Whatever your reason to hit the gym – a chiseled six-pack, a tight waistline or that gym membership you bought months ago but never really used (no judgment) – you can’t do it without great tunes. If you’re struggling to find that fitness motivation, it may be time for some new workout music. You’re guaranteed to dance through your exercise routine with this playlist of gym-worthy Bollywood tracks.
Even though it explicitly asks you to keep walking, we’d recommend you don’t play this one on the treadmill (unless the treadmill is your thing, of course — in which case, go ahead!)
According to us, the soaring rhythm and steady beat of this AR Rahman classic was made for pumping iron, as you imagine yourself hitting the match-clinching six.
Sometimes, a gentle build-up is perfect for your workout. This song starts a little slow but will get you going once it hits the rousing chorus.
A fat thumping bassline. Yes. Autotune. Yes. Badshah. Yes. An endlessly reliable workout song for the ages? Yes. When you’re in the middle of a set, looking for that final push, this song gets the job done better than most.
This is a song you know your dad loves to listen to during his workout. Your dad might even argue that bopping to this track each time it hit the radio counts as cardio. The hook on this jam gives you enough time between each set to catch your breath before diving in the middle of that funky chorus.
Possibly created for clubs, ‘Party On My Mind’ now fills its eternal destiny on a gym playlist. This one’s for when you want to leave more than a few sweat marks on the bench press.
If we could fill this entire playlist with just one track, this would be it. Except then you’d get listening fatigue and giving up on working out, which obviously neither of us want. This electric, pumped up track from the Milkha Singh biopic, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag can give you a runner’s high even when you aren’t running.
Few things get you going like an evenly-paced Punjabi drum beat. Armed with that and an unmistakable mood-lifting vibe, listen to this once on your way to the gym and then again in the middle of your set for a happy high workout.
Why hear it? A thick beat to bounce you right over that 15-minute mark. Why watch it? To be inspired by how incredibly fit both Shilpa Shetty and John Abraham look!
When AR Rahman sings your “Ziddi Ziddi Ziddi Ziddi Armaan” on a charged electric guitar riff and perfectly timed beats, you have no option but to make your ‘armaan’ for a perfect body to come true!
