Music Matters: The Dragon’s Top 20 Workout Songs!

This week’s post is all about the workout playlist.  Whether it’s called, “Gym Mix”, “Workout Power Mix”, “ Kick Ass Feel Good Mix” or whatever clever name you might give it, your workout music can be extremely important. In fact, it can be just as important as the food you eat prior to workout or the clothes and shoes you wear. You should think of your playlist as your best friend and training partner. Use it to help you through the toughest parts of your training.

I was inspired to write this post after recent conversations I had about how to stay motivated when working out alone. One of those conversations was about my favorite training songs. Well, without further adieu, here they are:


The Dragon’s Top 20 Workout Songs:

  1. Stronger – Kanye West
  2. ‘Till I Collapse – Eminem feat. Nate Dogg
  3. Click Click Boom – Saliva
  4. Good Feeling – Flo Rida
  5. 99 Problems – Jay Z
  6. Welcome to The Jungle – Guns N’ Roses
  7. Intergalactic – Beastie Boys

  19. It Takes Two – Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock
  20. Immigrant Song – Led Zeppelin

These songs are in no particular order. They are from a cross section of different genres and represent all of my various playlists. I’ve even included a very special song on the list and I’ll let you figure out which one it is <hint: it’s in the bottom half of the list>. I suggest that as you progress, you make multiple workout playlists with different themes. I have Rock oriented lists as well as Hip Hop, High Energy (Techno/Dub-Step) and even 70s and 80s lists. They help me mix things up when my training begins to get too monotonous.

Feel free to comment on this post with some of your favorite songs. Train hard, have fun and remember…

Dream Fit. Live Fit.

Making a good workout playlist can really help you take your training to the next level. These 20 songs are sure to get you moving!
