Workout songs to motivate you

Posted by on October 16, 2011

I was in the gym the other day and I was thinking how crappy the soundtracks these places play. Like love songs while pumping iron? C’mon now! I don’t have an Ipod or some kind of music player as research has shown that listening to music with earphones on can seriously damage your hearing. This explains why a lot of young people today have listening problems as that loud blasting music in the ear drums has prematurely wrecked the hearing/audio human devices in millions of people. But oh well, that’s their choice!

But in the event that I decide to relent and start listening to some music, I’d go fast and heavy. That’s why I created a list of songs that I would recommend when you are doing cardio workouts as they are meant for speed! Yeah, they could work for lifting weights, but speed is the key here. Even better would be listening to these songs during a sports game like basketball or hockey!

Here’s my list:

Godsmack – I Stand Alone

Methods of Mayhew – Going too fast

Mudvayne – Happy

Static-X – Bled for Days

Dope – Motivation

Dope – Always

Disturbed – Conflict

Disturbed – Shout 2000

Powerman 5000 – Drop the Bombshell

Linkin Park – Papercut

If you’ve ever seen the Japanese Anime, Initial D – there are some great Euro techno beat songs that come from that series and are just great to listen to as well especially for working out or even driving in a car. Here are my recommendations if you’re into speed music:

Pamsy – So Fragile

Symbol – Forever Young

Lia – All Around

Leslie Parrish – Save me

Leslie Parrish – Remember Me

Sara – Burning up for you

I’m sure that there are others but I like these ones the best. Enjoy the fast music at a fast pace. Keep that body moving!
