Squat, Crunch, and Sweat to the Beat With 11 Workouts Set to 2019's Top Pop Songs
We've always filled our workout playlists with chart-topping pop songs. But in 2019, we started hunting down workouts specifically choreographed to the best songs of the moment. Little did we know what gems YouTube was hiding! You can try out a punchy ab workout set to Lizzo's "Truth Hurts," get your dance cardio on with "Hot Girl Summer," or burn out your whole body to "Old Town Road (Remix)" — and that's just the start. Please join us in reliving the top hits of the year, workout-video-style, which is obviously the best way.
Full-Body Workout: "Bad Guy" by Billie Eilish
You might think you're only going to watch this "Bad Guy" full-body workout, but it's so clean and mesmerizing, you just have to join in.
Ab Workout: "Sucker" by the Jonas Brothers
I know 2019 was approximately five years long, but let's not forget the momentous Jonas Brothers reunion back in the Spring! They dropped an album, fitness YouTuber Maddie Lymburner dropped a "Sucker" abs routine, and we dropped everything to do it.
Core Workout: "Circles" by Post Malone
Yeah, we know this song is pretty chill, but never fear: the core workout that goes with it is decidedly not. Prepare yourself for planks, mountain climbers, and bicycle crunches with Amanda Bisk, a former Australian pole vaulter and current exercise physiologist.
Full-Body Workout: "Boy With Luv" by BTS ft. Halsey
I'm extremely biased when it comes to a certain K-pop band and workout playlists (I may or may not have created both a BTS workout playlist and a BTS running playlist), but the over 800,000 views on this "Boy With Luv" routine back me up: it doesn't get better than an upbeat BTS song and a full-body workout.
Dance Cardio Workout: "Hot Girl Summer" by Megan Thee Stallion ft. Nicki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign
Let it all out with this sizzling "Hot Girl Summer" dance cardio workout from our fave, the Fitness Marshall, which includes plenty of booty-popping and REAL (read: CGI) flames roaring in the background.
Dance Cardio Workout: "Look At Her Now" by Selena Gomez
So. Many. Body. Rolls. By the end of this sexy three-minute routine, you'll be seriously feeling yourself and seriously sweating.
Cardio Abs Workout: "Truth Hurts" by Lizzo
I just took a DNA test, turns out I'm 100 percent obsessed with this cardio-abs combo routine. Get ready for mountain climbers and squats soundtracked to Lizzo's empowering breakout hit.
Ab Workout: "Adore You" by Harry Styles
TBH, we're still recovering from Harry Styles' new album drop, so this slow-burning "Adore You" ab workout is just what we need to keep our obsession alive and well.
Full-Body Workout: "Old Town Road (Remix) by Lil Nas X feat. Billy Ray Cyrus
Ah, "Old Town Road (Remix)." Is it country? Is it pop? Is it rap? All we know is it's a bop and it was made for a cardio workout like this one. Slap on your cowboy hat and let's do this.
"Señorita" by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello
Camila and Shawn's collab was basically the sultriest song of the Summer, and this smooth, perfectly-choreographed core routine is the perfect workout to go with it.
Dance Cardio Workout: "Good as Hell" by Lizzo feat. Ariana Grande
One more Lizzo routine for the road, because baby how you feelin'? Good as hell, probably, once you hit play on this dance-like-no-one's-watching cardio workout.
