Mondays Music Moves Me No 100 more...

Exercise, the final frontier... I am sorry, I could not help myself, but for many people exercise is as evil as the Oakland Raiders are to a loyal Denver Broncos' fan.

We do everything to get out of exercising, because it ... well it is exercise.  So here is some music to get the blood flowing and get you to groove too.

Let's start with something calm and peaceful for our beginning stretches, nothing too rapid just peaceful and energetic too.

I fell in love with this song back in the 1990's when I got the C.D., it is from Robbie Robertson and the Red Paint People, and it is a wonderful song for stretching or meditation.  It is the Cherokee Morning Song.

Okay its' time to do sit ups and tighten those tummy muscles.

This is the Celtic Folk group Clannad with one of their hits, this is No Matter where you go I will Find you, from last of the Mohicans soundtrack, this is still a slow piece but perfect for both sit ups and starting out on the treadmill. 

To get the blood a flowing lets' get out there with Mr. Bill Joel and Big Shot!

Now lets' slow down the pace just a little while we lift some weights, and tone the body.

This is one of my all time favorite pieces by Pat Benatar, it was one of her first songs where she began to break away from being the tough girl with steel cold soul.  This came out in 1985 and was her Tropico album, remember record albums?  

So lets pump some weights as We Belong.

Time to cool down and stretch, you worked hard, those extra 100 leg lifts really got to you, I bet.

So lets take some time and cool down and stretch and relax.  

Bet you were not expecting to hear PINK FLOYD, Shine on you Crazy Diamond to cool down too.  It is one of their longest pieces, yet it is also one of their slower ballads too.  Perfect to untense those muscles from the work out you have just done, and you can meditate and get ready for tomorrow.

When you do this all over again, with Jillian Michaels as your personal trainer.  Til then, Shine on you Crazy Diamond.

Hope you enjoyed working out with me today, we'll do this again tomorrow at the same time.
