  3. Core Workout – “Take me out to see Junkyard (The Hee-Haw Song”): Focus on your core with exercises such as crunches, bicycle kicks, Russian twists, and plank variations. Play upbeat Go-Go tracks like “Take me out to see Junkyard (The Hee- Haw Song” by Junkyard Band to keep your energy levels high.
  4. Interval Training – “We Need Some Money”: Incorporate interval training by alternating between periods of high intensity and recovery. Choose fast-paced Go-Go tracks like “We Need Some Money” by Chuck Brown for the intense intervals, and slower tracks for recovery periods.
  5. Cool Down – “Backyard Band Slow Groove”: After your workout, cool down with some gentle stretching and relaxation exercises. Play slower tempo Go-Go tracks like “Backyard Band Slow Groove” to help you unwind and stretch out your muscles.


Finish your workout with a cooldown session, including deep breathing exercises and more stretching to help your body recover.
