7 Songs to Pump up Your Workout Playlist ...


What is about music that makes working out SO much easier?!2

Guest contributor Alyssa shares her favorites for a hearth pumping workout.

Is your favorite on the list?

Music is constantly used as motivation for working out, but sometimes a new influx of music on our workout playlists can give us the extra boost we’re looking for.3

I am constantly updating my workout playlist so I never get bored while working out, just like I do with my workout routine.

With the wise words by Hans and Franz from SNL: We just want to pump you up!

1. Eye of the Tiger- Survivor

Exercise: Running

Of course this list has to start off with a classic!2

What better way to spice up your workout than having a tribute to Rocky?

This song is perhaps the anthem for all workouts.

The lyrics are so inspiring and running can be difficult without inspiration.

Eye of the Tiger will get anybody off the couch and lacing up their running shoes!

2. Intro- the Xx

Exercise: Crunches

While the music video for this song features a man running, I find the rhythm more suited for stomach exercises.

When doing my crunches, I can go up and down to the beat and maintain an even pattern.

During breaks between sets, the song can still keep me in the workout mode, especially when I do stomach last and need to stay motivated to finish my workout

3. 22- Taylor Swift

Exercise: Alternating Deltoid Raise (Shoulders)

When everybody is asking how you got those amazing shoulders you can tell them your secret: Taylor Swift.

Her pop and country ballads are usually about heartbreak and missing somebody, but this song is a breath of fresh air!2

Whether you are 22 or older, it’s going to be hard to refrain from singing this song out loud when working out those shoulders.
