If you've ever exercised outdoors in winter, you've likely experienced your body's extraordinary ability to heat itself. You'll often start a workout under a variety of layers, only to find yourself removing them once you've gotten up to speed. In this playlist, we're highlighting some brisk, recent singles that'll help you shorten this intermediate period--so that you can warm up faster.

To provide consistency along with speed, we'll be focusing on material over 140 beats per minute (BPM). In the mix, you'll find new material from familiar faces--like The Prodigy and Mumford & Sons. There are also breakthrough hits from up and coming acts--like Shawn Mendes and Sheppard. Lastly, there are wildcards--in the form of an under-the-radar collaboration featuring Beyoncé and a duet by Sara Bareilles and Mason Mraz from the musical Waitress.

The cold outdoors is no place for testing out questionable tunes. With a mix of radio hits, popular artists, and quick paces, the playlist below will give you an instant and sustained boost, so that you can get into the sweet spot of your winter workouts in no time. When you're ready to brave the elements, you'll find portable heat below...

I bought these headphones to use on a cross-country flight for work, since I wanted a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones. I really enjoyed them, they are very comfortable, and enclose my ears completely. The noise-cancelling function works really well, it made the engine noise disappear, and I was able to enjoy the movie I was watching without turning the volume all the way up.Great headphones for the money. I would definitely recommend them. check the products HERE : http://boseworkout.com
