This Is What Solved My Extreme Bloating Problem That 4 Doctors Couldn't Figure Out

Minutes to a Healthier You . . .

Sometimes it's the little things we do to keep on track for optimal health that make a difference.

The next time you're starting to lose your motivation to hit the gym after work, pump up the tunes. Pick a song that's sure to make you want to get up and move and feel the music. Chances are that after only two or three minutes of tapping your feet, you'll be back on track and rearing to go. Even if you just need your spirits lifted, a good beat does wonders for the soul and it only takes a few minutes.

The song "Forever" from Chris Brown does the trick for me right now. What about for you?

Good old commercial pop does it for me at the moment... "whenI grow up" by the pussy cat dolls is awesome for picking up the pace, and Jlo and LL "Control myself"...

I love "Wow" by Kylie Minogue. It's such a happy, peppy song, it gets me wanting to jump around all over the place!

I like listening to "Girl Talk" when I work out. It's rap but mixed with older pop songs. I love it, and it changes up so much.

I agree, "With Teeth" is definitely a good workout album!!

Nine Inch Nails... "The Hand That Feeds" from their "With Teeth" album is AWESOME for working out, has that perfect pace and drive...particularly great for step and dancing, I find.

I get pumped by 'crazy b*tch' and 'how far we've come'. Best song for a cool down..'Damn Girl' by Justin Timberlake.

Madonna / J.T. -- Four Minutes the combination of the great beat (a mix) and thinking of Madonna's crazy workouts, makes me feel like it's the least I could do!! :)

When I do sprints, there are always a few standby songs I turn to on my playlist. "Shut Up And Drive" Rihanna, "Let The Bodies Hit The Floor" Drowning Pool, and "Lapdance" by NERD are a few of them. If I'm feeling rundown on the longer runs, I love "Going The Distance" by Cake.
