There are 54 beads on a Buddhist prayer mala. These are used for counting recitations and chants. There are 54 beats per minute in this song. Coincidence? Sure is. What, you're going through an entire mala cycle in a minute? That's crazy talk! Studies have shown the optimal number of mantras in a single set is somewhere between 15 and 20 anyway... so don't waste your money on the 54 or 108 bead versions. You'll be a lot better doing more sets of less reps. And don't forget leg day.
