Tip of the Day: The power of a playlist…. boy does it make a difference during a workout. Music can truly make a workout and today’s tip is one that I’ve recently discovered and really think would help my fellow LG Sisters! Create playlists based on your mood. Obviously, we all go to the gym to crush a workout; our moods, however ((lol such a woman thing)) may vary day to day. Some days, I race into the gym ready to take on the world and other days, I’m dragging my feet, holding onto the hope that my workout will lift my spirits and boost my energy. Create a few playlists with different vibes. For instance, I have a playlist that I call “flow” and it’s filled with Coldplay and The Goo Goo Dolls ((have any other Goo Goo Dolls fans pre-ordered the new album?! 3 new songs out already!)) – when I’m on that playlist I’m just in the flow, not really focused on music but just in a good state. I have another playlist titled “pump up” and it contains mostly EDM and fast beat songs. My other go-to playlist titled “bad ass” is filled with rap music. Playlists by mood has been so helpful in allowing the beat to charge me. Also, I too often found myself hitting the next button about 25 times in between sets, which is such a energy sucker. Playlists are the perfect remedy to that! Need a quick burst of gym motivation?? Download a new song or two… it works for me every time!
