BPM- Fuel your workout through music

BPM stands for Beats Per Minute and did you know songs are rated by their BPMS? When picking songs for you iPod for a workout keep in mind the kind of activities you will be doing. Having folders labelled for different activities works best. The higher the BPM the faster the song, the lower the BPM the more mellow.
Studies have shown that if you choose high BPM songs for running or other high aerobic activities it can affect your performance .  For example when your almost done your run and feel your tank is empty and The theme song from Rocky or Eminem Lose Yourself comes on all of a sudden you can go that extra 5 minutes..
