{ playlist & get toned }

I've gotten some emails lately asking what's on my ipod when I'm working out. I have a pretty eclectic mix of Fergie, Gwen Stephanie, Jay Z, Britney Spears {yes, I admit I listen to Britney but ONLY when I workout :-) }, Justin Timberlake, etc.

I'm going to download this playlist that I found on Tracy Anderson's (celebrity fitness trainer with Madonna & Gweneth Paltrow as clients) website.

PLAYLIST:
  1. Come to me (Peace): Mary J Blige
  2. Jump (Extended): Madonna
  3. Beware of the dog: Jamelia
  4. Numb/Encore: Jay-Z & Linkin Park
  5. Give it up: Pharell Williams & Twista
  6. Little lover's so polite (The gray area remix): Silver Sun Pickups
  7. Don't stop the music (Solitaire's more drama remix): Rihanna
  8. Break the ice: Britney Spears
  9. Give it to me (Dance remix) (Matrix & Dapp work your body mix) Timbaland feat Justin
  10. Lose Control (feat Ciara & Fat Man Scoop): Missy Elliott
  11. Ring the alarm( Freemasons club mix): Beyonce
Speaking of her, she has a fitness routine & diet detailed here. Not enough food for me, but some good tips overall and a good 6 minute workout video recap on the main page (upper right hand corner) of her website. But then again, if it makes ME look like that, I'll give it a go! :-) I think I'll try these exercises this afternoon.

What tunes motivate you to work out?

* update - did the moves in her workout video - 50-100 reps and felt it burn. As with any training or health advice, take everything you read with a grain of salt and do your own research. I am in no way advocating for any of my readers to go on this diet or do this workout - I just happened to stumble upon it via Fit Sugar today and thought some of the advice & exercises were worth passing along!

okay, as someone who works in the fitness/wellness industry - I would never recommend this diet unless you are preparing for a body building competition.

Hardly anyone could follow that diet - way too restrictive. And, I have never heard of not using spices for fear of bloating and upsetting your digestive system.

Even if someone lost weight on this diet, they would have a very hard time maintaining it. I'd be curious as to what Ms. Anderson's credientials are.

besides no coffee or alcohol - no thanks!

Hi ~~ Yes, I would agree that this diet is too restrictive and not "enough" to fuel anyone for a 60 minute per day cardio workout PLUS strength training. I did do her abs, arms & leg workout as demonstrated on her video this afternoon and liked it and could feel it burn! And as far as her credentials goes, who knows! :-) Other than Madonna's personal trainer! LOL!

sorry, if I "went off", I just get tired of the quick fix diets instead of making positive lifestyle changes that can be maintained for a lifetime : )

She's ripped! I usually eat about that amt. but don't do 60 min. of cardio a day plus strength stuff.

I agree that people shouldn't resort to quick fix diets but I think the overall idea with this was workout daily (& to FUN music which will help with motivation), watch what you eat and do it forever hopefully! I'm certainly not advocating anyone go on a crash diet or anything like that. I think you need to exercise, eat healthy and take your vitamins! And whatever approach or method you use to achieve your optimal health is great!

I lost 50+ pounds after both boys following their programs and maintained my fitness mainly with Power 90 along with playing outside - I love to play!! Just something fun - I have ALL the programs so if you have any questions, holler!
