I found some playlists in Spotify made by other people for working out. The songs I like from there I put on my own workout playlist.
I think it depends on the type of exercise. When I do yoga I like to listen to nature sounds of very soft and smooth music. When I’m running, I like something with a quick beat that my feet can fall into like a cadence. It makes running more enjoyable to listen to upbeat music, like pop! If I’m lifting or doing a HIIT routine, I prefer modern rock and alternative rock music. It’s more motivating and keeps the heart rate up. Whatever it is though, it’s all music I love.
The best music is your favorite music which is going to give more energy and positively to do the work for effective. White music or sound is also a good option to start with.
I love listening to epic movie soundtracks/scores. It makes me feel like I'm the protagonist 😀 One of my favorites is the song "What are you going to do when you are not saving the world?" By Hanz Zimmer.
Music that's soothing, familiar and not too loud. Country is uplifting and romantic so gs make my heart happy and calm
Personally I love some alternative rock to pump me up. Like “me against the world”, “warriors”, “ born for this”, “I’m so sorry”, etc. They have a beat which makes me feel like I’m a knight on a way to slay a dragon or a 90s Russian spy trying to fight off some bandits. Very motivational 😀 I also occasionally listen to badass pop songs, which motivate both by energetic music and lyrics. For example, “Do it like a dude”, “work, b*tch”, etc. Hope it helped!
