If you don’t workout with proper music, you’re missing out. Your gym playing Lady Gaga won’t give you the mind set needed to lift that 400 lbs for another set and to push yourself to utter failure. Even worse you might get Lady Gaga stuck in your head.
So here are ten best songs to pump you up during deadlifting or just generally throughout your workout. Keep in mind everyone has different music tastes (some prefer all heavy metal , some all rap) so we mixed it up:
Drowning Pool – Bodies
AC/DC – Thunderstruck (Personal Favorite)
The way this song climbs and peaks is just epic for deadlifting and squatting.
AC/DC – TNT
Roy Jones – Can’t be touched
If this doesn’t pump you up, we suggest a trip to the doc to check test levels.
Survivor – Eye of the Tiger
Eminem – Till I Collapse
Approaching failure? Set this song, turn it up, boom two more sets.
Kanye West – Stronger
Kanye has lots of critics but the lyrics are great.
Korn – Coming Undone
Tool – Schism
Debateable but I personally love it. It puts me in a trance. Another great song that builds up. Be warned, Tool is an acquired taste. Also check out Vicarious by Tool.
Godsmack – I Stand Alone
Fort Minor – Remember the name
Nelly – Heres Comes The Boom
Faith No More- Epic
AC/DC: Back in Black
The Hives – Tick Tick Boom
Alice in Chains – Them Bones
Linkin Park Feat. Jay Z – Numb (Encore)
Audioslave – Show Me How To Live
Rick Ross – Push it
Buckcherry – Crazy Bitch
Velvet Revolver – Slither
Papa Roach – Last Resort
Nine Inch Nails – The Hand That Feeds
Immortal Technique – Point of No Return
Boom – P.O.D
Judas Priest – NightCrawler
Metallica – For Whom the Bell Tolls
Metallica – Creeping Death
Rick Ross – Push It to the Limit
That should be enough songs to tide you over
Pro tip: create 3 gym playlists rather than 1, put different songs in each and rotate between them to not get sick of the music.
