Workout Mix Wednesday

Posted by Lissa on March 31, 2010

Good morning everyone!  Are you drinking your coffee and perhaps nomming a piece of fruit?  Are you ready to head off to the gym for some weightlifting or cycling or elliptical-ing?

Need a hand getting that heartrate up?  Try these five songs:

  1. Hey Mama by the Black Eyed Peas — You don’t need a butt or legs like Fergie Ferg to use this song, but it might help you get there!
  2. Paralyzer by Finger Eleven — Rather than paralyze you, it’ll get those feet pounding!
  3. Crazy by Gnarls Barkley
  4. Gloria by Laura Branigan — ahhhh, the 80s!
  5. Last, but one of my personal favorites: Malaguena Salerosa, performed by Chingon.  I’ve watched the extras of Kill Bill II a bunch of times; Chingon’s live performance of this song generally makes me dance and skip about the living room, perhaps shadow-boxing as I go.  Sadly, it looks like it’s now only available on Amazon if you buy the whole album.  (But that album does rock!)

What’s in your headphones today?
