lighter workout playlist

this playlist brought to you by the pirate and the parrot, circa 2012

I must admit, my favorite workout music is usually comprised of artists like Pitbull and Flo Rida . . . and it can be challenging to find "clean" music that also has a good beat. So today I bring you a lighter playlist - hope you enjoy!!

I posted a few basics on spin here, and this post by the fitnessista (favorite fitness blog) is also an excellent resource.

1. Counting Stars - OneRepublic
(warm up)

2. Cray Button - Family Force 5 feat. Lecrae
 (standing climb, standing or seated sprint during chorus)

3. Wake Me Up - Avicii
 (seated, fast pace, sprint during chorus)

4. Bright Lights Bigger City - Cee Lo Green
 (steady pace, add resistance about every 30 seconds or so)

5. Truth Be Told - Press Play
 (standing climb, keep adding resistance until it is very challenging)

6. I Feel So Alive - Capital Kings
 (two options: seated steady pace or rolling hills/jumps)

7. Church Clap - KB feat. Lecrae
 (standing climb, fast pace, sprint during chorus)

8. Eye On It - Tobymac
 (seated climb, sprint during chorus)

9. Who Am I Living For? - Katy Perry
 (crank up that resistance to a 9, hands behind your back - heavy seated climb)

10. Life - Beckah Shae
 (rolling hills)

11. Burn - Ellie Goulding
(cool down)
