34 Songs to Bring Your Workout To The Next Level

By May 25, 2016Motivation, Move

Weโ€™ve all been there before. You turn on Spotify at the gym, getting ready to get that good pump on. You put on that gym playlist that you made back in high school.


Yeah… and then you hear the first millisecond of the song and youโ€™re like

penguins nope

Soon, youโ€™ve skipped through half the playlist and youโ€™re back to square one.

Have no fear! Today is the day that we end this tragedy once and for all. I have compiled this list of 34 pumped-up songs to get you amped while working out. ๐Ÿ™‚ Careful, you may feel like you want to bust a drug deal or fight a guy at a bar upon first listen — but grind it out during your workout instead!

You know those workouts that were just… Good? Today was one of them ๐Ÿ’ช ๐Ÿ’ฆ Practiced deadlifts (thanks to all that commented/DM'ed with pointers!) So I lowered the weight to 95# to focus on form. This video is the last couple reps out of 12, so it was a struggle but very beneficial to focus on form for today! To burn my body, I did light back squats (65#) immediately followed by the same weight but for front squats.. Legs were on fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ then ended with calf raises with 2 45# plates supersetted with oblique raises with the same 45# (my grip was fried by the end of this workout), <10 minutes of body weight abs, and a ton of stretching and rolling out… @alison_grooves inspires me that mobility is just as important as strength! Looking forward to not being able to walk tomorrow! ๐Ÿง Gym song (inspired by the boyfriend @reillypat24) : X Gon Give It To Ya// DMX #fituniversity
