For many folks, workout music is synonymous with dance music. While both will make you move, the former should make you break a sweat and the latter won’t always get you there. To that end, we’ve rounded up a variety of recent tracks that are faster than anything you’d hear in a club.
The mix kicks off at 140 beats-per-minute and moves up from there. Along the way, you’ll hear Julian from The Strokes covering The Velvet Underground and The War on Drugs tackling a Grateful Dead classic. Moving on to the original tracks, there are straight ahead rock tracks from Wavves, indie pop from Cub Sport, and a synth track with a retro feel from St. Lucia.
