You know that feeling when you’re at the gym and your motivation and energy levels are just about empty? But then, a miraculous thing happens … you hear those familiar first few notes of your favorite pump-up song in your headphones. You start to feel a rush of endorphins, helping you bounce back and finish your workout strong.
A good song can keep you motivated and focused on the task at hand. A good playlist can help you take on the world — or just the seemingly insurmountable workout ahead of you.
That’s why we enlisted the help of a guy who is no stranger to a hard-core workout, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who gets part of his gym motivation from this playlist. While we’re not guaranteeing you will grow to mimic The Rock’s physique, we promise these songs are sure to give you the pump-up needed to power through even the toughest runs, lifts, rides, races or other sweaty endeavors.
