10 Songs to Take Your Cardio Workout to Another Level

Cardio- it’s all about the music. Songs can either make or break your heart-pumping cardio workout. You don’t see many people jabbing and kicking to Celine Dion. Not that I have anything against her, her music is just better-suited for yoga {or sleeping}. Don’t worry -these ten songs are guaranteed to get you fired up and burning calories!

    i LOVE Rumour Has It and have it on my walking tracks BUT I have to skip to the next song when it gets to the slow part ’cause it really throws me off – FAV though is Tonight’s Gonna Be a Good Nite by the Black-eyed Peas AND I Hate Myself For Loving You by Joan Jett!

    I love getting recommendations like this. Thank you Melissa!

    Check out Supermassive Black Hole by Muse, Colors by April Smith and the Great Picture Show, 1983 by Neon Trees, Hey Ladies by The Beastie Boys, Burn it Down by AWOL Nation, Kiss with a Fist by Florence and the Machine, What You Need by INXS, and Sly by Cat Empire.

    I’ll check out the other recommendations in this thread. I stayed away from hard rock/heavy metal in my recommendations, but I do like to listen to that too during cardio.

    I dig all Ellie Goulding! For fast paced cardio, I really like techno/electronica. Normally I don’t like that kind of music at all, but it’s great for when I’m pushing myself, because it has a driving beat without distracting me with lyrics.
