It’s About That Time Again

May 1, 2011

Well, it’s the first of May, and that means summer is right around the corner. People are going H.A.M. with their diets and workout regimes in an effort to get right for the summer. Sometimes it becomes incredibly difficult to coerce oneself to go to the gym. In order to keep people on their path towards their summer bodies, I uploaded two mixes, one for cardio and one for weightlifting. These are the songs that I find myself listening to the most whenever I’m at the gym and I figured, if worse comes to worst, at least it may offer you all some variety to break up the monotony of the gym.

The first mix is a mix of lighter music intended to be listened to during cardio (obviously).

The songs on it are upbeat and are from the likes of MIA, La Roux, Childish Gambino, Lupe Fiasco, Yelawolf, Jay-Z, Duck Sauce, and more. It clocks in at about  47 minutes, which should cover most cardio routines.

You can find “Run, Dummy!” here:

The second mix is for your weightlifting routine.

I’ve always found that I get the best results lifting when I’m listening to something intense. As such, this mix is a bit darker than the one I made for running. A lot of heavy bass, crazy lyrics, and more can be found here. I took songs from Army of the Pharoahes, M.O.P., Eminem, Joe Budden, Big Pun, Wu-Tang, and more. This one is a bit longer, clocking in at about an hour and a half.

You can find Racks on Racks on Racks (I know, I should’ve thought of a better name) here:

Me listening to these killer mixes at the gym hahahaha

Anyway, with everyone trying to get fit, I figured I would just throw this out there in case anyone needed something new. If y’all have any feedback I would LOVE to hear from you. Good luck to everyone who’s trying to get in shape for the summer!
