Scientists Come Up With the Ultimate Workout Playlist
Sport Scientists at the Brunel University have teamed up with the music streamer, Spotify, to see if they can help in a small way to help keep those New Year’s resolutions going. There were over 6.7 million workout playlists to create the absolute best soundtrack for your workout. The tracks were analyzed by both their popularity as well as music that is scientifically proven to make you work harder because of their bpm, style, and lyrical content. The soundtrack features Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Macklemore, and Eminiem among others. Business Insider featured the playlist along with the BPM and what sort of exercise is proper for the song. 1.
