This workout playlist for strength training is full of great workout songs that will keep you pumped up throughout your workout!
One of my goals for the upcoming fall is not only to get back in shape but to build muscle. Somewhere in the past three years my muscles have just disappeared, and I would love to be able to hold my toddler for more than a few minutes without my arms aching.
When I think about muscles, I think of my husband and my brothers, especially my little brother. He’s never been real scrawny but the past few years since he stopped playing college basketball he’s really started to bulk up. Every time I see him I swear his arms are just a little bigger. He’s actually the one who first introduced me to protein powder and convinced me to start adding protein to my smoothies.
This past week while I was visiting my family I worked out with my siblings and it was fascinating to see how much goes into actual building muscle. I’m a cardio girl through and through, but I’m quickly realizing to build muscle, cardio isn’t enough. And neither is just exercise; building muscle really is a three-part program – exercise, eating well, and getting enough protein.
One other thing my brothers convinced me I needed last week was an update to my workout music. I apparently listen to too much pop and angry girl music when I run. They gave me some new song ideas that I probably wouldn’t run too, but let me tell you, they are great workout songs for strength training! There were definitely times when the song playing was the only thing that got me through the last push-up or two. Here are 25 of my favorite new workout songs!
