Music to Sweat By: vol. 3 - Intervals/Sprints Edition

I invested about £15 on new music on iTunes a few weeks ago.  I was getting tired of listening to the same stuff all the time, but also needed some more tunes for the elliptical and other activities for which I need to maintain intensity, if not push the envelope a little further.

As I listened to this list the other day, I found myself doing intervals of sprints on the elliptical in time to the music.  It seemed natural.  With exception to the first one, which is just a good warmup song, the rest overall have good, driving beats to keep you going with choruses or bridges that are more intense, giving you rhythm and tempo to push harder and faster, increasing your intensity and kicking tail in the gym.

However, there's one song that's missing because Grooveshark doesn't have it in their database
that I would add if I could:

Bullet with Butterfly Wings by Smashing Pumpkins



  1. Thanks for sharing these tunes. I am always looking for new music to add to my workout playlists.

  2. Try downloading Pandora Radio on your Ipod.

  3. Spoonful of Me, great suggestion but unfortunately Pandora isn't available in the UK. I used it all the time when I was in the U.S., but can't here. :o(
