Music is a huge motivator during our workouts (obvs). But how do you know which are truly the best workout songs? Music enhances the entire experience of working out. Here are some ways which will help you filter your workout music list-:
Commence with inspiration:
It might not seem like it, but that first song can set the tone for the rest of your workout For most people, getting started is the hardest part, so kicking off with a highly motivational song like Katy Perry’s “Roar”
Blend genres and types:
Having a ton of different tunes to pull from will break up the monotony of your workout, especially if you are exercising for a long time. The best workout songs can be fast, mid-tempo, uplifting, nostalgic, or funny, as long as there is a healthy blend.
Your playlist, your choice:
Experts say that it can help to include a song that you have a positive association with. Maybe there is a song that reminds you of an exhilarating road trip you took years ago or one that takes you back to a time in your life when you were extremely happy. Marry your personal happy experiences with your playlist and recreate those memories while working out!
Do not get influenced:
Music is your personal choice. It needs to have a happy effect on you while you’re exercising. While the millennial police will try to smother you with pop culture-relevant options, you shouldn’t feel ashamed if you’d rather stick to your classics.
Marry your music with your intensity:
Build in your cool-down with music to make sure you do not skimp. Play calm music when you’re brisk walking or doing light crunches. Go full-blown during heavy-duty exercises.
The best ways to build enduring during high-intensity work our regimes-:
High-intensity workouts are not everyone’s ballgame. One needs strength, perseverance, and motivation to tackle such energy-driven heavy-duty exercises. But above all one needs endurance. Without having the threshold of bearing and building up high-intensity workout regimes one can often fail at achieving the desired goals even after long grueling hours at the gym.
Focus on crucial areas:
People often find their fitness niche and stick to it. It is advised to mix it up in order to build endurance: Marathoners should work on speed, and flat-landers should stomp those hills. Getting to that personal best means working on what’s most challenging.
Undulate to relaxing and unwinding music:
Could it be as easy as pumping up the volume? Listening to music has been shown to boost endurance performance while walking, so it doesn’t hurt to work out with some tunes. The mind-body connection is especially strong among endurance athletes, and any pick-me-up can help when the going gets tough.
The Old-Fashioned Advice!
When it comes to building endurance, nothing beats good old-fashioned aerobic exercise (think: jogging, walking or cycling.) So, make aerobic exercise a regular part of your weekly routine. First, choose your activity of choice, then perform for a minimum of 30 minutes.
To build muscular stamina, you need to lift weights. However, in order to place continuous demand on your muscles, you need to think beyond the standard eight to 12 reps. You will have to train yourself in such a manner that you get used to mastering high-intensity exercises.
5 Badminton tops to improve your baddie mojo-:

Here are some badminton tips to improve your baddie mojo-:
Badminton is a brain game, not just a hand game.
Don’t be fooled by badminton, it is quite a workout for the mind. The game requires constant thinking and planning, but as a novice, these things may take a while to develop. So when starting out, the best way to develop these skills is to make sure every shot has a purpose and try to keep an eye on as much of the court as possible at all times. Soon your strategy will fall into place. Your attitude is also a major part of your game, don’t go into a match thinking you will lose as this negativity will be reflected in your performance.
Warm up your body and mind
Ensure your body is properly prepared for the badminton game ahead. As badminton involves both stamina and agility you need to concentrate on these areas in your warm-up. Ideally, you could start with a gentle jog around the court or some skipping. Once your pulse is raised and your body is feeling warmer, stretch the major muscle groups, particularly focusing on the legs, back, and shoulders to get fully prepared for all the lunges ahead.
Master your foot game
You can measure your quality of footwork by observing how little noise your feet make when you move and land. The lesser the sound, the better you are at absorbing the pressure, and the weight of your body, and keeping your balance.
Get into the mind of your opponent
When you play a game, you have to constantly think about his game too, not just yours. Where are you getting points? What are his strength and weakness? How can you make him play what you want? How can you catch him on the wrong foot? The moment you stop thinking, you lose.
Grappling with grip?
When choosing a racket, the grip is crucial. Small grips are best for small hands and large grips are for large hands. When holding the racket, don’t grasp it tightly, have a relaxed grip. Having a flexible wrist will help you to perfect both your forehand and backhand shots.
5 effective sprinting tips-:
There are a lot of factors that go into sprinting. We like to focus on speed and its relationship to complete athletic development. It is important to understand that each of these drills is focused on a very specific element in sprinting mechanics. They are best used as an extension of the warmup to engage a higher rate of speed, or as a conditioning tool at the end of a workout.
Here are some effective sprinting techniques-:
Push your body forward:
Square your shoulders and hips in the direction of your sprint and brace your core muscles. Point your toes forward as well, and avoid turning them outward, as this will interfere with your stride.
The regular warm-up:
The harder you run, the more vital it is to warm up your muscles. Walk and easy run for five to 10 minutes, and include dynamic exercises or drills like high knees, butt kickers, and skipping to further prepare your body to run fast.
Focus on smooth footwork:
Land on your forefoot and focus on pushing off from your toes to propel yourself forward and keeping your feet flexed upward toward your shins. Running softer and landing quieter might help reduce injury, too,
Sync your arm and leg drive
Your arms and legs should be balanced: when your lead leg moves forward, the arm on that same side should move backward. When your arms swing forward, they should stay close to your body, and when they swing backward, they can swing to a more open position. Avoid flailing your arms, as this will throw off your balance and waste energy.
Your arms are as important as your legs
Hold your arms in a bent position at 90 degrees and drive your elbows backward to create momentum. The position helps to ensure that your movement and force travel in the same direction. It’s a more exaggerated arm swing than a jog, where your arms move through a wider range of motion with your hands coming up as high as your chin and backward toward your butt.
