If Spider-Man can make your workout better, so can I.
There are way too many people I know who sacrifice all music taste at the altar of dignity (Blythe) just so they can have a good workout playlist. But kids, I PROMISE that you don't have to listen to Fergie just to get that sweet ass of yours in shape on the treadmill. So each week, I'll offer a cool dozen songs that have a good workout pace and won't make you incrementally dumber each time you listen. Because you shouldn't have to get dumber and lower your standards just so you can chase that six-pack ab unicorn fantasy.
In addition to providing some impetus for that dream workout, this may be a way to discover some new music or re-discover some old classics that you might never have considered "workout music". Or maybe it'll be music you already have and my inclusion of it on this weekly blog post will further validate your taste and you'll feel better about yourself, life, America, etc. So enjoy real hard and remember to stretch.
