One good thing about music - when it hits you, you feel no pain - Bob Marley

I'm not sure about you but one thing about listening to music while I work out is that it helps time pass that much faster. I even count my reps using tune minutes! According to Spotify's listening data that was recently published, streaming of workout playlists increase right after 1 January and reaches its peak around the 24th day of the month. After which, the streaming subsides and levels off on Valentine's Day. If you're looking to oppose the trend, keep grinding past 14th Feb! (keep reading till the end to test your music streaming skills!) These are some workouts you can try out, with dope curated playlists to accompany that grind (tried and tested, I assure you! 😉):
