Ultimate Training Playlist

posted on April 10, 2020

Music has always been a big part of my life. Growing up, I remember my dad letting me sit on his lap while we would drive down the road to visit my Aunt. I was only a few years old at the time, but I distinctly remember the songs on the radio, and he would be singing every word. My dad was one of four children who grew up on a farm in southern Delaware. He and my Uncles were very close growing up, along with his cousins and all of their friends. I’ve heard so many stories over the years about them jumping in a van and driving states away just to see Creedence Clearwater Revival, Steve Miller Band, The Eagles, Bob Seger, and many other bands play live in concert. Apparently that was the thing to do back then. I envy them for that.


As a young teenager, my dad and I would spend every weekend out in our garage working on our 1970 Mustang. We would still listen to those same songs that he continued to hold onto from his younger days. I didn’t mind at all, but I would always laugh under my breath, making fun of him in my mind. I had no idea that I would turn out to be the same. That I would also find those songs that I would hold onto. I’m 31 years old now, and although my taste in music has changed slightly over the years, there will always be certain songs that hit a little deeper and put me in a different state a mind, especially when it comes to training. Everyone knows what I’m talking about. Those songs that you can always go to for that extra push, when you need to dig deep for those few more reps or when that extra weight goes on the bar. It’s a hard feeling to describe, but it’s one that you feel down in your bones. Nothing beats it.
