Songs to Pull You Through a Tough Workout EVERYTIME!
Have you ever gone to the gym and were so uninspired that you had to FORCE yourself to keep moving in order to get through your workout?
OF COURSE you have! You know what I'm talking about...
Some days it's a struggle!
I had one of those days yesterday. I picked up my free weights, walked over to a bench, did a quick set, and that was about it for me! I started rationalizing my way out, telling myself that doing one set was better than nothing, right?
All I could REALLY think about was how fast I could get through the workout and make my way over to KFC for some delicious chicken, coleslaw and some biscuits! YUM!
That's when I had to clear my head, look to my faithful iPod, and find one of those "special" songs that can pull you through a gym session....one of those tunes that provides you with an extra KICK, and may even cause you to thrust out an extra rep or two!
I do have a special playlist of these certain songs, but it's always good to find more songs that can inspire and pump you up!
So...I need your help...I am asking for suggestions. What are your songs that get your adrenaline pumping? I'd love to know so that I can potentially add them to my workout list as well!
I don't care how cheesy you think they may be. If they work for you, then that's all that matters!
In order to share and share alike, I have listed 10 of my favorite songs to jam out to at the gym. Each of these dittys have killer riffs that 'rock my world' upon first listen! I've even decided to rank them in terms of how "workout worthy" they are. Yes, many are older, but they still do the trick!
Please feel free to listen, and if you like, start using them yourself!
Best results occur when the volume is CRANKED UP!
