The Weight Lifting Music That Will Get You Into Beast Mode


If you’re looking for some motivation to really increase the energy during your next workout, look no further than this pumped up weight lifting music to get through that last set. A great playlist can get you in the right mindset (and, let's be honest, distract you from the burn) when you think you just can't possibly do another rep on the leg press machine. Time your moves with the music, or push through the end of a song to get the most out of your gym time. (While you’re at it, check out these ways to perfect your strength training).

From rap and hip-hop to rock and pop, this list has a little something for everyone and every mood, so you’ll never have a dull moment or even think about stopping before you max out. No one likes a monotonous workout, so jam to Jay-Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” during shoulder presses, get deeper into your squat to the Weeknd’s “The Hills," and finally, end the circuit with some power ab moves with Daft Punk’s “Doin’ It Right.” There’s enough Beyoncé, Drake, and Kanye on here to take you from warm up to cool down. Grab a weight bench and headphones and get lifting!
