Use the increasing tempo of this list to propel yourself up the stairway to (fitness) heaven

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
