Looking to crank up your workout? It's electronic dance time. EDM will help you keep a steady pace on your run (BTW, download these 10 songs for a speedier run) or motivate you to go Above & Beyond (pun intended) no matter which workout you choose.

Start with cardio: Get pumped with the Bloody Beetroots' "Chronicles of a Fallen Love." Take it higher with the classic "Levels" by Avicii, the soaring "Sweet Nothing" from Florence of Florence and the Machine, and finish strong with "Clarity" by Zedd. Turn it over to weight training or mat work with "Latch" and "Holdin' On," followed by "Barricade" and "Under Control." Cool down with "Summer" and "Peace of Mind," and get grounded again with "Colors" and "Ghosts 'n' Stuff." Your body and mind will be ready for anything, come rest or rage-fest.

Since 128 beats per minute (BPM) is the dominant tempo in EDM, virtually everything in the genre (and in this playlist) hovers within a few beats of this pace. The advantages of this tempo are two-fold: It's quick enough to keep you moving and has a consistency that'll let you slip into a rhythm easily. Now all you need are the perfect picks of EDM workout music to get you moving. Download ‘em below. (And now that you have your tunes picked out, it's time to learn how to create your own muscle-building workout plan to go with your music.)
