Like most genres, techno music goes in and out of style in cycles. Right now, it's in-so we wanted to bring it to life in the form of an exercise playlist.

Kicking things off are The Chemical Brothers with "Block Rockin' Beats." This song is ideal for a warm-up track because it's got fewer beats per minute (BPM) than the rest, but it still feels fast on account of its frantic, namesake beats. To that end, it'll amp you up psychologically without forcing you straight into a sprint.

Once you've gotten moving, this playlist mixes a variety of songs from 120 to 152 BPM. On the lower end, you'll find a track from Daft Punk's debut album, The Crystal Method's signature song, and a multi-layered masterpiece from Wiseguys. In the higher tempos, you'll find a genre-defining smash from Fatboy Slim, an Underworld song made famous by the film Trainspotting, and a song by Zombie Nation that's more recognizable by its tune than by its name.

Whether fast, loud, hectic, or spare, there are big beats front and center in each of the songs below. Given the chance, they'll do a surprising amount of your workout for you-if you just turn up the volume and follow their lead.

The Chemical Brothers - Block Rockin' Beats - 109 BPM

Wiseguys - Start the Commotion - 120 BPM

Zombie Nation - Kernkraft 400 (Sport Chant Stadium Remix) - 140 BPM

The Crystal Method - Busy Child - 125 BPM

Underworld - Born Slippy (Nuxx) - 140 BPM

Daft Punk - Around the World - 121 BPM

Fatboy Slim - The Rockafeller Skank - 152 BPM

The day when I received the device, I load all my favorites music in it, This device built-in 8GB after I load 500 songs, there are still over 6GB memory left, I will load other lovely songs in future when I collect more. I often use this music player in two way, one is that I can plug the earphone into the earphone jack, listen to music by earphone, The other way is very cool that I strongly recommend to all of you, if your car has audio port, you could connect the music player with your car by audio cable, after that you could enjoy your favorites songs on your car.Check the products here: http://boseworkout.com
