HuffPost Workouts: All Beyoncé, All the Time

When I run, I like to feel like this:

Some days it's easier than others to channel my inner diva into a badass workout. But all workouts feel a little bit better with the right (read: Beyoncé-filled) playlist.

You can get your heart-pumping beats anywhere, but in few places will you find them accompanied by such motivating, feminist lyrics. Not to mention Bey is insanely fit herself, and oozes confidence in and love for her body. "I feel best when I'm not really thin and not really heavy, when I'm still curvy," she told SELF. "I really believe that everyone is supposed to be different, and whatever is a natural weight for you is usually what looks best."


These are some of my all-time favorite Beyoncé jams to break a sweat to. Give 'em a listen and let me know what you think!
