I think I know just what we need…

Even Rocky had a montage.

I’ve been in a workout rut for the past couple months. There are a bunch of reasons contributing to that, but mostly, I just haven’t had the ambition to drag my ass to the gym. As the weeks go by, it’s becoming harder and harder to drag said ass, as it’s getting larger. And that pisses me off.

So what am I to do in a situation like this? I go all “High Fidelity” on you.

Top 5 Songs To Workout To When You Don’t Feel Like Working Out.

  1. Cake – The Distance
    “the sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
    and long ago somebody left with the cup”
    While this song is on, I can run until I drop unconcious.
  2. Robert Tepper – No Easy Way Out
    “There’s no easy way out, no short cut home.”
    Shut up. At least it’s not “Eye of the Tiger”.
  3. Eminem – Lose Yourself
    “Success is my only mothafuckin’ option, failure’s not”
  4. Wu-Tang Clan feat Tom Morello & Chad Smith – Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nothin’ to F&%k Wit
    This song makes me want to beat the hell out of somebody something. Thank you Ernesto Hoost.
  5. Foo Fighters – All My Life

Honorable mentions: (Bush – Machinehead, Run DMC – Tougher Than Leather, TCM – Name of the Game)

Some obvious choices, perhaps. Screw you, make your own list. I ran 6km at lunch, and I spent an hour in the boxing studio after work, so clearly it worked.
