50 Workout Songs to Add to Your Playlist

By , SparkPeople Blogger
We've all been there: You're only halfway through your workout, and you feel the fatigue setting in. Your lungs are working overtime, your muscles are begging for a break and you're starting to bargain with yourself: "I'll just call it quits now and eat a little less at dinner," you think. And then, just as you're about to stop the treadmill, put the weights back in the rack or cut your run short, it happens.
 
That song comes on.
 
You know the one: that song that sends the adrenaline pumping through your veins, making it virtually impossible to NOT move. You might find yourself running or walking a little faster, maybe lifting a little heavier or a little longer, suddenly feeling powerful enough to push through the pain and discover the rewards on the other side.
 
There's no denying the magic of music as a motivator, which is why so many people sport earbuds at the gym. A carefully curated playlist can mean the difference between cutting a workout short and going that extra mile.
 
To help get you started, we've compiled a list of some of "those songs" to keep you going the extra mile. These are just some of the energy-boosting, booty-kicking tunes that can keep you moving and grooving.

Also what we in the south refer to as driving songs, pretty much anything Southern or Classic Rock is enough to get a body moving. A couple of my favorites, "Let It Roll" - Little Feat, "Dixie Chicken" - Little Feat, "Home" - Marc Broussard, anything by The Outlaws, Marshall Tucker, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc. Rock music from the seventies is the best...lucky to have grown up during that era.

“I’m the one” by DJ Khalid and Justin Bieber Report
