Running Music: The 10 Best Remixes for Working Out

The are two main advantages to a good remix:  First, the DJ or producer typically favors a heavy beat, which is great for workouts. And second, it gives you an excuse to dust off a once-loved song that you played to death.

This month's playlist highlights 10 of the best recent remixes. You'll find "You da One" by Rihanna totally reinvented and a version of Breathe Carolina's "Blackout" that replaces the raging synths with jazzy ones.  Plus, you'll be able to hear what a 1990s-era piano loop does to Cobra Starship's "You Make Me Feel..." and what The Wanted's "Glad You Came" sounds like with a harder edge.

Here's the full list:

Avicii - Levels (Skrillex Remix) - 142 BPM

Flo Rida & Sia - Wild Ones (Project 46 Remix) - 126 BPM

Breathe Carolina - Blackout (Wideboys Remix) - 128 BPM
