Fighting Aliens…

…or robots! Or zombies! Come on…admit it. You know you like to imagine yourself doing badass things when you workout. I can’t be the only weirdo who does this. Whose image is regularly floating around in my mind while I train…?

That’s right. Sarah Connor. If you don’t know who she is, you’re wrong. (Here’s a hint so you can save face: she’s the heroine from Terminator). Look at those ripped arms… And how badass is that image of her? Love it.

I’ve also learned just how important MUSIC is to me during my workouts. Whenever I realize I’ve forgotten my iPod shuffle my heart sinks to my stomach; especially if it’s leg day. Ugh. That’s the WORST! Recently I’ve found the PERFECT album for my workouts. I could be happy listening to nothing but Nero these days. Here are a couple of my favs from Nero’s album “Welcome Reality.”

You’re lying if you say those songs don’t make you want to chew dumbbells! I’ve practically abandoned the idea of listening to anything BUT dubstep in the gym these days. I definitely recommend that you add some Nero or Skrillex to your workout playlist and see what they do for you. You’ll thank me when you see the changes in your physique due to your newly found intensity.

  1. Hey Jessica – yes, ‘Promises’ has got to be the standout track from Nero right now, but there are a few others you should check for MAX workout pump!

    Try (apologies if you are already rocking these):

    * ‘Levels (Skrillex Remix)’ – Avici
    * ‘titanium’ – David Guetta (regular radio edit is JUST fine!)
    * ‘The Weekend (Daishi Dance House Nation Remix)’ – Michael Gray
    * ‘Where Have You Been (Cosmic Dawn Remix)’ – RiRi
    * ‘Niggas in Paris (Konec Bootleg Remix)’ – JayZ & Kanye
    * ‘212 (vs BHQ remix)’ – Azelia Banks
    * ‘Beautiful People (Club Mix DRM)’ – Chris Brown & Benny Benassi

    and my personal fave for really heavy Leg days : ‘Only Insomnia In The World (Djs from Mars FM Remix)’ – Rihanna vs Faithless

    Remember to shout the choruses! 😉

    • Thanks for the list! I’m aware of a couple of those songs and have been meaning to download them. I’ll be sure to check out the others! I’m always on the lookout for new songs to keep my playlist fresh.
