A recent study shows that listening to up-tempo music improved the workout performance of cyclists.

1. Kern Kraft 400 – Zombie Nation (The Only Bootleg)
To start with we are going old school. German techno artist Zombie Nation released this track way back in 1999. Ever since then it’s been a stadium banger. Interestingly the blinding synth hook is actually a remix from the soundtrack for a Commodore 64 game Lazy Jones. We chose The Only bootleg because the crowd samples takes this banger to another level. Put this one on to feel and imagine the crown cheering you on as you fit in one last rep.
2. Swedish House Mafia – One
OK this one comes straight from the staples of EDM festival bangers. Produced by super group Swedish House Mafia (Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastion Ingrosso) this track charted all over the world. The searing synth link and constant rises are sure to get you heart pumping harder during you workout.

This track was made to work out to. Just put it on and it’s like you own personal trainer forcing you to go harder, faster, better, stronger…

5. Steve Angello & Laidback Luke feat. Robin S – Show Me Love
This 2008 rework of the Robin S classic brings some dance floor heart. The hard kick drums and smooth organ bass line make this a must have in your workout mix.
6. Bingo Players – Mode (Original Mix)
Another Dutch group makes the list. There is nothing like a hands in the air anthem to get your tempo racing, Bingo Players sure know how to pump it up.
7. Diplo and GTA Featuring Missy Elliot – Boy Oh Boy
A banging Moombahton beat, multiple tempo changes and a hip-hop breakdown. This track has it all. In this edit the breakdown into Missy Elliot’s hip-hop anthem Work It brings a bit of booty shaking grime. The lyrics are pure workout motivation to.

Trap banger in the house! Being an Australian site we couldn’t leave Flume off the list. This trap banger collaboration between the Flume and Hermitude brings the heat. The Ganz flip takes it to the next level.

After all these heavy basslines it’s time calm it down a bit. Seek Bromance was Avicii’s first hit and it’s a straight up hands in the air anthem. Put this one on as you wind down your workout.
