It’s hot, you’re sweaty and you feel like if you run one more step, you just might pass out on the asphalt. But all of a sudden, that song comes up on your iPod that propels you through the rest of your workout. Whether it’s the fast paced beat or the uplifting lyrics, many of us feel empowered by a special song when we’re in the zone. So what song pumps you up the most? We asked our Twitter followers to share their summer workout anthem with us to stay motivated, no matter how hot it’s getting!
@she_is_geeky: “My Body,” Young the Giant
@erinmoorman: My workout song is “Sexy and I Know It,” LMFAO.
@renea_shirey: “T.H.E (The Hardest Ever),” will.i.am. I play this the last mile of my runs to finish strong.
@MsHealthyWife: “What Makes You Beautiful,” One Direction. I can’t help but #MOVE when I hear it!
