Hip-hop music is a popular choice when exercising because it has a loud steady beat and energizing style. However, it may not be the best type of music for all workouts. While hip-hop might seem to have a fast tempo, it is typically slower than other genres of music. Music tempo varies anywhere betweeen 60 beats per minute (BPM) to 200 BPM or more. Mpst hip-hop music has a tempo between 88-115 BPM.
Chosing the right tempo of music can be very important as your body will naturally move itself to that tempo. Choose a tempo that is too slow or too fast, and you may spoil your workout. For that reason, an approximate beat per minute has been listed beside each song.
Here is a basic guideline of which tempos are good for different workouts:
- Under 100 BPM: Slower paced workouts and during warm ups and cool downs
- 100 to 130 BPM: Walking and portions of your workout that are a little faster paced
- Over 130 BPM: Higher impact exercise and cardio
- 135 to 140 BPM: Power walking
- 135 to 155 BPM: Jogging
- 150 to 175 BPM: Running
- Over 175 BPM: Fast running and sprinting
Choose music that will gradually increase your tempo until you reach your optimum speed and then gradually decrease your tempo at the end of the workout. This will ensure that you are warming up and cooling down properly.
Below you will find different a variety of hip-hop music that is good for exercising.
