little human interaction. i listen to my workout playlist in the morning to wake me up. :) later on i switch my ipod to play all songs. - 9/6/2013 8:06:47 AM
  • "My" music will likely never be featured on a playlist other than my own. I tend to have a lot of Irish stuff, old swing music. The most "pop" I have is U2 (the bulk of which is from the 80's). I also have hours worth of music so it doesn't repeat often. I think it just has to be whatever works for you, but I totally agree about that last song being the big push/motivator for the end, particular when I was doing C25K stuff. - 9/5/2013 7:01:03 AM

    I copied all my favorite music onto my MP3 player, and put it into random mode when I exercise. I hate listening to the same playlist over and over again - it gets really boring. I don't exercise to the beat of the music anyway.

    This way, I get a mix of everything from ABBA to the Beach Boys to ZZTop, with a little Mozart and Wynton Marsilis thrown in for variety.
