Workout songs! This is just the mixtape I needed today! Thanks for the boost Jen!
I love music and I love fitness. I REALLY do love it, I know that seems odd to 90% of you. I’ve often said running or hitting the gym is my therapy. I’ve said the same thing about music too. So workout music must be doubly therapeutic right? Thing is, not a lot of my music “likes” always lend them selves well to a hardcore workout. Rock works, but guys in with long beards and oddly high voices (ie. my indie picks) do not. I tend to find myself listening to either heavy rock or rap or rappish hip-hop with some techno/dance/dubstep added in for good measure. A lot of the stuff I love to sweat to would not be something I really listen to during the day.
Here are five songs that may pop up on my playlist:
Galvanize- The Chemical Brothers
This one is my absolute favorite. It will give me a burst of motivation anytime I need it. I’ve hit repeat on many an occasion.
Eminem- I’m a Soldier
Hard to pick one Eminem song for this.
When is dubstep okay to jam to? When you’re on the Step Mill. It makes me feel like a Transformer.
Die Antwoord- Fatty Boom Boom
**Okay, this song…and all of their songs are NSFW** Likely one of the strangest bands I listen to and that’s saying A LOT. Also, love how crudely they pick on Gaga. Song actually starts at 1:55.
One rock song for you because you know that’s my fave. I left them out of the main list because this genre gets a feature nearly every week, and I couldn’t choose just one or five…or 20.
Pantera is perfect for lifting.
What do you workout to?
Stay positive & love your life!

Random fact: This may be the first year I’m actually lamenting my birthday a bit. I have adored my 30s so far, but sometimes getting older sucks!
