PureWow Playlist: Strength Training Edition
For when you're up in the gym, just workin' on your fitness
Last week we shared the soundtrack to our perfect run. This week? Strength training, baby. For which we swap Florence and Beyoncé for Zeppelin and Cobain and get angry.
Here, nine of our most played songs.
Kanye West - "Power"
Kanye West: Ridiculous human being, damn good motivator.
Led Zeppelin - "Black Dog"
Opening lyrics: "Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move, gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove." 'Nuff said.
Nirvana - "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
There's a reason this jam's on so many workout playlists. It works.
Awolnation - "Sail" (Unlimited Gravity Remix)
You will feel like the hero in an epic dystopian blockbuster. It will be awesome.
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Can't Stop"
Right about now you're probably thinking of throwing in the towel (both literally and proverbially). Keep going. Do it for Kiedis.
The White Stripes - "Seven Nation Army"
Now this is a bass we're all about.
Eminem - "Till I Collapse"
Similar to Kanye, regardless of how you feel about Eminem, it's hard to not get pumped up by his songs.
Guns N' Roses - "Welcome to the Jungle"
Let Slash's majestic mane and glorious top hat guide you through that last set of overhead presses.
Aloe Blacc - "The Man"
Drop the weights, stretch it out and tell everybody you're the man, you're the man, you're the man. (For crushing that workout, duh.)
