Step workout routines come in a variety of forms—some involve plastic steps, some involve actual stairs, and some incorporate games like Dance Dance Revolution
For most of these workout routines, the ideal beats per minute range is 125-134 BPM. I put together a playlist that starts at the low end and picks up a single BPM with each song, working you gradually through the whole span.
Along the way, you'll find a dance track by Wolfgang Gartner, a rock song by Guns 'N' Roses, a remix of a rock track by The Killers, and more.
Here's the full list:
Rihanna - Disturbia - 125 BPM
Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child o' Mine - 126 BPM
Fall Out Boy - Dance, Dance (Tommie Sunshine Remix) - 127 BPM
Wolfgang Gartner & Will.I.Am - Forever - 128 BPM
Enrique Iglesias, Pitbull & The WAV.s - I Like How It Feels - 129 BPM
Green Day - Know Your Enemy - 130 BPM
Kelly Clarkson - Since U Been Gone - 131 BPM
Fonzerelli - Spirit (Wanna Stay Here Forever) - 132 BPM
Three 6 Mafia, Tiesto, Sean Kingston & Flo Rida - Feel It - 133 BPM
The Killers - Mr. Brightside (Thin White Duke Remix) - 134 BPM
