Trade in your tears for sweat with an invigorating workout playlist featurung hits from Beyoncé, Fall Out Boy, & more
In times of heartache, a good workout will help clear your mind and unload all the antsy energy and angst that can well up inside. Moreover, a sweat session will keep you looking your best, which will come in handy when you next brave the romantic fray.
In this playlist, we aim to make a similar exhange by highlighting songs that will help you convert relationship drama into physical fitness. (Meanwhile, you can punch out your aggression and Get a Knockout Body with this Boxing Workout.)
The list kicks off with a warning shot from Miranda Lambert and winds down with a sinister farewell from Lily Allen. In between, you'll find the mega-hits you'd expect from Cee Lo, Beyoncé, and Gotye—in amped-up remixes that sound fresh and feisty. Lastly, when you're ready to rachet things up a notch, press play on one of the brisk dismissals from Fall Out Boy, Elle King, or Boys Like Girls.
So, as soon as you're ready to make a change, you'll find everything you need to make lemonade from love's lemons below. (And take comfort knowing that as a woman, you'll recover from that broken heart faster than your ex anyway!)
