7 Great Songs For Your Workout Playlist
Start writing a post

The summer is a great time to establish (or even re-establish) a workout routine. Listening to music with great beats and inspiring lyrics make the process all the more exciting. Here are some songs that will get you completing PR's in all of your sets.

"Champion" by Fall Out Boy.


Truth be told, there are dozens of Fall Out Boy songs that would go well in a workout playlist. I've completed many workouts/runs to their music. However, this song is the ultimate song for when you're not sure if you have the strength to keep going. "If I can live through this, I can live through anything."

"My Shot" by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anthony Ramos, Daveed Diggs, Okieriete Onaodowan, Leslie Odom Jr., and the Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton


This song is from the tony-award winning musical "Hamilton." It emphasizes Alexander Hamilton's determination to make the most of the opportunities he has in the colonies, and listening to this song will definitely inspire you to "not throw away your shot" at running a personal best or adding that extra weight onto the bar during your deadlifts.

"I'll Make a Man Out of You" by Donny Osmond.


This is a very entertaining song for when you need to feel hyped up, especially for all you Disney lovers out there. Also, who wouldn't feel emboldened during a workout by remembering how Mulan defied gender stereotypes?

"Elevate" by DJ Khalil, Denzel Curry, YBN Cordae, SwaVay, and Trevor Rich


This song is only one of the many bad-ass tunes featured in the film "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse." Featured at the end credits, it's sung in the point of view Spider-Man being his best superhero self and succeeding in stopping crime.

"More" (RedOne Jimmy Joker Remix) by Usher


This song is a little more of a throwback, but the beat will definitely get you moving and giving more.

"Can't Hold Us" (ft. Ray Dalton) by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis


Another throwback with a good beat for all you lovers of rap. This song will definitely help you "fight til it's over" during your gym workout.

"Crazy = Genius" by Panic! At The Disco.


The combination of strong drum beats, a jazzy feel, and Brendon Urie's killer vocals are sure to captivate you enough to forget how hard you're working out. And, if you ever feel crazy for exercising, this song will remind you that you're also a genius.

These songs are just a few of the many incredible songs there are to work out to. Make sure to give them a listen.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
