Workout Songs to Pump You Up

Posted on October 18, 2017


 

Do you look forward to workouts or do you absolutely dread them? Either way, having a killer playlist will be sure to help you power through. As the weather finally starts to cool down, it suddenly becomes harder to find motivation to hit the gym or the track for a nice workout, but we all know how crucial it is to stay consistent. So if you’re like me and want to cuddle up in your bed for the rest of the year, get up and don’t let the cold weather get you down! Download Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora or whatever you prefer and create the perfect workout playlist to get you pumped up!

 

Beyonce is always a go-to! – Her old stuff is great and her new stuff is even better. If you don’t have her Lemonade album, get it now! Those 12 songs will power you through workouts for months. Some of her greatest to workout to are:

  • Freedom
  • Flawless
  • Don’t Hurt Yourself

 

Kayne West never fails in the gym- His songs are sure to get you pumped and keep you pumped for the entirety of your workout. Anytime I do cardio or anything high-intensity, Kanye is always there to keep me going— some of his best are:

  • Stronger
  • Power
  • Can’t Tell Me Nothing

 

How about some oldies, but goodies? Sometimes all we need are some nice throwbacks to pump us up! If these following songs don’t sound familiar to you, just look them up… chances are you know them and they will get you pumped!

  • Sail- Awolnation
  • Show Me the Money- Petey Pablo
  • Lose Control- Miss Elliot
  • Gangstas Paradise- Coolio

 

You can never go wrong with a good remix and there are a ton of really good ones out there! They are made for a reason… to speed up those really slow songs that we all know and love. And what better way to get pumped up than listen to song that was made just for that. Some of my favorite remixes are:

 

  • You and Me Flume Remix- Disclosure
  • Pursuit of Happiness- Kid Cudi
  • Can’t Feel My Face- The Weekend and Martin Garrix

 

So if you are someone who dreads hitting the gym, make your active life a little easier and have a good playlist on hand. Music is a great way to distract yourself from the pain of your weightlifting or you long jog. Get in the workout zone with the right songs and power through that workout!
