50 Work-Out Songs To Add To Your Playlist

Hey, people! Ready to burn some steel? Work dem’ abs?! I am doing all I can to exercise consistently. So far, so good, I’ve been consistent(not met my goal yet but I’m just glad I’m consistent). I get motivated to exercise with music. A good work-out playlist can turn a long boring workout session to a party rock. I decided to compile some of my favorite work out songs and some friends also asked for suggestions for their work-out playlist.

We are in an era where high tempo songs are the in-thing. So any techno songs especially by DJs like Calvin Harris and David Guetta is very okay. I am a bit retro in my choice but that’s how I like it. This list might be a little girly but hey, that’s what works for me! It’s also free from religious and lyrical content bias. Its sole aim is to make you work out. Here they are in alphabetical order.

  1.  Amerie- One thing
  2. Baha Men- Who let the dogs out?

    I saw some songs that are on MY work out playlist – Jagaban, Run the World. Try Skrillex- Bangarang, Chidinma – Emi ni Baller, even MC Galaxy – Sekem makes me want to move. Nigerian music is soooo nice for working out. Oooh, just thought of more – Zoro ft Flavour – Ogene, Orezi – Shuperu, Major Bangz – Gbankiti.
