Gym Music Mondays - 27.02.17
BY KUDI MARADZIKA
I'M HANDING MONDAY ITS' ASS BACK ON A PLATTER.
Music Mondays has changed to my motivation to get up in the morning on a Monday and head to the gym.
Now I hate waking up early but I have no excuse anymore, (in addition to the fact that I live right across from the gym now).
Here's hoping Gym Music Monday will inspire you to get up on a Monday and set the tone you want for the week!
YOU WON'T HIT SNOOZE!
Artist: Calvin Harris
Track: Slide featuring Frank Ocean & Migos
After those misinterpreted and alleged homophobic comments, Migos continue their upward trajectory. Calvin Harris provides the beat, whilst Frank Ocean croons on and Migos add lots of swag. Don't let the slow start to this track fool you.
Listen to it: As you do your cardio warm up and prepare to work up a sweat.
SADLY YOU TUBE REMOVED THIS TRACK ON ITS SITE=(
GET UP & GO!
Artist: The Chainsmokers & Coldplay
Track: Something Just Like This
I am such a die-hard Coldplay but find their mellow-vibe to be very specific to chill vibes only. Not so much with this track which is fresh and fun.
Listen to this: As you do strength training. Planks? Kettlebell swing? This is a great track for that!
GO! GO! GO!
Artist: Katy Perry
Track: Chained to the rhythm.
Never one to disappoint with her music video, this track has been around for a few weeks but I have been avoiding it until I heard it more than once. Now its on repeat on my iPod. Turn it up!
Listen to this: During your boxing session or as you do your squats. Anything really that requires you to dig deep and go-go-go!
Artist: Ella Mai
Oooh, nothing like a love-gone-wrong song. Ella Mai is a young musician from London (I tell you there's something in the water there). She's released a few albums before this but it seems this recent album just maybe her breakthrough album.
Listen to this: As you work on your arms. The steady rhythm will provide the count you need to keep up the movement for a solid arm work out.
Artist: Little Dragon
Oh man, what a sweet, sweet tune! After a recording hiatus, the Swedish band Little Dragon are back with such a soulful track. Lead singers Yukimi Nagano makes us forget, even if for a moment about any troubles.
Listen to this: As you stretch, cool down and spend a few minutes meditating.
Stay gorgeous, stay fearless.
Look good, feel good, think great!
Enjoy your week!
