Working up a sweat is tough work. And sometimes, the only thing that can keep you going is good music. Having the right tunes can make all the difference in how strong you push and how long you last. If you don’t believe us, just ask Maja Salvador and Enrique Gil. These stars power through their arduous fitness routines with their personalized workout playlists. According to Maja and Enrique, music has helped them to become unstoppable in the gym. Below, they provide tips in creating your own workout playlist.
• Tip 1: Stick to your favorites
But do try to mix it up from time to time to break the monotony. Ako, I usually go for what’s uso, but I also include some of my older faves.
• Tip 2: Decide if your playlist would be on shuffle play or if you’d like to sequence the songs.
Sequencing can be good if you want to match certain tracks with particular portions of your routine (ex. ‘pag intense ang cardio, dapat intense din ang song!). Pressing shuffle may be the way to go if you want to have less structure and a bit of randomness in your playlist.
• Tip 3: Don’t forget to include more mellow, down-tempo songs in your playlist
Sakto yan for finishing up and cooling down.
• Tip 1: Different strokes for different folks
In my experience, I find up-tempo and hard-hitting songs to be the most effective in giving me a big boost.
• Tip 2: If you’ll be working out for an hour, make sure that your playlist can last as long.
You won’t want the same songs to just repeat over and over.
• Tip 3: The lyrics can be a factor, too.
In the song Stronger, when you hear the lyrics about what doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger, you feel empowered by such words.
