You already know that doing the same moves over and over will cause you to hit a weight loss plateau, but did you know the same is true with your choice of tunes? Running, biking, or doing anything with the same playlist on repeat can cause you to go into autopilot, meaning your not pushing yourself at every workout.

Update your iPod with the help of our readers, who gave us their favorite firm and burn beats.
