Best Workout Playlist: Vol. I, Pop/EDM

It’s been a while since I’ve provided a workout playlist to jam to but I’m really trying to change that. My goal is to share at least one playlist a month to keep your rotation nice and fresh and if there’s a song you love and can rock to forever, you can keep it on your playlist and swap it out for something new. Music is so important for my workouts because it helps keep me distracted from how hard I’m working since I focus on the lyrics and beats. I’ve also heard that some folks like listening to podcasts while working out so I may dabble in that one day since there are some podcasts that I’ve been loving lately. But for now, it’s all about the music!

This is an eclectic mash up with mainly pop synth grooves and some EDM jams that are great for cardio and weight training. You can check out the track listing below and I’ve included all the songs in a Spotify playlist for easy access.

More about Udeme

Hi! I'm Udeme and I'm an attorney by day and a blogger by night. I dropped 70 pounds 12 years ago and health/fitness became a passion of mine. I live in the DC metro area with my "husby" although I'll forever be a California girl at heart. I love a good read, BravoTV, natural hair, anything fitness related (of course) and spending time with my family and friends. ?
