You always need a work out banger in your Spotify playlists. The key to these playlists are the tempo in the songs. You don’t need music that you will want to necessarily sing along to (because you’re in the middle of a workout. Instead, find some songs that you feel like you can bob your head to. Typically, rap is a genre that is popular for this tempo reason; however, there are other genres of music that can do the same job. I suggest grabbing songs from other workout playlists. Also, different sports networks, teams, and even video games have playlists that are unique and fire.
