Get ready to pedal!
After you guys loved our Christmas song playlist for indoor training so much, we thought we'd put together one in homage to the wonderful musical year that has been 2014.
We've tried to keep things a mix of chart hits and lesser-known (but equally as danceable) tunes so you will remain energised for the entirety of your workout. Good luck ladies. May Taylor be with you.
P.S You can find the a Spotify playlist of our selections at the end of this article. Minus Taylor, of course.
Royal Blood, 'Little Monster' (96 BPM)
We thought we'd go ahead and start with something a little dirtier than your usual chart fare, cause this song might have a slow BPM but it'll certainly get your blood pumping.
Don't go too hard, just warm up slowly while this song helps the fire light inside your belly.
Ariana Grande, 'Problem' ft. Iggy Azalea (103 bpm)
Ok, now we're getting a little more brisk with the stylings of Ariana Grande and her deliciously danceable 'Problem'. You'll be nodding your head so much that you'll forget your legs are doing any work!
The Juan MacLean, 'A Simple Design' (114 BPM)
By now you should find it easy to settle into this song by The Juan MacLean. If you can sing along to more than a line at a time, you're not exerting yourself enough. Crank up the resistance until this is suitably sweat-inducing!
Clean Bandit, 'Rather Be' ft. Jess Glynne (121 BPM)
What better than one of the biggest selling singles of the year to get yourself going? We recommend sprinting for the duration of each chorus – that soulful refrain will make it feel like a total breeze.
Azealia Banks, 'Chasing Time' (128 bpm)
This is a bloomin' tune and if it doesn't get your heart rate up and your cadence strong, then we'll eat our hats.
We recommend making this a high resistance tune, because you'll be so keen on moving that your legs will forget you're climbing!
Taylor Swift, 'Shake it Off' (160 BPM)
Tay-swizzle is perfect for indoor training. How can 'Shake it Off' not leave you completely pumped? Just be careful if you're on rollers – you may not be able to resist doing some arm movements and ending up on the ground.
It's time to put some power down on the flat before shaking that sweat off! (Sorry).
Mark Ronson, 'Uptown Funk' (115 BPM)
We couldn't resist it: Mark Ronson's 'Uptown Funk' is the perfect way to bring yourself back down from peak effort while still retaining the enthusiasm provided by the chorus. Hot damn!
MØ, 'Say You’ll Be There' (100 BPM)
This song may have bypassed some of you, but it's a cover of the Spice Girls song 'Say You'll Be There' by Swedish electro pop act MØ. And it is the perfect update to a girly, sing-a-long classic. Which makes it the perfect finisher to your indoor training session! Good job ladies!
