Five Power Songs to Pump Up Your Workout

Ever since I was a young child, music has always fueled my moods.  My father being a musician probably had something to do with my affection for high energy tunes.  He was always tapping his hands and feet to the beat of whatever song was being played on the radio.  Maybe I genetically inherited his musicality, or maybe just picked up his habits through exposure.  Either way, music has always been a big part of my life and I wouldn’t dream of working out in silence.  Even more so, there are just certain songs with specific beats and lyrics that pump up my workouts.  Their energy is contagious and no matter what rep or mile I’m on, they seem to ramp up my performance and push me to completion.

Today, as part of the Friday Five linkup, I’m listing a playlist of Five Power Songs to Pump Up Your Workout.  These are five of my favorite songs that are always on reserve for my iPod.  I hope you like them.  And if you do, feel free to browse my other playlists that I post monthly.  And be sure to visit Cynthia, Mar and Courtney’s blogs to participate in the linkup.
