If it wasn’t for a good playlist, I don’t think I would workout at all. I love music, it fuels me. I like to think I have killer taste in music. So much so, that I almost shared a playlist to go with this workout! But, as I added songs, I started to think, what does my playlist say about me? What will my readers think? It got deep, let me tell you. I added my first song, “24k Magic” by good ol Bruno Mars. If I was a player, who frequently wore a pinky ring, it would be my theme song. Pinky ring wearing, players…describes my readers well. But not really, so I vetoed that choice. Then I went to add a little Daddy Yankee, because sometimes that latin vibe hits and you just need to break out all of those hip shaking skills. But, then I realized that although I am down with booty shaking and the energy latin music gives a workout, I had no idea what the lyrics meant, so I thought, I better not inadvertently share something offensive, ya know? After about five songs added and deleted, I started to rethink the whole playlist idea. I decided to let the workout do the talking and let you choose, what tunes to fuel it!
Whether you’re tuning in to Bruno or Britney, you’re going to need a light kettlebell for this workout. I say light, meaning under 10 pounds, mine is 7 lbs. One thing I was taught about kettlebells, is a good way to keep your neck neutral is to keep your eyes on the horizon. That will keep you from putting strain on your neck and will help you avoid injury. I have a tendency to hold my head up, when doing some exercises and that tip really helped me correct that.

After all of that deep thought about playlists, I am dying to know, what will you listen to, while you do this workout?
