Here are 10 excellent hard rock songs to listen while working out in the gym.
These are, in my opinion, 10 of the greatest songs to listen while working out in the gym. Find the power and motivation you sometimes can’t get, and enjoy working out. Hope they work for you!
Year: 1982 Album: Saints & Sinners
In my opinion, a motivating song for anything you want to do that requires some extra effort, for example a gym routine. Personally I recommend the 1987 version, it sounds better and has more power.
A perfect opener for the gym routine CD. “I ain’t wasting no more time”
Year: 1989 Album: Trash
Alice Copper is a must in this list, and surely this song will keep you pumped and full of fire from the beginning. Burn that muscles!
Year: 1980 Album: Back in black
Great song for a great album. Angus Young’s guitar creating some suspense in the beginning and then Brian Johnson’s voice appearing to blow your head and definitely motivating anyone.
“Shoot to thrill, play to kill!”
Year: 1993 Album: Get a grip
The other great opener of the list for the CD. The power of the guitar riff and the drums gives you the strength to wake up and start working out really motivated.
Year: 1974 Album: Burn
Keeps the fire alive, keeps you alive. There’s not much more to say about this song, it’s a classic and one of the best ones, it’s a must in this list and if you don’t know it, just listen to it and you’ll probably think the same way as me. An old one, but one of the best ones.
“All I hear I is burn!”
Year: 1981 Album: Too fast for love
“Plug me in”, “Turn me on”, Since the moment this song starts to bang in your head, you’ll be automatically with the need of using some energy, and what better place to do it than in the gym. Use the strength to become “a little bit better than you used to be”.
Year: 1987 Album: Hysteria
Another classic album from one of my favorite bands. “Red light, yellow light, green light, GO!” Just listen to this song and it will be inevitable to start moving. Find the strength in this masterpiece creation.
Year: 1984 Album: 1984
“Pistons popping, ain’t no stopping now!” Come on, don’t give up, and take out some extra power to complete the work out by listening to Eddie Van Halen and company. Although I personally prefer Sammy Hagar, in this song Lee Roth can really make you move.
Year: 1990 Album: Flesh and blood
It’s almost the end of the routine and probably your strength and motivation are going down quickly. The perfect moment for this song. Recharge the last batteries and ride the wind.
Year: 1972 Album: Machine head
Deep Purple does it again. The only band that has two songs in the list.
Finally, you’re about to finish the routine. And it’s the moment for this song that I personally love. Blackmore created here the best guitar solo in the history of music in my opinion. It really takes you to another place, full of power, full of speed; just let your head enjoy it while your body finishes the last reps of the day.
Now you’re done. “I’m a highway star!”
Year: 2004 Album: Hellfire club
OK, I know this is not hard rock, but is one of my favorite songs and it’s really full of power, keeps you alive and wanting for more. “No broken wings to stop me stream!” Long live Hellfire Tobi, power metal representative in the list. Optional.
