100 Best Workout Songs for Powering Through Tough Training

100 Best Workout Songs for Powering Through Tough Training
Presented by Spartan Training®

For most of us, music is an integral component of the Spartan training session, and high-performance headphones are staples in our always-ready gym bags. And why not? Research has repeatedly shown that the best workout songs help motivate us during tough workouts, and it’s constantly proving itself to magically sync up with our toughest exercises.

Consider the kick-drum staccato of an explosive set of burpees or the deep squats that feel like heavy bass beats. Even post-workout stretches can feel like moments of musical bliss (“Everybody hurts … sometimes”).

Best Workout Songs

So what makes for the best workout songs? To democratize the lineup, we asked Spartans like yourself to provide the one song that can get them through any workout. The resulting list includes hip hop, pop, classic rock, 90s alternative, and even some incredibly heavy stuff. Feel free to queue these up the next time you're looking for some aural motivation.
