Sculpt Playlist [1]

By The FIRM Master Instructor Nancy Butts

I love music [2] and have a TON of it from all genres. I adore every song listed below and hope that you do, too. If you haven’t heard them, look them up on You Tube! I stumbled upon N.E.R.D. out of a freebie bin from an auction we had at the office. You just never know when, where or how you will find a new band you love!

The playlist below is a great mix, in my opinion, of newer and older tunes. Each song puts me in a super great mood [3], builds up my energy and helps me push my muscles to the absolute max. That’s what a great sculpting playlist is for, right? I’ve also included a few sample exercises for each tune for fit-spiration. Enjoy!

  1. Vampire Weekend: Oxford Comma: Lunge, Biceps Curl, Side Lunge, Triceps Kickback
  2. Jennifer Lopez: Im Into You & Hypnotico: Dip (Reverse Lunge) Kick, Clean & Press, Walking Plié, Lunge on Step
  3. N.E.R.D: Hot N Fun: Standing Abdominal Crunch, Squat Hold with Preacher Curl, Squat with Abduction & Alternating Overhead Press
  4. Pitbull: Hotel Room Service: Alternating Sumo Squat
