You gotta have them. The workout songs. The loud, chaotic, wall shaking music served with an underlying hum of intensity to prime your adrenaline pump. That is what I am talking about. It will push you through the tough times. It will get that rhythmic beat starting in your head that snakes to your heart, through the gut and into all your muscles. It goes to the top of the bell tower and starts the incessant ringing signaling it is time to get after it. It is time to run. It is time to turn it loose. It is time to let it fly.
The music doesn’t have to be fast loud head banging, but in can be. It can be something a driving as Kashmir by Led Zeppelin (my personal pro sports introduction song if I would have played pro sports and required an introduction) or something like Sandman by Metallica or country and western like, Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way? by Waylon Jennings. And what about the funk classic from Parliament, Flashlight? That will work and so will you. It doesn’t matter it just must have that underlying hum of intensity.
Today’s Workout Song is Bloodbuzz, Ohio by The National. Great song.
“I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees.”
