This Spotify playlist may just look like the Billboard Hot 100 from 2013, but it’s so much more than that! This playlist is scientifically proven to make you work out harder – without you even realizing it!
Brunel University psychologist, Dr. Costas Karageorghis has been studying the relationship between music and physical performance.
“When synching your movements to the beat of the music, increase the intensity of your workout by raising the music tempo by one or two BPMs beyond your comfort zone – this will increase your work rate with the added benefit that the difference in effort will be almost imperceptible.”
Did you know that there were also over 6.7 million workout playlists to create the absolute best soundtrack for your workout! Theses tracks were analyzed by popularity and guaranteed to make you work harder because of their bpm, style and lyrical content.
