TOP 10 WORKOUT TRACKS FOR MAY

The last full month of spring brought an unusually high number of fast songs and remixes, notes Chris Lawhorn of workout-music site Run Hundred, referring to the 10 tracks that got the most votes from subscribers. Quick tunes naturally lend themselves to momentum, Chris continues, while remixes give proven hits a second wind.

You'll find 140+ BPM tracks—fast enough to take your breath away—from Meghan Trainor, Florence + the Machine and newcomer Katy Tiz. In the remix department, you'll find a club cut from Kelly Clarkson, a collaboration between Maroon 5 and Nicki Minaj and a version of “Uptown Funk” that dials up the intensity of the already boisterous track, which simply refuses to die.

Here's the full list:

  1. Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars, “Uptown Funk (Dave Aude Remix) – 124 BPM
  2. Katy Tiz, “Whistle (While You Work It) – 162 BPM
  3. Kelly Clarkson, “Heartbeat Song (Nebuer Remix) – 135 BPM
  4. Tove Lo, “Talking Body – 120 BPM
  5. LunchMoney Lewis, “Bills, “126 BPM
  6. Maroon 5 & Nicki Minaj, “Sugar (Remix) – 121 BPM
  7. Mumford & Sons, “The Wolf – 153 BPM
  8. Meghan Trainor, “Dear Future Husband – 158 BPM
  9. Natalie La Rose & Jeremih, “Somebody – 105 BPM
