Last week, I talked about an idea that I came up with for a way to improve workout speeds. If you missed the post, here is a link to it:
I promised that I would come back this week and give you a list of songs from my iPod library that matched the Presto tempo of 192 BPM (beats per minute) or higher. Here is that list:
There were more songs that could have been added, but I knew I had more than enough to get me through a typical run, so I stopped with 49.
Now in the event you are thinking, "Well, that's really nice Lisa, thanks for thinking of us, but I personally don't like any of those bands, so how can this possibly help me?", I am prepared. Here are 3 videos demonstrating 192, 200 and 208 BPM. And to tie back to my post from last week, I am using "Fell In Love with a Girl" by The White Stripes so you can see how to best put your songs through the metronome rhythm test.
Alternatively, but not nearly as interestingly, you can use an online metronome. Yes it is true, not only is there an online metronome, there are multiple online metronomes. Here's one example:
If that wasn't the icing on the cake, it turns out that somebody figured this out long ago and I am a day late and a dollar short to inventing the first training program specifically structured around metronome speeds.
