To have a great workout you have to be motivated and driven to push yourself.  In order to do this, you need to be in the right mindset and block out distractions.  Music is a great tool to help with this!  Having the right workout playlist, filled with motivational, upbeat songs, can be the perfect external driving force.

From the first moment you begin to warm-up, all the way through until the end, the right songs can keep you zoned in, avoid distractions, set the tone and pace, and help you to dig deep to push through to the finish.  For myself, whether it’s a workout focused around hypertrophy or max strength, I always have the right balance of songs added to my playlist that will help me to get psyched for a heavy lift or to push through a long, hard set.

Here are some of my favorites, check them out and spruce up your playlist.
