The Best Workout Song Effect

I'm sure you have heard this song: "Till I Collapse" by Eminem:

A few years ago, I decided that it was, without a doubt, the best workout song of all time.
^Motivation to lift! Me a few months ago. Working towards getting that back with holiday eat fest 2014 behind  me.

This due to the fact that when exercising to it, you will begin to feel that you are the fastest, most powerful human who has ever graced earth with their presence. Through hardened lyrics and a chant that amps you up, you will find yourself imagining that by continuing to lift those weights, you are saving the world from disaster. It becomes a ballad of you vs. yourself. It truly manages to take me 'next level' in my workout, no matter what I'm doing and God bless it for that because motivation is half the battle. Here are a few things I always picture.

For real, it makes me unstoppable in my mind. And that's just what I need from it during that time. Thanks, Eminem!

What's your favorite workout song? 
I'm always looking for new ones in the ongoing battle of me vs. an aging metabolism.

haha not sure I'd want to feel like the Hulk, could end up smashing everything and that would get expensive. I don't usually play songs as thin walls in my apartment.

Lol!!! Eminem never had that effect on me. I remember when my dad learned how to burn a c.d. and only burned ONE song onto it. It was an Eminem song because he liked the line "he gets more ass than a toilet seat". Lol!!!

The song build me up buttercup always makes me want to move a little faster. Is that a lame pick?

I actually have seen dudes dropping weights and sounding like that picture of the Hulk, but looking no closer to him whatsoever. As for me, workout music is very different form everyone around here, as it happens to be mostly black metal. To regular people it wold keep them on edge, to me, it just drowns out the ad nauseam hip hop music in a loop.

Personally, I think this song is the greatest thing to ever grace motivational music
