Just as barre workouts fuse Pilates, ballet, and yoga moves, this playlist features Drake, Charli XCX, and more artists you’d never guess work so well together!

Drawing on moves from ballet, yoga, and Pilates, barre has quickly risen in popularity to become one of the most beloved workouts. Total-body toning and lean muscle-building, barre exercises are also extremely versatile in that they can be performed at an individual pace, at varying intensities. (Get started with Barre3's Signature Head-to-Toe Sculpting Workout.)

Since barre moves can provide a lot of flexibility (pun intended!), we crafted a playlist that does the same, drawing on different inspirations-from pop star Kylie Minogue to indie band Monsters and Men-and playing with a range of beats per minute (BPM).

In terms of pacing, each of the songs span from 105-130 BPM to suit both low impact and more strenuous routines. Pick out a few tracks below and use those to set the pace, or work your way through the whole playlist, mixing styles and tempos all the way along. The choice is yours.

Olly Murs & Flo Rida - Troublemaker - 108 BPM

BORNS - Electric Love - 120 BPM

Nicki Minaj, Drake & Lil Wayne - Truffle Butter - 105 BPM

Kylie Minogue - Into the Blue - 116 BPM

AWOLNATION - Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf) - 120 BPM

Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks - 107 BPM

Charli XCX - Break the Rules - 125 BPM

M83 - Midnight City - 105 BPM

David Guetta & Skylar Grey - Shot Me Down - 129 BPM

Linkin Park & Steve Aoki - A Light That Never Comes - 116 BPM

I purchased these to replace my expensive headphones until I could repair them. Found, to my surprise, that they were more comfortable and have better audio quality. I'm partially deaf and spend a lot of time watching videos on my computer. Using these headphones blocks outside noises for me and allows me to listen at a higher volume... check more products here .... http://boseworkout.com
