A staple of my childhood. NSYNC will get you in the mood to feel the burn.
One of the most classic motivational songs of all time. There’s no one who knows how to spit a rhyme like Eminem.
When you’ve upped your weights another five pounds and the veins in your eyes are popping a little, just think, “Oh baby, it hurts so good!”
Can’t have a playlist without an obnoxious dance track.
5) Fun. – Stars
Fun. is just that – a really fun band. Some Nights is obviously a great song, but this one’s thumping bass and sparkling synth undertones are even more unique and upbeat, I think. Plus, there’s actual applause in the track, so you can pretend your efforts are being rewarded.
Girl power anthem FTW.
The Lumineers are known for their mellow, folky, Mumford-and-Sons-esque guitar, but the booming piano in Submarines is really the attraction.
Do it for Africa, guys.
Sometimes you just need to turn up the embarrassing Mom Music and make an absolute racket while you pump out those last ten reps.
