This month's top 10 workout songs cover a wide array of tempos and styles that will complement an equally diverse range of workouts. For low-rep exercises that strengthen your body -- crunches, weights and so on -- you might start with one of the slower tracks from David Guetta or Flo Rida. For a cardio routine -- running, ropes, and the like -- consider one of the faster numbers from alt-rock favorites Bleachers or club stars Yellow Claw.

If the feel is more important to you than the tempo, there are tracks spanning 100-128 beats per minute (BPM) and a variety of genres. The mix includes the latest confection from Maroon 5, a remix of Big Data's crossover hit, and a collaboration between X Factor alumni Fifth Harmony and L.A. rapper Kid Ink.

There should be something here for every taste and routine. If you're looking for a few new songs to spruce up your existing mix, you're in luck.
