1. Muse – Absolution (2003)

To start off the top five unlikely albums you should try working out to, Muse appears to be the band that really gets you pumped up for a good satisfying gym session. Deciding which of their albums definitely does the job, the one which springs to mind is their masterpiece of a third album, Absolution. With rocking tunes such as Hysteria, and Time Is Running Out featured you are more than guaranteed to start off on this epic journey of physical endeavour guided by the voice of musical genius Matt Bellamy. He of course could not do this without the help of drummer Dom Howard and bassist/backing vocalist, Chris Wolstenholme. The final track which leads you onto the next part of my unlikely playlist is Stockholm Syndrome. Surprisingly, I had not actually listened to this song until recently, but heavens I was elated to hear how amazing it was – especially for when using the cross-trainer! It is from this that it can be confirmed Absolution is essential to kick-starting your exercise extravaganza of a playlist.

2. Marina and the Diamonds – FROOT (2015)

Marina and the Diamonds is probably not what would spring to mind when compiling such a list, but her third album FROOT ticks all the boxes in following Muse’s footsteps with their lively and energetic entrée if you will. Tracks including FROOT, Blue, Savages, and Forget go perfectly and are pretty darn addictive too! Marina Diamandis manages to put together a slick selection of music, allowing you as the listener to stay in fitness mode with a variety of dance/disco- influenced smashers. The title song FROOT is a joy to listen to while on the exercise bike for example. Seeing as mine is at the local gym and faces the window looking out onto the high street, this makes the scene more enjoyable to take in and watch the world go by. Similarly, Blue, Savages and Forget does the same. These upbeat songs help you to maintain the motivational vibe which is needed to complete your hour (or so) long gym time.

3. Hole – Live Through This (1994)

Hole / Live Through This

 

Live Through This is almost certainly not what you would immediately suggest when putting together this eclectic mix, but amazingly this album blasting out the rock/angst-filled vocals of Courtney Love fits the bill like a glove and fulfills its purpose if you are aiming to stress- bust for example. Some standout choices include Violet, Plump, Rock Star and Gutless – all an example of what makes Live Through This essential to your work out collection. Turn the volume up on your iPod and as a result Hole will deter you from being distracted by what is going on around where you are exercising – leaving you fully immersed.

4. Lissie – Back To Forever (2013)

Last but not least, Ride the Lightning is the best way to bring your exercise time to a close. Your playlist would not go amiss with some of Metallica’s finest work and what could be better than blasting out this mega mix released in 1984. Classics include For Whom the Bell Tolls, Fight Fire with Fire, and Fade to Black.
