How to Find The Right BPM for Your Perfect Running Playlist

How To Find The Right Bpm For Your Perfect Running Playlist &Raquo; Lovesurf 2021

Running to music can really boost your performance, but how do you choose the right playlist for your runs? The answer is in the music’s BPM, or beats per minute. This chart helps you find the right BPM to look for in a song depending on how you run.

To find the ideal BPM for your running mix, run2rhythm, a site that sells running mixes, advises you perform this test:

1. Run for 15 minutes at a pace you are comfortable with
2. If you are starting out this will be slower than if you are a conditioned runner.
3. During that run count your steps for 1 minute. Do this several times to get an average.
4. Then, refer to the chart below to determine the BPM you should choose.

Once you know the BPM you should be running to, you can find the right music and create the ultimate playlist to help you maintain a steady rhythm for your runs. You could also switch up the BPM playlists if you want a more intense run (166 BPM, for example) or an easier jog (150 BPM).
