We have given you a playlist in the past, but figured that it would be time for an update. Before unveiling the list, let’s identify exactly what makes a great work-out song for a guy.
Music usually tugs little strings of our emotions. They make us happy, angry, upset, etc. Therefore, when picking out what workout songs are best, pick songs that remind you of your motivation. Some guys think about getting ripped to impress girls before they workout, so songs about getting laid should keep you motivated. Some guys like angry songs about killing people to make them feel like a Spartan warrior. Others just need a fast beat to keep their adrenaline pumping.
FOREVER BY DRAKE
“Last name ever…first name greatest“ – Need we say more? This song keeps one thing on your mind, being the best. While working out, this song constantly reminds you to push harder, run faster, and take yourself to a whole new level.
STRONGER BY KANYE WEST
Much like Forever, this song keeps you pushing yourself to be more. Every lyric, every time the beat picks up, you are reminded to do one more rep and run one more lap.
SEXY BITCH BY AKON AND DAVID GUETTA
This song will remind you of the hot girls that will be fighting over you after you shred yourself to pieces. More than the amount of girls, the quality of them. Imagine the models and the girls dancing on the bar staring right back at you.
BREAK YOUR HEART BY TAIO CRUZ
Whether or not you admit it, every guy wants to feel like a heart-breaker. Much like sexy bitch, if your motive is sex and getting the girl, this song will definitely keep you going.
BED ROCK BY YOUNG MONEY
Few people can jack somebody up as much as Lil Wayne can. Our suggestion: pump up the volume and eye the hotties on the treadmill knowing that it is just a matter of time.
CRAZY BITCH BY BUCKCHERRY
“Hey, your a crazy b*@&$, but you f*^& so good I’m on top of it…” Yep, that pretty much sums up the way you’ll be feeling when listening to this song.
SHIPPING OFF TO BOSTON BY DROPKICK MURPHYS
We’re still trying to figure out if it was the Departed, Boondock Saints, or just the bass on this song that makes us want to walk up to a meat head at the gym and go for the kill.
HARD BY RIHANNA
Thing song definitely gets us jacked up. Then again, most of her songs do. So much that we just want to start throwing punches. Insert Chris Brown joke here.
TILL I COLLAPSE BY EMINEM
Much like the title, this song’s military chants and encouraging dialogue by Eminem give you the motivation to push yourself until your limbs fall off.
FREAK ON A LEASH BY KORN
I will gladly admit that this song softened up in my head thanks to Guitar Hero. When it came up on my iPod last week, it convinced me to stay in the gym for another half an hour.
ANIMAL I HAVE BECOME BY THREE DAYS GRACE
Maybe it’s because I am possessed, but this song will turn you into a demon. Bring out the inner beast with this track and show-up that jerk that keeps lurking around the machine that you’re working on.
