Make it even more fun with jogging music!
There is no better way for staying motivated and on track than combining your favourite music with your favourite exercise, using an mp3 or any other audio device!
Did you know that you gain the most out of jogging by running in a specific heart rate zone?
To recap once again, it is:
[220-your age] * 0.8 BPM (beats per minute)
→ What does this have to do with the music you listen to?
Listening to a certain type of music while jogging can either keep you running at the right pace, or divert you from it. This is why the BPM of the songs you listen to is very important.
You want to find the tunes you love listening to and that are in exact match to the heart rate you need to induce. This will make your jogging experience much more fun and efficient!
An example of a song with 150 BPM:
→ What music should I choose when I go jogging?
Let’s say you are 30 years old, and you want to be running at around 150 heart beats per minute. In this case, you should browse for the music that fits 150 BPM.
It can be any type of music – rock, rap, country, techno, whatever you like listening!
Fortunately, there’s a great free website that contains thousands of songs (any category you prefer) for jogging, ranging from 100 BPM all the way up to 200 BPM.
Browse the songs by setting your BPM and song genre criteria, and see what you get as a result. Then, listen to them on youtube or download them and make your jogging playlist!
I hope you find it useful – not only for enhancing the great “feeling” while jogging, but to ensure that you actually stick to the BPM you’re supposed to run at.
Let the music be your guide!
