MUSIC!!!

Possibly my second favourite subject in the whole wide world.. between Karaoke which I LOVE.. and my dirty little secret Poptastic disco I have in my car... YES I'm the one that you see in the traffic having a full on disco in the car.. so!?! Music is something that is emotionally charged... it can raise us up.. rev us up.. and remind us of something or someone and bring a tear to the eye.. *tangent* I'm going to Ennio Morricone in July and just listening to the music from the Mission gets me welling up! 


There's scientific proof that listening to music while you work out motivates you to train longer and harder because you're concentrating on the rhythm of the music rather than how difficult the exercise it!


So .. how to use this amazing gift to your advantage! A few nights ago a did a little twitter survey.. and personally asked all my fitness pals.. 'What song is a MUST on your work out track list?' A vast and varied response but all songs which would rev you up even if its just to get off your bum and hoover! 


Everything from Queen - I want to break free (which may mean from the treadmill!) to 'I'm sexy and I know it' LMFAO which just says the words in your ear that you really want to say out loud.. it spurs you on.. the fast beat.. that feeling that if you were in a club you'd be rocking it out! The right song can make a dull work out become your finest hour!

Thanks to my twitter pals, here's a selection of songs that get them all going .. so.. hop onto you tube, your iPod whatever gadget you have .. and get moving! You'll feel fantastic after it! I promise! And if you've got a song that gets you going please add it below!!! Its nice to mix it up!
